Easter decorating ideas can be so much fun but also a bit overwhelming. Today I am sharing some of the Easter decorating ideas that we are doing here in our home that involve little to no money and Easter candy.

My son loves the “Peeps” Easter chicks and bunnies so yesterday while he was at school, I created a fun arrangement of these little guys on our dining room table. Imagine his surprise when he got home from school and saw marshmallow bunnies and jelly beans all over the table where he does his homework.

This project simply cost $1.50 for a box of Peep bunnies and $2.50 for a bag of Jelly Beans. I used random spools of thread that I had from previous sewing projects, toothpicks and a hot glue gun.

I glued the smaller spools of thread to the scrap book paper (so they wouldn’t fall over) and stuffed a toothpick under the bunny and placed in the hole of the spool of thread. You can see below a placed the spool inside a candle votive and then placed the toothpicked marshmallow inside the spool of thread.
