I haven’t had time to do proper Easter decoration at home this year (well, any year, really). But, I figured that this shouldn’t have to stop me from spreading some Easter vibes on the blog, so I decided to scout the web for my favorite minimalist Easter decoration ideas. Of course, with a DIY theme.
This Easter is already off to a good start. I took Wednesday to get one extra day of holiday, and Chris and I decided to go out for a city walk and just do some window shopping and take in a bit of the city vibe. First, we stopped at Soho Urban Eatery to share a Raw peanut butter crunch cake, and then we did some window shopping and some actual shopping. Chris finally picked up a pair of Diesel True Black jeans that he’s been eyeing for some time, and we just enjoyed the day strolling the city streets soaking in the sun.
When it was time for lunch, we headed up to Grünerløkka and stopped at Ur Kraft + Kolonial – one of our favorite hangouts for eating, especially since I have been off eggs, dairy and gluten for a good couple of months now, and I can always count on them to have a meal that supports my gut health and is also particularly tasty. If you’re ever in the area, I can highly recommend their UR casserole (UR-gryte). Organic, grass-fed meat…just yum!
On our way back home, I swung by the Dr. Marten’s store… And finally treated myself to the Dr. Marten’s Brogue shoes, which has been on my wish list since forever. I couldn’t be more excited about that! The lady at the store assured me it was the perfect Easter egg gift, and I couldn’t really argue with her on that sentiment.
Anyway, to put your minds (and mine) into the Easter spirit, here’s four of my favorite Easter décor DIYs for a minimalist kind of Easter (and the best part is, you can make them with stuff you probably already have access to at home or outside your door. So, if you, like me, forgot all about Easter decorations, don’t stress; I’ve got you covered)
I adore the simplicity of these napkins. They work well both as pure decorations and also as a Egg holder for boiled eggs on your Easter breakfast or lunch table. They also kind of resemble Easter bunnies with their napkin “ears”. With eggs, napkins and a piece of string, you’re good to go for these Easter decorations.
A couple of eggs and a sharpie, and these Easter eggs are a reality before you know it. Head over here for a detailed DIY.
Whether you’re vegan or just don’t want to mess around with eggs for your Easter decor, why not cut out some Egg shapes? Draw on them, or use these downloadable ones, and hang them on some branches from your backyard. If you don’t have a printer, you can easily cut out a few shapes yourself and decorate them however you feel like. Maybe with a sharpie, like the DIY above?
Or maybe a simple, elegant wreath might do the trick? The variations are endless. Look here for more wreath ideas.
With these ideas, it should be a no-brainer to get your house Easter holiday ready within seconds, shouldn’t it? Even with minimal preparations? I know I got inspired!
I wish you all a happy Easter! ♥︎
