After the Holiday season ends and the Christmas decorations come down we feel like dressing up the house a bit for Easter and Spring. We used to keep it simple with the magnets shown below but recently started adding lighted window silhouettes. Where we live there are still a few hours of darkness in the evening to allow that.
After researching various decorating ideas we chose the ones that are both easy to implement and still look great. We hope you find them appealing as well.
Here is our list of the best easy Easter and Spring decoration ideas. We also include links to specific products on Amazon to illustrate them. We are happy to help you make your search easy.
1. Lighted Easter window decorations
We see lighted window decorations occasionally in local stores but they are mostly for Christmas. It is best to buy them locally. When this is not an option Amazon offers a few choices.

Typically, these window decorations come with short cords. If you have large double windows and want to string two together you may need to use a short extension cord. Luckily, there are 3-feet extension cords on the market which reduce the clutter significantly. They are available in white and tan colors.
2. Easter and Spring garage door magnets
If you have metal garage doors these magnets are great and easy decoration. The best ones are offered by Collections Etc. They sell magnets for other occasions as well. You can see them all on Amazon.
You should’t keep these magnets on your garage for a long time, though. The sun in the spring is too strong and they will fade if kept out for months. They are fine for a reasonable amount of time (2 – 3 weeks).
Couple of years ago we bought the Easter Bunnies and Eggs refrigerator magnet set and put it on the front door. We kept it for a long time and at some point in the middle of the summer noticed that it had faded. We know better now.
These magnets are of very good quality with magnetic backing all throughout. They do not interfere with opening and closing of garage doors.
Be careful with other sources of garage magnets because some of them require gluing magnets on the back of the decorations, while others marketed as garage door magnets are actually decals.
3. Easter dishwasher covers and refrigerator magnets
For Easter Collections Etc. offer one cute dishwasher art cover (the first one below) which comes in two sizes. They also offer a matching refrigerator magnet set.
The last two dishwasher covers are by different vendors.
It is such a fun to set up the magnets and in no time the kitchen is dressed up for the season. We keep these magnets for much longer than the outdoor ones. We basically change them when it is time for the next ones.
If you like the idea of dishwasher covers there are many generic ones in addition to the seasonal.
Since we have a few dishwasher covers, we store those out of season on a refrigerator downstairs. Another cool place to put them are the washer and dryer.
4. Easter and Spring mailbox covers
There are many adorable mailbox covers for Spring and Easter. They come in two styles. The ones labeled as MailWrap (or just Wrap) attach securely with a strong magnetic strip along each side of the cover. The ones listed as Magnetic are usually with full magnetic backing. If you have a preference make sure your read the descriptions. Also pay attention to the sizing as some covers are made for oversized mailboxes.
We list a few here to get you started. Matching garden flags are sold for some of the covers as well.
See all Easter mailbox covers on Amazon.
There are also seasonal individual magnets for each side of the mailbox if you prefer that.
5. Easter garden stakes
The bunny greeters are sold separately (although they appear together in the pictures). We included links to both the male and female bunny greeters.
These garden stakes are made of metal. But just like everything else they will fade if kept too long in the sun.
6. Easter and Spring garden spinners
These spinners are made out of durable UV resistant nylon and are fairly large. They are reasonably fade resistant and will last for years if not left out year round.
There are more bicycle garden spinners available.
7. Easter and Spring garden flag banners
These yard flags are 7 feet tall. They are not huge but just large enough to make for a nice garden display. They are also called feather flags or feather banners.
