Looking for easy Easter decorations to put together with your kids or last minute? If you are anything like me … and I know you are because you’re part of Keeper of the Home :) … you have a few if not several mason jars around the house.
Here are some quick and easy ways to decorate your home this Easter with things you probably already have … like all those mason jars.
Fresh or fake flowers always make a stunning table decoration for any holiday.
You can use any size mason jar and snip a few spring blooms to brighten your home.
I just grabbed a pair of garden shears and a basket and walked around our property snipping and pruning my favorite flowering bushes!
2. Jelly Bean Jar
Jelly beans are a sweet part of our story. My hubs doesn’t like many sweets but he has a sweet tooth for Jelly Belly jelly beans. They are also a sweet way to share the Easter story.
Did you know Jelly Belly now has organic jelly beans? They’re made with real fruit juices and purees and taste just as good as the original Jelly Belly beans…add these to your Easter fun! (We added them to our Easter Bunny Munch!…see below)
Fun Fact: our wedding favor was a tin of Jelly Bellys…go to myjellybelly.com to personalize yours!
3. Mini Easter Tree
You may not decorate a tree outside for Easter like we do, but it’s a common tradition to decorate small branches or a fake tabletop tree in your home.
Send the kids out to pick up some small branches. Put those in the jar and hang plastic eggs or hollow eggs from your own DIY Easter Tree.
You’ll have an Easter tree for your centerpiece, complete with branches and eggs!
4. Resurrection Cookies in a Jar
Our family has always enjoyed making Resurrection Cookies and it’s one story we want to teach them to share! It’s easy to print off the recipe and instructions, and then tie it to a mason jar that you’ve filled with the sugar, pecans, and salt. Don’t forget to include on the tag that the recipient will need 3 eggs and a bit of vinegar!
5. Carrot Centerpiece
Carrots are one of my favorite things to decorate with (and eat!) over Easter. I found this idea on Pinterest and added it to my list for a fun twist on my table centerpiece!
6. Easter Bunny Munch
There is lots of munching going on with teenagers around! Fill a mason jar with this popcorn recipe and add your favorite kind of nuts and dried fruit for a fun and healthy Easter Bunny Munch.
