Last-Minute Easter Decor
When I got out my Easter decorations the other day I only found one box. 🙁 Since most store-bought offerings are not my style I decided to make last-minute Easter decor with things I already have.
Last year we had just moved into our tiny rental and I didn’t even decorate for Easter. I also didn’t have room for hosting Easter, as is our tradition. When I sorted through things in our storage units for a yard sale this last summer, I purged a lot of decorations from all holidays. Our house is much bigger this year so now I am kinda regretting some of that purge. Therefore, last-minute Easter decor was a must.
I started out with a small branch from a tree my hubby was pruning. Using an old flower pot for the base, and middle son bringing me some gravel, I “planted” my branch to “grow” my Easter tree.
Peat Pot Easter Buckets
A stash of peat pots were transformed into little Easter buckets. I sponge painted white on the outside. Craft wire was used for the handles. Small vintage pictures were decoupaged to the front of the buckets and the handles were spruced up with buttons and ribbon. How’s that for last-minute Easter decor?
I added them to the Easter tree, but it still needed a little something-something.
I had just finished making crocheted flower garlands for my Etsy shop and decided mini version of the flowers would be the perfect last-minute Easter touch to bring out the “spring” in my tree. Psst! I used the flower instructions from my Crochet Egg Pattern.
I simply hot glued them to the branches.
I wrapped some fabric strips around a couple of garden tools and added them to the pot to complete the tree.
Bed Spring Flower Pots
I needed something for my last-minute dining table decor so I cut bed springs down a bit and inserted little flower pots. In this picture they have the grass, but I am still going to add jelly beans and a peep.
Recycled Easter Vases
This last-minute Easter decor idea cam from the trash. I saved two spaghetti sauce cans a couple of weeks ago and after a little paint, some scraps of burlap, lace and a tie of jute, they were restyled into flower vases. I’ll fill them with cuttings from the beautiful abundance of color that has bloomed in my yard.
I still have a few other things I would like to make, but I wanted to get this posted before it got too late. I’m off to the grocery store and then more last-minute decorating. 😉
Have a great weekend and a wonderful Easter!
