Simple, Eco-Friendly Spring & Easter Decorating Ideas

Today I want to share some of the activities I do around this time of the year and I have compiled six simple, eco-friendly spring & Easter decorating ideas.

When the sun comes up earlier in the mornings again, when you wake up hearing the birds sing and when the first flower bulbs peek out from the soil, you know that spring is just around the corner. Spring is a time of hope, of growth and of new energy and life. It is also a great opportunity to freshen up the house, give everything a thorough cleaning and get ready for the new season.

#1 Spring Cleaning & Decluttering

Since we anticipate moving houses next year we are currently in the process of downsizing our belongings anyway. But I find spring a particularly suitable season for decluttering in general. You usually feel more energetic when the days are getting longer and the sun is visible more often. You will have to transition from your winter wardrobe to lighter clothing in the next couple of weeks/months anyway and store your coats – at least where I live. Take this opportunity to go through the rest of your stuff as well. A few intentional decorations will look a lot nicer in a less cluttered home.

Depending on the amount of things you own, pick one room a day or a week. After everything is sorted out and you have decided what you want to keep, donate, sell or trash, cleaning the house will be a lot easier. If you need some inspiration to get going with the decluttering process, here are three YouTube channels I like to watch whenever I need a boost of inspiration to get going:

#2 Spring Bulbs instead of Flowers

There is no time like spring and summer when one can feel the urge to decorate the house with flowers. I, too, really like the look of fresh flowers, but I don’t like the maintenance and waste aspect. If you have your own cut flower garden and a compost, great. However there are not a lot of flowers blooming this time of the year. Therefore I like to use flower bulbs instead. Not only can you plant them out in your garden after they are done blooming, you could also store them away and enjoy them in a plant pot again next year.

#3 Reuse your Old Decorations

If you like to change out your decorations for each season and festivity, you probably already own several pieces that are suitable for spring and Easter. Have a look at what you have and use those things instead of purchasing something new. If in doubt, err on the side of less decorations. A clutter-free room will simplify your cleaning and calm your mind.

#4 Dye Easter Eggs

Dyeing Easter eggs has been a tradition in my family since I can remember. I have dyed eggs with my mother as a child, later on with my sister and now I do it with my own children. This year I decided to experiment and see if I could dye eggs exclusively with products from my kitchen. The eggs you see on the picture are from last year and I used standard Easter egg dyes for them. If you are interested to see how my naturally dyed Easter eggs came out, stay tuned! The post is coming up soon.

#5 Make a Spring Wreath

Last year in September I made my own wreath from willow branches. It has been hanging on my front door ever since and I redecorate it for every season. The branches are now dried and have a beautiful brown color. For the spring version, I simply took a couple of pieces of ivy and eucalyptus from my garden and wove them loosely around the wreath.

#6 Get Creative

If you like to craft and make things yourself, there are a myriad of tutorials and ideas for Easter-related decorations. The spectrum ranges from baked goods to various fiber arts and decorations made simply out of paper. Especially if you have children, this is a great opportunity to create something that is fun to make and that you can enjoy as part of your décor.

In case you are looking for more inspiration, I have created a board on Pinterest with various different Easter and spring crafting projects. They all have in common that they are rather simple to make and are out of natural materials. You can find the board here:
