Easter Fabric Scrap Chair Ties

If you saw my Easter kitchen décor post on Monday, you may have noticed the fabric scrap chair ties. They were seriously my favorite part of this mini holiday makeover, plus they basically cost me only $6 to create!

There were 10 colors total in the fabric scrap roll so I just tied them onto the twine in a pattern using 2 sets for each chair (20 ties total).

10 Easter Table Setting Ideas on a Budget

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

With Easter Sunday just around the corner, I know you can spend a pretty penny on all of the festivities so today I’m trying to show you how you can dress up your Easter table on a budget!

1. Easter eggs
Nothing says a happy Easter table like some adorable eggs. Whether you choose some simple glittery eggs or something more extravagant like this Easter tree, you will definitely wow your guests at the table. Since the tree was $3 a piece from Dollar General, it’s probably the only addition I would make to an Easter table on a budget, but they’re great to reuse every year!

Add some extra pizzazz for next to nothing with free Easter printables like this subway art that you can frame and place on the table.

3. Chargers 
I’m a huge fan of plate chargers. They really spruce up your place settings, especially if you have just plain white dishes. I picked up 12 gold chargers from Dollar General for $1 each. I used these for Thanksgiving and Christmas as well!

Most people think about pastel colors when decorating for Easter, but you can really impress your guests with some metallic trends. These really add some glam to the table!

5. Sweet Treats 
Instead of an Easter egg or bunny on each plate, think about a sweet treat as another option. I found some adorably decorated sugar cookies at Dollar General for only $1 each.

6. Textiles 
You can make any plain table look dressed with a new tablecloth, placemats, or table runner. Or if you want to really impress, try mixing your textiles. Different textures and patterns can really work together and don’t have to cost an arm and a leg.

7. Kid Friendly Tables
To protect your table and the impeding messes, cover the kids table in a plastic tablecloth (like the one above for $3). Think about fun and festive paper napkins and paper plates for the kids too. 

8. Ceramic Bunnies or Chicks
I picked up this adorable bunny from the garden section at Dollar General for $1. How cute to have one of these sitting on each dinner plate at the beginning of dinner?

9. Flowers
If you only have enough money for one decorative item on your Easter table, I would invest in flowers. Simple and understated. You can even purchase fake flowers and make a centerpiece that you can use year after year.

10. Decorative Spray 
I quickly fell in love with this little bunny spray from Dollar General. And she was only $1, crazy right? Not too shabby for $1 a place setting! Plus you can reuse them every year (or make a fun wreath or centerpiece when you’re done with them for next year!).

 So do you have any budget friendly Easter decor ideas? 
Are you hosting this year? Do you decorate your table?
