Are you seeking a different kind of Easter decoration? In this striking ceiling-mounted mobile, beautifully patterned quail eggs hang next to decorative mini-nests and hen's eggs in different sizes.  To make the fragile egg cases, either carefully remove the tops from raw eggs, drain the egg white and yolk and rinse the eggs, or remove the tops from boiled eggs, spoon the contents out and carefully clean them.

DIY FLORAL CHAIR TIES

Elevate the humble dining chair with a quick floral fix that will delight guests, and add that extra special finishing detail of prettiness.  Simply tie small bundles of dried, fresh, or mixed flowers with colored ribbon, and fasten them to each chair back. Keep the ribbon trails long for a fresh (not twee) finish. Alternate colors on each chair for a cheerfully relaxed, mix-and-match approach.

EASTER MANTELSCAPE

Pop a large branch into a statement vase, and adorn it with a recycled paper garland, and pegged feathers. Stagger pastel bud vases along the mantelpiece filled with mixed fresh and dried flowers for textural interest. Fill any gaps with chocolate eggs and bright candy, and add in a couple of seasonal figurines tied with ribbon for a playful twist.

NOD TO RUSTIC MATERIALS

If a neutral look is more to your taste, you can still create a themed tablescape using nudes and metallics to impress your guests. Opt for a cotton table cover and accompany with linen napkins.  Then dip some hollowed-out eggs in some gold or silver leaf to create a pop of color. If you want to have a centerpiece on your table, tie the look together with some pampas grass in a feature glass vase.

DIY EASTER WREATH

Enjoy an afternoon of crafty loveliness and make an Easter wreath to adorn your front door, interior, or wherever you please. Start by separating and creating small bunches of dried flowers, and trim the lengths. Attach the individual bunches to the wireframe by firmly wrapping the base stems with the reel wire. Overlap each bunch to avoid any gaps. Continue this process, in one direction until you are happy with the coverage and effect.

GROUP PERSONALIZED EGGS

For a more virtuous Easter egg that can be used as a place setting, room decor, or token gift, use spray paint to ‘dust’ the top third of boiled, or wooden eggs in a chosen shade, before stamping a loved one’s name, or even a favorite word onto the egg face.  Or, for a similar idea with less mess that looks oh so pretty, tie a simple piece of colored twine around each egg, and pop in a sprig of fresh or dried foliage.
