Our Easter Home Decor! Only $25 Spent!!

Monday, April 2, 2012

Hey Ya'll!! I am so excited to reveal my home decor for this Easter. As most of you already know, I am afraid of COLOR! Meaning, my home is very neutral and to be honest, color has always been something I feared. I know, it is a sad reality.

This year, I was going to "spring" up my home in greens and yellows, but a little birdie on my shoulder was begging me to decorate with all the spring colors. So since I have to share this home with him, aka Mr. Wonderful, I decided to cave in and make him happy =)

So with a heavy heart, I did! I scoped out our home, made mental notes and headed to the store to gather materials and supplies.

In my title, I mentioned that I only spent $25... yup, this is so true! Wanna know? Continue to follow =)

Take Note: The Dollar Tree is your friend. A kind, gentle, generous friend! One who you can turn to when budget is tight. All you have to do is activate your creative mojo and let your imagination run free when you walk in that door!

The key is to scope out your home and see how you can dress it up with a Spring Fling =)

I had a lot of jars and vases hanging around the house. I decided to use these babies and fill them up with pretty goodies.

I bought one bag of crinkled paper for grass and Easter snow globes to place inside.

This snow globe is my favorite. I love the bunny pulling the Easter cart basket.

In the center, I also added crinkled paper and placed three styrofoam eggs and adorned them with a simple ribbon for that extra added "awww".

The Dollar Tree had a ton of peonies. In all shapes and sizes. 6 per bunch. My heart was literally fluttering when I saw the wall of peonies. <3

I took this hurricane vase I made for our guest room and placed a pretty peony inside.

I did the same with this hurricane but instead, placed a hydrangea inside.

Can you believe I only spent $12 to create all three of these spring wreaths?

There is nothing better than a cutie patootie arrangement being held in a milk glass vase.

{{btw, one bag of crinkled grass (grass from the Dollar Tree) lasted me all four arrangements}}

Oh hello my pretty little dining table centerpiece.

I only spent $4 on this arrangement.
- 2 bunches of peonies
- 2 packs of glittered styrofoam eggs

{I already owned the milk glass vase and manzanita branches}

Now this wreath was super easy and super fun!

All I basically did was take my fall wreath, pulled out all the fall flowers and added one bunch of pink peonies. I also added 2 colored wired ribbon for a completed look.

To top it off, I added the left over eggs that I had lying around.

And there you have it! Our Easter decor for just under $25!! Earlier I mentioned I had a heavy heart about deorating with tons of color, well I am happy I did! It is so bright and full of cheer! I hope you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed creating =)

Do you usually decorate for Easter?
