5 easy Easter touches

Spend time making Easter extra special this year, with these easy ideas…

* Hang painted eggs and decorations from a branch suspended above your dining table, weaving in strands of ivy and spring blossom.

* Wrap large chocolate eggs in fabric, tying at the top and adding a hand-stamped name tag for the lucky recipient.

* Part-dip blown eggs into emulsion paint (duck eggs look best), then suspend to dry, before adding ribbon bows.

* Go to town with paper decorations –chains, honeycomb balls and crêpe paper flowers add colour and spring style.

* Organise an egg hunt, handing out painted buckets, baskets trimmed with ribbon or decorated fabric tote bags for the goodies
