One easy way to decorate for Easter is to hang a wreath on your front door. There are lots of different ways to make a wreath, and you can use whatever materials you have on hand or peruse the dollar store to get inspired. For example, you could use artificial flowers, colorful eggs, tulle, or carrots crafted out of yarn.
Another option is to make a wreath out of Easter candy. Grab a foam wreath base from the craft store and use hot glue to attach hard candies (avoid chocolate in case it gets warm!). Be sure to add a bow or some other type of decoration to finish it off.
