Creative Ways to Decorate with Eggs

March 9th, 2015

Eggs are usually hidden for Easter Egg Hunts, but they are also excellent for adding color and variety to your spring décor. From a sophisticated tabletop decor to a colorful Easter tree, here are five creative ways to spruce up your home with eggs.

Rustic Wreath with Colorful Egg Ornaments


I can’t think of a better way to welcome guests to your home than with festive spring wreath. Think “colorful bird’s nest” when coming up with a DIY wreath for your front porch. Choose a woodsy outdoor wreath without any trims, so you can easily add faux wooden eggs all over. I love the muted greens and blues used in this wreath—they remind me of a robin’s nest and pair well with a burlap ribbon. But, definitely choose whatever spring colors coordinate with your front door.
