2. Use jars to decorate the house

Jars are a great and inexpensive way to brighten up your home décor this Easter. You can use them as flower vases or to put chocolate Easter eggs inside. If you're feeling extra creative, why not mix together a delicious fruit punch and use the jars as a decorative mug? Don't forget to top it off with a frilly straw.

3. Make your own Easter egg decorations

If you love your arts and craft, why not make your own Easter eggs? Set aside some time after work to knit, stitch and glue your own egg creation. For those who lack the crafting skills, you could also just boil some eggs and paint them with non-toxic paint. Unleash your inner creativity!

4. Burlap is great for dining settings

If you're thinking of having a family get together this Easter, you'll want to set the table nicely. Burlap is a great material to bring out that springtime feel that's perfect for Easter festivities too.

5. Turn simple treats into themed treats

You don't have to go out of your way to bake an out-of-this-world bunny shaped cake. Bake some simple cupcakes and dress them up with handmade toppers! Some colored paper, scissors and toothpicks can go a long way. Don't be afraid to experiment with different materials too.
