Easter is around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re already thinking about how to decorate your home festively. With so many options on the market, it’s tough to choose which decorations will make your home stand out from the rest. But have you considered using an Easter blanket as the centerpiece for your decoration? Let me tell you, an Easter blanket is versatile and can be used in many ways to bring that festive vibe. Are you ready for five charming Easter decorating ideas with an Easter blanket?
1. Use It as a Tablecloth:
Do you have some guests coming over for Easter brunch or dinner? Why not use your Easter blanket as a tablecloth? It’s unconventional yet creative; the pops of pastel colors will add a lovely touch of whimsy, making it effortlessly appealing! Don’t have a large enough Easter blanket to cover your whole dining table? Fear not! You can still utilize it by placing it in the center of the table as a runner over a solid-colored tablecloth and letting it serve as the main focal point! If you have sewing prowess, you may even sew some lace or frills around the blanket to add flair to your tablescape.
2. Create a Quilted Wall Display:
Don’t just use any poster or photo frame for decorating. Instead, create a quilted wall display with festive images! It shall not only up the festive appeal but also increase the aesthetic quotient. All those cute little bunnies or chicks on your easter blanket deserve to be showcased proudly on your walls. Showcase some childhood pictures with fun easter memories alongside, and watch how quickly everyone gathers around just admiring them! You may even create a mood board for Easter with family pictures around the blanket and frame them all together after making a beautiful collage.
3. Make Pillows out of Your Blanket:
Wrap up boring old throw pillows that may no longer match your current color scheme with new covers made from sections cut from an easter blanket – sew through each layer at intervals to create seams needed before stuffing carefully (don’t forget cushion pads!). Not that you need the excuse of old throw pillows! You can always welcome jolly vibes to your home by simply changing furnishings as per festivities. A cute bunny on one cushion, a basket full of eggs on another pillow — you get the drift — mix and match to make your family and friends stare in admiration.
4. Create Unique Baskets That Stand Out:
It wouldn’t be Easter Without baskets, right? Use your blanket as a base while creating your basket. Start by lining the outside of your basket with pieces cut from your easter blanket – use staples or glue to attach them securely. Continue decorating with the ribbon, sparking tassels or sequins for that final touch! And do you know the best part of such a cushioned basket? Your Easter eggs will never break; later, you can use your basket as a bread basket for dinner parties.
5. Use Your Blanket As A Backdrop For Your Family Easter Pictures:
What better way to capture those fun memories than snapping family pictures on a gorgeous Easter-themed blanket? Utilize larger objects like large painted letters spelling out “EASTER” and place them strategically behind everyone for maximum effect! Ensure you make it fun; get everyone to pick their favorite bunny ears or flowers and decorate around the scene.
In conclusion, incorporating an Easter blanket into your decorations is an easy and affordable way to bring joy and festiveness into any space. It’s time to start thinking outside the box. Let’s make this year extra special using our one-of-a-kind Easter decorating ideas! Happy Easter!
