Easter decorations made from natural materials
Beautiful inspirations and Easter crafts from nature
An Easter decoration made of natural materials not only looks stunning, it is also a sustainable alternative to plastic & Co. Here we show you how you can easily transform natural materials into beautiful decorations for Easter!
At Easter we bring nature into the house: Spring flowers, moss, eggs, Easter grass… Spring can make itself felt everywhere and bring color to our four walls. The nice thing about it: We often find most of the materials in our garden or in front of the front door. See for yourself what beautiful Easter decorations you can make from very simple natural materials.
Make eggs with microgreens
- White Eggs
- waterproof pen
- Cotton pad, cotton wool or kitchen paper
- Cress seed or other micro green seeds (organic)
- Googly eyes at will
- Big piece of bark
- Use a knife to cut off the top of the eggs or crack open one edge. Clean the eggs with water and some dish soap.
- Pat the outside of the eggs dry and draw a mouth and eyes on them or glue wiggle eyes on them.
- Place a cotton pad or paper towel inside the egg and sprinkle or sprinkle some water on it. Spread the seeds on it and spray it again with some water (but the seeds should not float).
- Place the eggshells in an egg carton in a warm and sunny spot. The cress or microgreens begin to germinate a short time later and must always be kept moist. After five or six days, the fresh seedlings are quite large. Now all you have to do is place them on a tree bark and you have your Easter decoration, which is even edible.
Easter decoration with spring flowers
This Easter decoration is as simple as it is effective. Cut off the upper part of the eggs and then rinse them well under running water with a little dish soap. Tip: Make delicious scrambled eggs directly from the eggs or use them if you want to make eggnog yourself. Put the eggs in an egg carton or egg cup, fill them with some water and decorate them with fresh spring flowers.
Make Easter decorations for the Easter bouquet
For this Easter decoration you also need washed-out eggshells that are still intact. Attach some natural yarn to the egg with hot glue. Hang the eggs on a bouquet and put gypsophila inside. Do not fill in water, this will make the eggs too heavy.
Easter decoration with egg box and natural materials
- quail eggs
- Small candle wicks, wax or wax residues (alternatively, tea lights without aluminum casing)
- egg pack
- Hot glue as needed
Cleaned eggshells are also needed here. You can either place tea lights inside without an aluminum cover or fill the eggs with wick and candle wax yourself. Here’s how to pour candles. Then you arrange the smaller branches, the egg candles, quail eggs, feathers and fresh flowers in an egg pack. You can use hot glue to keep the twigs in place.
Make an Easter wreath out of natural materials
- Straw or hay, craft wire (alternatively straw Romans from the trade)
- hot glue
- quail eggs
Note on Moss: Upholstery moss and other types of moss are commercially available. For private use, moss is allowed in smaller amounts can also be taken from the forest. One Exceptions apply to nature reserves and generally to plants that are classified as “special species protection”. stand, such as B. peat moss species, grove moss and white moss. Therefore, inform yourself well beforehand and if you are unsure, it is better to use the moss from the trade, since moss generally makes a significant contribution to the forest ecosystem.
Tie a straw Roman with plenty of straw and craft wire. Then glue moss to the straw Roman with hot glue. Then fill some straw or hay in the middle of the wreath and put boiled Easter eggs, quail eggs and feathers in it – and the table decoration for Easter is ready. To keep the moss fresh, spray it with a little water from time to time.
Make an Easter bowl with candles
- flat bowl
- if necessary foil
- quail eggs
- Candle wick, wax or leftover wax (alternatively small tea lights without aluminum cover)
- hot glue
The moss for this Easter decoration should be kept moist so that it looks fresh and green for a long time. The material of the shell can be attacked by the humidity. Therefore, spread out a piece of foil in the bowl and spread the moss over it (note the instructions for removing moss in the paragraph above). Use cleaned egg shells and either place small tea lights in them or make candles yourself with wick and wax (reading tip: Pouring candles). Glue the egg candles to the moss with hot glue and then distribute a few more quail eggs on the Easter decoration. Mist the moss with a little water every few days.
