DIY Easter Decor Nest DIY Easter Decor Eggshell candle & wooden bead scandi style trivet
I mentioned in my Urban Jungle Bloggers Easter post that I was keeping our decor simple this year. We’re all over the place over this weekend, and I’m making various bits & pieces for a friend’s party, & family egg hunt, so I’m being kept plenty busy enough with all of that. I’m more than happy with the spring feeling, greens, bulbs & blooms spreading throughout the house at the moment, but I wanted to add a little Easter vibe too…

These 3 ideas for DIY Easter decor are reeeeally quick & easy, but very effective, I think. They also have reusable elements which I like alot…

\\ I picked up the twig nest & wreath, miniature eggs, wooden beads & leather cord all very inexpensively on a recent swing by HobbyCraft.

\\ I simply slid small snippings of gyp into the twig nest & wreath (they’ve lasted 4-5 days so far without water). I then added a few found feathers amongst the wreath twigs for extra texture & shape. You could also go the whole way round the wreath with foraged flowers & feathers, or perhaps try glueing some of the eggs to it – just depends how time strapped you are.

\\ For the eggshell candles, I used leftover wax & tapers from the candles I made for this post (where you can also find the link to Katy’s wonderful scented candle tutorial). As with Katy’s instructions, I used double quantities of wax flake as it took to fill an egg (or 8 teaspoons per medium size egg). I gently melted the wax in a jug (in the microwave), poured the melted wax into the cleaned out eggshells, and left to harden overnight. these probably took less than 15 minutes to make!

\\ For the scandi style wooden bead trivet/egg cups; I quite simply strung the beads onto a leather cord & tied off, using nine 15mm beads or seven 20mm per item. So easy peasy, but so effective! Great for your candles, perfect for boiled eggs at breakfast…

Enjoy your Easter x
