Easter Decor On A Dime: My $7 Centerpiece

Can you believe Easter is just 23 days away? (Yikes!) I’m so excited, because for the first time since my father-in-law became ill in 2009, everyone (everyone) on my husband’s side of the family is coming to our house to celebrate Easter. Of course I’m getting a little excited, planning my menu, and doing a little penny pinched fluffing around my house!

 

Now, I’m not one to decorate much for Holidays other than Christmas, but did want to at least come up with a fun centerpiece. So, I started thinking about the glass jars I’d used in the fall to decorate with, and decided to change the popcorn out to jellybeans for the Spring. If I can find some inexpensive daisies right before Easter I’ll switch the candles out to those, but in the meantime the candles work just fine!

 

Here’s what I used:

  • Pink polka dot ribbon $2 at Walmart
  • 4 bags Jelly Beans $1 per bag at Walmart
  • Pink “grass” $1 at the Dollar Tree
  • Glass votives and jars that I purchased at the Dollar Tree in the fall
  • Large white platter we received as a wedding present (we’ve had it for almost 17 years …. I’m getting old fast!)
(Note: the jelly beans are perfect because they taste just awful. . . my kids all tried to sneak a few and then hunted me down to inform me they were disgusting. That’s good news, because otherwise my centerpiece would get eaten long before Easter! Word to the wise: when decorating with candy, make sure it tastes horrible.) 😉

 

Do you have any cans of free Muir Glen sauce you have hiding in the pantry? They’re perfect to fill up your jars so you don’t waste too many jelly beans . . .

And here’s the only other Easter decor I have . . . I found these guys at Hobby Lobby on clearance a few years ago and just loved them!

Looking for a few more Easter ideas? Here are a few of my favorites:

And of course, you’ll want to make some of our favorite Resurrection Rolls (yum, yum, yum!)

I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
