Decorating your house for Easter can be a challenge especially if you are looking to achieve a very cohesive or all put together look as opposed to putting up child art project (which of course is a perfectly acceptable way to decorate). So for those who are looking for Easter craft projects that can also serve as a decor item for your home, here are a few examples. These Easter craft examples are easy enough to be made in a relatively short period of time and with little money.
Easter placemats and place settings
If you are planning on having family or friends over for a Easter meal, you probably want your dinning table to look its best. Decorating your dining room table is something that many people overlook as they are planning for the decor of their homes. Not to worry. With a few simple household items you can turn a bland table into a table worthy of an Easter feast! Start by making your own placemats. There could be a book written about the different things that you can use for placemats but we will mention only two. The first is to take construction paper or another sturdy material such as large ribbon and weave the material together in a simple rectangular shape. Leaving the edges unfinished makes the project go faster and even adds to the appeal. Another placemat idea is to take some Easter grass (the plastic stuff you use as filler in baskets) and have it serve as the bed for your charger. This simple decorating technique takes just seconds but can have a big impact. Set the rest of your table as if you were going to eat at it this afternoon. Making your own place cards out of paper and simple shapes is a nice way to welcome your guest and let them know where they will be sitting.
