DIY Easter Decorations
A watercolor Easter card shows how creative this season is. Spring is colorful and vibrant, which can inspire multiple home projects and gifts. Here are some other ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Exterior Wall Designs
Many of the tips in our design-a-wall tutorial can apply to other areas. Two examples include hanging art on a patio wall for your Easter party and decorating a concrete floor with chalk art. Blocking off space makes for areas perfect for games or creative drawings. Whichever you choose, you can add to the fun by getting the kids involved in decorating.
To match your watercolor cards, you can decorate your eggs with watercolor paint. (This kind of paint isn't edible, so only decorate eggs no one will eat.) Such paints can create different styles than what you get from dipping in egg coloring kits. To make a speckled egg, wrap the wet egg in plastic while drying. You can also create a melting effect by mixing very little water in the paint and dripping it down the sides.
You can cut any kind of paper into egg shapes and place them in a ring to create a beautiful Easter wreath. After choosing how big you want your eggs and making a few templates, it's time to decide the look you want. You could use pale construction paper or gift wrap, but how about something more personal? One idea is to gather pictures and use a prepaid 4-by-6 plan to print them. Using an egg-shaped template, you can cut these images out and make a photo wreath.
As you get ready for Easter, keep in mind all the imaginative ways you can decorate and have fun with family. Watercolor Easter cards for celebration invitations or seasonal greetings are one of many ways to evoke this vibrant spirit. Shutterfly has a lot of tools and idea pages to get you started.
