Some of the best holidays of the year happen in spring: Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, and Mardi Gras. These are opportunities to get family and friends together. It’s so much fun to decorate for the occasion, too.
Somebunny Loves You This Easter
What’s Easter without hand-painted eggs, adorable chicks, and the Easter Bunny. An Easter egg tree is the first thing that would pop into most people’s heads. Jennifer Perkins had a better idea. Why not transform your white artificial Christmas tree into everybody’s favorite rabbit?
She added big googly eyes with lime green eye shadow and lashes to the tree. Who says the Easter Bunny is a he, right? A pompom nose, pipe cleaner whiskers, and huge bunny ears (Jen used a headband) complete the look. Now that’s what you call magical Easter home décor!
Somewhere Over St. Patrick’s Rainbow
Whether you’re Irish not, this holiday is one for the books. It’s celebrated worldwide on March 17. Traditions include wearing green, eating corned beef and cabbage, giving playful pinches, and going all out on your St. Patrick’s Day décor.
You can decorate a green tree or wreath if you want to play by the rules. Or, bend them by going for gold. Create leprechaun, rainbow, shamrock, and pot of gold-inspired decorations. Why not go the extra mile and decorate with rainbow colors? This St. Paddy’s Day wreath by Jennifer Perkins says it all.
Hurrah for Mardi Gras
So, you’re not going to the parade. Who says you can’t have a blast like the New Orleanians? Use a palette of purple, gold, and green for your Mardi Gras decorations. These colors stand out on a white Christmas tree.
Check out this white tree masterpiece by Jennifer Perkins. She pulled out all the stops and crafted fun top hats, masks, and king cake Mardi Gras ornaments. The showstopper is her fancy mask tree topper. Get ready to dance around this tree like nobody is watching.
Now that you have the star of your spring décor theme, share these ideas with fellow decorators and celebrators!
