Even if you’re the sort of person who goes completely bunny-nas (see what we did there?) for Easter every year, this year, cut yourself a break. Whether you’re hosting a digital feast, connecting with a few loved ones at home, or going it solo, you’re doing great even if Easter is a few scrambled eggs and some classical music. (Sounds pretty good, right?)
That said, if you simply won’t feel like it’s a holiday without some festive pastels or eggs lolling about, here are a few things you could do to spruce things up. (Next year, you can kick it up a notch and order our Floral Meadow dinner plates. This year: cardboard crafts!) Now hop to it!
Got just a ton of cardboard kicking around from deliveries? We’re right there with you. That’s why we just couldn’t love these cardboard eggs from Handmade Charlotte any more. If you have acrylic craft paint, you’re set.
Paper & Stitch gives us these springy-as-can-be garlands, a nice reminder that the outdoors exist! We love that you could swap in all sorts of pretty flowers that look good, and that needle and thread are the “fancy” things you need to make it all come together.
Cue the doubletakes, whether on Zoom or in your own home: Easter egg placeholders are made to look like gems, using clay. This is definitely not one we would have conjured on our own! Props to Sugar & Cloth.
Sometimes what you have for flora in the house are the shortest, stubbiest, about-to-wilt blooms. Even those take fairly kindly to this genius presentation from Lovely Indeed. This craft is all about painting the eggshells with a delicate verdant hue. Poppies, if you’ve got them, look best. But keep in mind that this year is all about grace, and giving yourself lots of it.
