    When we think of spring, most people are reminded of things like bunnies, birds, flowers, and colorful eggs.  Decorating with items like this breathes new life into our homes after winter ends, and is also cheerful and kid-friendly.  Since, after all, Easter is a Christian holiday, you may decide that you would like to decorate with one or two home accessories that reflect your faith.  Take a cue from these bloggers, who have crafted their own religious Easter accessories using symbols of faith...MORE such as crosses and scripture.

    Terrariums made with ferns or succulents are trendy right now, and it's easy to make your own.  If you already have one, simply insert a wooden cross for an homage to Easter, or create one from scratch using moss and a glass hurricane. (Hurricanes are often available at the dollar store, making this another inexpensive DIY accessory.)
