The majority of decorating enthusiasts view the indoors as the traditional palette for adding accessories and accents to any home. However, the outdoors can be just as fun as the indoors, with a little creativity and imagination, often requiring little or no work. Here are some interesting and fairly inexpensive ideas for decorating your yard for the Easter celebration season:
Flags and banners. These are a great way to personalize and express individuality in your yard. You can choose to hang them from your porch or use a flagpole in your yard to add an Easter or spring themed flag or banner. For a more creative approach, use your mailbox as a flagpole or hanger for your banner. In addition, it is simple to change the flag for new holidays and seasons, without requiring much work or expense, and flags can be reused for many years.
Inflatables. Although some think that these are a cheesy addition to the yard, but they can be a fun way to decorate for the Easter holiday. Most retailers offer a wide variety of inflatables, from bunnies or chicks to large crosses or similar themes for the Easter celebration.
Cutouts. Another interesting craft project or pre-made yard decoration, cutouts can be purchased in a wide variety of kits and patterns. There are dozens of projects to choose from, at retailers online or in more traditional stores, including many craft stores. Some do it yourself projects may take some work to complete, but most are simple to construct, and many come with easy instructions.
Lawn stakes. These are some of the simplest ways to decorate your yard for Easter. Simply push the stake into the yard in the desired location, or use a mallet with a softer tip to tap the stake into place. There are a lot of unique designs to choose from, depending on your personal preference.
Lights. Add a unique touch with lights, and you can use your Christmas lights for this purpose if you wish. The best option is to create a theme with white or clear lights, although you can easily use a few strands of Easter-themed pastels or decorative lights for a cute way to personalize your Easter-themed yard.
Hanging decorations. If you have a porch or area set aside for hanging flower pots, you can opt for Easter themed decorations that hang. Most retailers offer slogans or quotes on flags or banners with an Easter theme. You could also choose hang a cute bunny windsock or a basket of spring flowers. Many people also make a tradition of hanging plastic colored Easter eggs in a bare branched tree to announce the arrival of Easter and spring.
There are a lot of ideas to use for creating an Easter theme in your yard, most of which are relatively inexpensive. Create something that is geared toward the friendly side of Easter, with bunnies, flowers, pastels, colored eggs, and similar artwork or décor. If you would prefer the more religious overtones often associated with the Easter celebration, choose crosses, stained glass, and lilies.
