Welcome to Dagmar’s Home!

Are you looking for super-easy Easter and spring decorating ideas?

Then you are at the right place! Who has the time for elaborate decorations?

Here are 10 Easter and spring decor ideas that are so easy that you can make them even if you are DIY challenged!

All of these ideas will only take a few minutes to make, promise.

Spring Decorating Ideas

Easter Subway Art

Just download, print, and frame this free Easter art (8×11). It doesn’t get any easier.

Clothespin Egg With a Surprise

I would do this with cardboard paper instead of wood.

All-Natural Easter Egg Dye Recipes

Synthetic food dyes found in most American candy have been linked to cancer, hyperactivity, and allergies, so they don’t enter our house if I can help it.

These soft natural egg dyes are so beautiful, don’t you agree?

Flower Centerpiece With Peeps

Along the lines of no food dyes, this is the only reason I would buy bunny Peeps – for a fun centerpiece. Seeing this,  I’m glad I didn’t donate that square vase I have to our thrift store.

Don’t put water into the vase with the Peeps — fill a smaller vase with water for the flowers so the Peeps don’t dissolve.

Healthy Easter Egg Hunt

Have the kids hunt for their lunch, or surprise them with this whole egg carton full of eggs filled with healthy treats!

DIY Daffodil Candy Cups

You can make these cute table decorations with the kids and fill the cups with organic/all-natural jelly beans.

Egg Cup Vases

Growing up in Germany, we would eat boiled eggs every Sundays, out of egg cup. I’ve found that Americans don’t eat them like that very often, but maybe you still have some pretty egg cups around you could use for this sweet Easter/spring display.

I did something similar for this easy Easter tablescape:

Brown Paper Bag Basket

This basket is so easy to make, and the kids can decorate it with crayons or Easter stickers.

Pretty DIY Easter Cards

I have a whole book of scrapbook paper I didn’t know what to do with until I saw this idea for pretty Easter egg cards you can make with left-over paper (scrapbook, wrapping paper, wall paper, etc.). Have the kids help you!

Decorating With Baby Food Jars

How adorable is this? Just clean a baby food jar, find a few twigs, and buy inexpensive butterflies at the craft store to make this spring decoration everyone will be talking about.

great roundup of ideas! I love the egg lunch idea! Thanks for linking up at Merry Monday Link party!

You were reading my mind thank you! I have some much scrapbook paper just sitting around collecting dust now I have a plan for it.

What a great round up of ideas!! I especially love that they are super easy, it’s not that I’m DIY challenged it’s just that with homeschooling 6 kids there just isn’t the time. I have been looking for a natural way to dye eggs this year, the less chemicals the better in my opinion. Pinning, stumbling, tweeting, and sharing on Google+. Thanks for lining up with Inspire Me Monday. Have a blessed week!!
