3 unique Easter decor trends for 2014
By Aimee Heckel
One of the best parts about being a parent is the holidays. They come to life again. The Easter bunny returns, with all of his magic. Spring glows with excitement.
Transform your home into an Easter wonderland this month with these three fun Easter decor trends that your kids will love.
1. Baskets are fun, but how about nests instead?
Bird nests accomplish the same thing as the traditional Easter basket — but they’re a fun new spin on the old tradition (one that’s based on nature, too). Instead of leaving an Easter morning surprise in a basket, leave your kids a nest — or a few nests, hidden around the house up high.
Incorporate nests into your table decor, too. For your Easter brunch centerpiece, put real, hard-boiled eggs in a nest, or shave potatoes, form them like a nest and bake them in the oven. Line them with cheese and garlic for a festive and creative version of hash browns.
Pick up a decorative bird nest on a twig at Jo-Ann fabrics for cheap, only $2.49. Save money on your Jo-Ann purchases with these coupons, plus get 6 percent Cash Back from ShopAtHome.com. Read more articles about saving money at Jo-Ann stores here.
2. With birds on the brain, decorate with bird houses, too.
Pick up some unfinished bird houses at the craft store and decorate them with your kids. Pick a theme: maybe bedazzled and sparkly, or nature-inspired (glue twigs, leaves and flowers on the houses). Hang the bird houses around your home or place them on the mantle.
After the holiday, hang them in your backyard for real birds. Make this a family tradition, and every year you can add a new birdhouse (or two) to your outside collection.
3. Use egg shells in new ways.
