Looking for a fast and easy way to bring some rustic Easter decorations to your home? You’ll love how easy it is to make this natural Easter decor with spring bulbs and easter eggs.
How can it already be almost Easter?
This year is speeding by and I already feel as if I am falling behind.
With all that is on my plate, I knew that my Easter decorating would have to be simple, easy, and quick.
And if I could make my Easter decor morph into spring decor easily that would be a big bonus because it would make me feel on top of things again.
So I set myself a little challenge to create a little DIY Easter centerpiece with things I could buy at the grocery store and that I already had. And it had to be completed from start to finish in under 30 minutes.
This cute planter centerpiece was the result.
Want to see how easy it is to make one? Then let’s go!
How to Make Rustic Easter Decor (with spring bulbs flowers)
There are only a few steps to make this natural Easter decoration. This easy DIY Easter centerpiece doesn’t only look pretty but it lasts a really long time.
And when you are done you can plant the bulbs outside and enjoy your bulb flowers for many more spring seasons. (go to this page for tips on what to do with bulbs after flowering).
<strong>5 Easy Steps for Making Rustic Easter Decor</strong>
Total Time: 30 minutes
For this pretty natural easter decoration you will need:
* Pots with spring bulbs
* Shallow container like a dish or bowl
* Stones, gravel or clay pellets or sand
* Potting soil
* Decorations like: branches, ivy leaves, tiny Easter eggs, quail eggs
Prepare Your Planter with a Drainage Layer
Add a layer of drainage material to your bowl. I used stones because I had them from a previous project. You could also use gravel, clay pallets, or even sand. Adding a drainage layer to your planter will help keep the soil moist and prevent your spring bulbs from drying out too soon.
Add Your Spring Bulbs to the Planter
Remove your spring bulbs from their little pots and place them on the drainage layer. Add potting soil around the bulbs until all the roots are covered.
Make sure all the bulb flowers are standing straight.
Cover the Soil with Moss
To prevent the soil from drying out, and to make your spring bulb planter look pretty add a layer of moss over the potting soil.
You don’t need a lot of moss for this step, a thin layer is enough as long as it covers the soil.
Add Decorative Touches to Your Natural Easter Decoration
I wanted a rustic Easter decoration so I opted to use natural decorations to finish my spring bulb planter.
With metal U hooks I added a few ivy stems around the bowl to give it a finished look. And as a final step, I scattered a few tiny Easter eggs in the planter.
Natural Easter Decoration
I love how my rustic Easter decor turned out. Using natural materials like real flowers, moss, and ivy leaves, gives it a beautifully rustic and natural look. The tiny quail eggs are just the perfect finish for this all natural easter decor.
I prefer decorating with natural and rustic materials. Using what I have or what I can easily scavenge in my garden or in the field and woods around my home.
This 30 minute Easter decor ticked all my boxes. It was so easy to make, it will last very well until after Easter and will look just as good as a spring decoration (I will put the Easter bunny in the background away then), and the spring bulbs can be replanted in my garden and will continue flowering there for many years.

Another easy Easter decoration that has a rustic and natural look was the one I made with two ceramic Easter bunnies from the thrift store that got a makeover.
Yeah, that was super cute too.
But today is all about this year’s rustic Easter decor.
If you love the look then you would do me a great pleasure by sharing and pinning this post.
Do you love the rustic look? Prefer natural decorations too?
Or are you more of the pretty and refined look when it comes to Easter decorating?
