What comes to your mind when you think about Easter? Are you excited to see the flowers bloom and the grass begin to spring back up through the ground? This article will give you a better idea of how you can bring the primitive country design into your Easter decorating fun!
A few of the items most people think about when they think about Easter are bunnies, eggs, chicks, flowers and items associated with spring. The primitive country decorating style has all these things and more available to you.
Color – You might think that Easter colors are off limits to someone who decorates in this style, because they don’t typically match a primitive country décor. Then I have some great news for you. You will be pleasantly surprised to find that country Easter colors blend very smoothly with your other primitive country items and still give you that bright fresh feeling you look forward to every spring.
Bunnies – Bunnies come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. You can choose from wooden bunnies to stuffed ‘grubby’ bunnies for your decorating needs. If you’re lucky enough you might be able to find an old cake mold tin in the shape of a bunny and your decorating takes on a whole new look. Or maybe you’d like to have the carrots that bunnies love to eat. You can find fabric carrots that look like they were made for your decorating style.
You can even find milk chocolate bunnies that aren’t edible, but sure smell like they are. They’re made out of fabric and prepared to look and smell just like an Easter morning favorite for kids around the world.
Eggs – Eggs are a versatile item that can be placed in any number of arrangements and areas in your home. You could make or purchase a wreath in a spring theme with eggs attached to it. You might grab a wooden bowl and place some grass or maybe raffia in it and place a few eggs in it. This would make a beautiful centerpiece for your Easter meal. Eggs can also be placed on the end of a stick and can be arranged to become a unique bouquet for Easter.
Flowers – Flower arrangements take on a whole new meaning when you use them to decorate your primitive country home. They can be placed in traditional vases or can be arranged in a multitude of different items not typically associated with flower arrangements!
For instance, why not take an old dry sink pitcher or watering can and make a bouquet to place in it? Crocks, canning jars and tea pots also make a delightful display for your flower arrangements.
Miscellaneous Items – Pictures of bunnies and eggs and all things Easter can be found in a multitude of places. Pillows with pictures of Easter on them are a great addition to your holiday decorating.
Stitcheries of eggs and bunnies would add a special touch. Stacking boxes might have an Easter saying stenciled on the side of them. Toaster covers and pot holders are also available decorated in just the Easter pattern you’re looking for. Candles are a great choice for any decorating season. They are available in such delicious scents as lilac or fresh cut grass.
So, now that you’ve got a better idea of how easily and boldly you can decorate your home for Easter, go ahead and get started. It’s never too early to plan out your decorating needs.
