Make It: Easy Easter Table Decorations

This spring I am making my Easter table decorations. With the cold and snowy winter months behind us, a pop of fresh color for the table is a welcome sight.

Easter table decoration ideas using paint

Every year I try to come up with something new and festive for my Easter table. I decided to use leftover paint from other projects to make the plastic eggs you buy at the Dollar Store look a bit more stylish.

I simply painted the eggs with leftover paint in pastel colors. Once they were dry, I mixed white paint and water together and dipped my brush into the mix. Then I held the loaded brush over the eggs and moved my thumb across the bristles, creating little splatters of paint. I also used the same method with brown paint to make different speckles.

Let them dry and then place them in a basket or on a decorative platter lined with sheet moss and put them on your table.

For the rest of the Easter table decorations, add a colorful tablecloth or runner. Use napkins and plates in all different colors, and don’t forget a vase of pretty tulips. Nothing says spring more than a simple bouquet of Easter tulips.
