And if you’re looking for an alternative to those solid-color Easter eggs, consider these Easter egg decorating ideas from Country Living and the Squirrelly Minds blog.

1. Robin Eggs: Dye eggs a light blue, then use a fine-tipped paintbrush to paint brown splatters.

2. Lattice Eggs: Cut masking tape into thin strips, then crisscross over the eggs. Dye eggs as usual and remove the tape once dry.

3. Paint-Splatter Eggs: Fling different colors of paint at the eggs for a Pollock-style Easter decoration.

4. Sharpie Eggs: Use bright Sharpies to draw trendy designs on the eggs, like chevron stripes or ikat motifs.

5. Porcelain-Look Eggs: Boil eggs until almost hard in water tinted with dye. Remove the eggs and tap them with a spoon. Drop dye over the cracks to stain them further, then boil the eggs again until hard.

Flit into Spring with Hummingbird Home Decor

Have you had your first hummingbird sighting yet this year? What joy this little bird brings! First that low characteristic buzzing, then an iridescent flash of color, and finally a brief pit stop at your feeder before it zips back to its tree. Maybe you’ve even watched a male hummingbird dance and dive in a showy, acrobatic display to court the female hummingbird.

Even if it’s not hummingbird season where you live, you can delight in this marvelous avian creature whenever you like. Hummingbird decor in the form of wall art, table lamps, nightlights, and more will bring your favorite bird-watching memories to mind.

Where to Use Flameless Candles in Your Home

At the end of a hard day, the dancing flame of a fragrant candle will surely aid in relaxation. But if you have children or pets running about, or you’re simply concerned you’ll forget to extinguish the flame, a flameless candle is a great alternative. (Just make sure the candle plate doesn’t have a spike.) And you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite features of real candles, either. Many LED candles have a flickering flame that emulates candlelight, some with the added bonus of a timer. Scented flameless candles are perfect if you’re still craving a unique aroma, while LED drip candles have the look of melted wax.

Flameless candles are available in many colors and sizes, so you can find just the right candle or flameless candle set to accent your decor. Click here to view a variety of flameless candles.
