Looking for some quick and easy Easter decorating ideas? You can pull this pretty centerpiece together in 10 minutes. This Easter basket with bunnies is a lovely addition to your Spring decor and is easy, fast and budget-friendly. I’ll tell you how I did it and how you can use what you already have to get this look.
I love spring. I think it is a miraculous season here in the Netherlands. One day we will have warm and sunny days that will make you feel like summer has almost arrived already. The next we will be plummeted back into torrential rains, wind and fall storms. Nature however doesn’t mind. The countryside and my garden begin to wake up and soft hued greens are popping up everywhere.
Early spring usually means that it is too soon, to bring the outside in for real. Not much is blooming and those flowers that I do have in my yard I cherish way too much to cut them for a bouquet inside. Most branches still have small buds and the leaves are not really showing yet.
So for spring decorating I often resort to using faux flowers and greenery. I think it is okay because let’s face it those eggs and bunnies aren’t real either ?
Spring is light and fluffy and easy going and so is my decorating for spring. Let’s make an easy, beautiful 10 MINUTE EASTER CENTERPIECE idea to bring some spring decor to our home.
This pretty arrangement took me 10 minutes to pull together. That is after I had spent an hour or so giving these Easter bunnies I thrifted a little makeover. You can see the before and after transformation process in my “Thrifted Easter Bunnies get a Makeover” post.You might already have some Easter bunnies to use in your spring decorating. Most people do.
My Easter centerpiece looked beautiful on my coffee table. Since I took these pictures I moved it to my outdoor garden table, where it brings some extra spring cheer to my patio. Because my centerpiece is nicely contained in the basket (also a thriftstore find), moving it around is super easy.
How to make This Easy Easter Centerpiece
Here’s what you will need to make my Easter bunnies and spring bulbs arrangement.
Materials I Used
- Faux Greenery
- Blooming flowers
- (Faux) nest with small easter eggs.
Materials you could also use
I found this round wicker rug basket in a thriftstore and gave it a quick coat of paint. You can use any kind of large platter, tray or even a vintage carving board. The function of my basket is simply to make the centerpiece make like a purposeful collection rather than a grouping of loose items. It makes the centerpiece easier to move too.
The bunnies in this centerpiece give height to the arrangement. If you don’t have bunnies, or yours are small you can bring some height to your centerpiece by using candlesticks with candles, or a tall vase with blossom branches. I set the bunnies on some books that are hidden by the greenery. That way they stuck out high enough about the edge of the basket.
I repurposed my faux greenery and roses from previous projects (some of it you might have recognized from my winter garden table centerpiece). It’s all pretty basic stuff from Ikea or the dollar store. Even the cheap faux flowers and greeneries are looking better all the time. It is one of the things I always keep an eye out for because it pays off to have a little stash of faux branches with leaves and flowers in your decorating arsenal.
For flowers I choose fragrant hyacinths in a simple clear vase. Any flower would work, just choose your favorite flower of the season. Tulips for example would have been a great choice too, or bright and yellow daffodils.
The nest I used I have had for years. It is a real one I found in my garden one day after a vicious storm. Most craft stores have a large choice of faux nests around this time of year. Inside are some small eggs. I went for the neutral look, but it would look pretty to echo the color of your flowers here too.
Put Your Spring & Easter Centerpiece together
As I said the bunnies are standing on some books for added height. The greenery is simply tucked into the open spots as are the roses. Add your vase with flowers and your nest with eggs and you are done. All the fresh green really brings in that since of the new season – the freshness of spring, the bunnies are welcoming easter and the next with eggs are staples in spring decorating. You see, how easy it is too pull a spring and Easter arrangement together?
