About two weeks before the Easter season is a good time to start decorating your home.

Many of us associate spring with Easter like we associate winter with Christmas. The best time to start decorating for spring is about three to four weeks before Easter.

Never miss the chance to decorate your garden fence idea with Easter eggs or bunny garlands. You can create these garlands yourself, even better with the kids!


Cut egg or bunny shapes out of paper, string them using thread and attach them to the fence. Add colourful ribbons for a pop of colour.

For this, you need ribbons, scissors, and hot glue.


Cut a 20" piece of thin ribbon and attach the midpoint of the ribbon to the bottom of the egg. Using hot glue, wrap the ribbon around the egg and attach the end to the top.


Let it dry, then tie the eggs onto the branches and trim excess ribbon.
