We are sliding into April which means it's officially time to think about Easter! The thing I want to stress about any type of holiday decorating is that you can use the items you already have and sparingly embellish them with seasonal objects. There is no need to buy extra holiday-specific decor, unless you happen to find something adorable that you just love (like my bunnies!).
Remember when I showed you how I spruced up my mantel for Spring?
Well, here it is with a touch of Easter. I kept all the same elements... I just added a few bunnies, some eggs, and a few chicks to seasonalize the decor I already had on the mantel.
I got all of my Easter items from Hobby Lobby. They have eggs that look fake and eggs that look really real... choose the ones that look real! In other words, leave the overly glittered and picture embossed eggs on the shelf and go for the more subtle ones.
For these two hurricanes on the right, I simply topped off the Reindeer moss/split peas that were already there with some speckled eggs. The white eggs were a Pottery Barn inspiration from here. I found the white eggs for less than $1 at Hobby Lobby and added my own scrapbook stickers for a similar look! You could spell just about anything... mine spell Jesus :)
On left side, once again, I just added to the Reindeer moss that was already in the hurricane. I found these little chicks at Hobby Lobby, but they had an ugly egg tied to the top of the chick with an ugly ribbon. I just ripped the ugly off and re-glued the "feathers" back on the top to get two cute little chicks!
Lastly, I added a little nest with the same eggs to the top of the greenery arrangement on the far left.
I think the result is subtle Easter decor that doesn't look too overdone! What do you think?
On the dining room table, a few bunnies and another birds nest are all that I needed to add a touch of Easter to this table scape. Candlesticks (such as the Amira blue one shown) are a great item to use for decorating with items other than candles... birds nests and moss balls are a few of my favorite things to put on top of a candlestick!
You've heard me sing the praises of good generic glass items many times over! I love the classic look of glass... it never goes out of style and will go with absolutely anything!
Here is a little touch of Easter on my staircase ledge using some glass pieces that I literally use all.the.time! Notice that I turned the hurricane upside down, filled it with eggs, and topped it with a boxwood ball?!
By the way, the medium glass candlesticks pictured here are on special this week for only $8.96!!! You need to get a few of them if you don't already have them! You can click the image below to shop online. Be sure to check the outlet and the weekly deals in the outlet!
And last but not least, I added a few fun oversized Easter eggs (made with scrapbook paper, Modge Podge and Kraft eggs from Hobby Lobby) to my coffee table bowl.
So those are a few ideas for adding just a touch of Easter decor to your home this month. Remember, you don't need a lot... just a few touches!

Lastly, this little vignette is not necessarily Easter - just Spring! But I thought I'd share it with you anyway! Like usual, I've used split peas as a filler in the hurricane, a giant boxwood ball inside the dome, a burlap lining in the tall hurricane and some great real-looking branches. I added a little sign and a few birds and birds nests to complete the Spring look!
