To achieve it, we are inspired by the Scandinavian decoration which privileges the natural elements and the neutral colors.
Below, I have gathered the best Easter DIY ideas and I also share a few tips to help you create your Easter decor.
How to create a Scandinavian Easter decor
There are a few important elements you can use to create your modern Easter decor.
1. Neutral color palette
It’s no secret, Scandinavian decoration always favors neutral colors such as white, gray, black, and natural elements as wood, wool, leather … You can start with these materials and colors to create your Easter decor. Prefer light materials such as cotton and linen fabrics. As Easter is also the celebration of spring and renewal, you can complete your color range with the addition of pastel colors, light yellow, pink and green, will add a touch of happiness to your home.
We all agree that there are no Easter holidays without eggs. Instead of plastic eggs, prefer hard-boiled eggs dyed with natural pigments. You can also use wooden or plaster eggs that you will reuse in the following years.
A great idea is to keep eggshells and recycle them to make pretty planters or flower vases. It’s a perfect option for creating an Easter table centerpiece. Remember to properly clean your eggshells before using them for your crafts.
3. Flowers and Greens
A spring decoration involves adding a few flowers, privilege seasonal flowers such as daffodils, crocuses, tulips or jacinths. If you don’t have a green thumb, paper flowers are an excellent alternative. You can also just add leaves or moss on a vase.
A few branches collected and grouped in a planter will create a cute Easter tree where you can hang some decorations, such as mini eggs or small bunnies.
4. Airy decoration
The idea of a minimal Easter decoration is to give your house an air of freshness and renewal. Therefore best is to favor delicate decoration and ornaments. No need to cover the house with giant bunnies.
You can hang some garlands or banners. Use small vases to display fresh flowers. Place baskets with eggs through the house, and let’s not forget to hang a pretty wreath to your front door.
5. Keep it simple
You understood, the key to a successful Scandinavian Easter decoration is to keep it simple. And if you feel like you need to add more, don’t hesitate to extend the decoration outside. The sunnies days are back, so your backyard, deck or even balcony can also benefit from a fresh decorative touch.
