Easter Decor

Whether you’re religious or not, Easter is a lovely excuse to celebrate spring and also gives us a chance to decorate our homes and welcome in the new season. Easter decor typically includes elements that symbolise renewal, rebirth, and springtime.

There are plenty of ways to include these decorations in your home, including:

Decorated Eggs: These are perhaps the most iconic symbol of Easter. They can be painted, dyed, or decorated with stickers and designs.

Wreaths: Create a spring wreath using faux tulips. Or create an Easter-themed wreath decorated with eggs, flowers and ribbons.

Easter Baskets: Fill with treats like chocolate eggs, sweets, and small toys. They can also be adorned with ribbons, bows, and faux flowers.

Easter Bunnies and Chicks: Plush bunnies and chicks are popular decorations symbolising fertility and new life.

Spring Flowers: Fresh flowers like tulips, daffodils, and lilies are commonly used to decorate homes during Easter. Artificial flowers can also be used for longer-lasting decor.

Table Centerpieces: A decorative centerpiece for the Easter dinner table might include a basket filled with eggs, flowers, and greenery.

Easter Tree: Similar to a Christmas tree, an Easter tree can be decorated with hanging ornaments. Why not create some salt dough Easter ornaments?

Garlands and Easter Banners: If you don’t want to go to the effort of making an Easter banner like the one here, you can make a really pretty bunny Easter garland using the design I created a couple of years ago.

This Easter banner is made using our bunny png file.

Failing that, simple strings of pastel-coloured paper or fabric with Easter-themed shapes like eggs, bunnies, and chicks can be hung across mantels or walls.

Remember, Easter decor can be as simple or elaborate as you like, and personal touches can make it even more special.

Creating the Easter Banner Design

I really enjoyed creating this Easter banner design.

I joined a little group of creatives last summer and we have a monthly theme to design a print or cut file for scrapbooking or crafting.

We’ve had some lovely prompts already — America (I created a star-spangled banner heart). Space — where I created a free space SVG.

Plus a ‘farm’ prompt, where I designed a counting sheep decal.

Last month, I went back to my papercutting roots and created a Valentine SVG Papercut Template.

I really enjoyed designing this, so I have designed this Easter banner in a similar way.

Once I’d completed the design, initially, I cut the flags from paper — which looks really pretty and works well — but then I decided to cut the Easter banner out of heat transfer vinyl.

I’m really pleased with how it turned out!

How Can You Use the Easter Banner

There are so many uses for this free Easter Banner template. You can use the SVG or the PNG file. Personally, I prefer the PNG file as the background is transparent, and you can print it or just upload it to Cricut.

Simply print the design onto paper, thread onto string, then hang it up.

Or — if you have a cutting machine like a Cricut — you can cut the banners out of paper, as I’ve done here.

Or you can cut the design from heat transfer vinyl and create a fabric banner.

How To Use Your Free Easter Banner Template

If you’re using a Cricut machine, you can upload either the Easter banner file to Cricut Design Space, add to canvas, then resize the image to suit your project.

The PNG files are on a transparent background, so — if you want to create a papercut (as I have done here) it’s literally as easy as resizing to suit then, using the cut function to cut it out.

I’d found some cotton from another craft project and decided to make a fabric Easter banner. I cut the design from a really pretty Cornflower blue vinyl, then carefully weeded out the design.

Once it was done, I used my heat press to iron the vinyl shapes onto the cotton fabric.

Then I cut around the shapes.

If you were inclined to, you could do a better and more thorough job than me and hem the edges of your banner flags.

I think, if I was to do a project like this again, I probably would. But the day I made this project, my sewing machine wouldn’t play ball and the thought of hand-sewing all those edges was definitely not a pleasant one!!

For a quick and easy make, I’m pretty pleased with the end result, even with the frayed edges!

I’d found a pretty polkadot ribbon to sew on to the top edge of the pennants. But you could also cut the threading holes in the design and thread string through if you prefer.

Once I’d sewn the ribbon along the top edge, the Easter banner was ready to hang.

Easter decor can be quite costly so it’s lovely to be able to create something for the home so cheaply.

I think it would also be quite nice to create another banner using different pastel colours — but that’s for another day! Maybe next year.
