DIY: Artist Inspired Easter

via blogg Skonahem

This is always a full and crazy week for my family as we celebrate both Jewish and Christian holidays at our house. We have only just finished cleaning up after a big family passover seder (though I expect to continue to find trails of matzah cracker crumbs for a few more days) just in time to start pulling out our Easter decorations.  We usually have an Easter tree of quince branches hung with a few of our favorite homemade blown eggs that have been collected and saved over the years.

But this year I am in the mood for some new inspiration, so I started thinking about what if you grew up in the home of a great artist, say Bridget Riley, or Helen Frankenthaler and Robert Motherwell, or  Anni and Josef Albers, what would their Easter table look like?

Here are a few of those ideas played out with links to the DIY instructions on each.
