DIY Easter Egg Centerpiece
I had SO much fun making these!!!!
I first got the idea from a present I bought The Hubby for Valentine's Day. I got him one of those candy bouquets from Kroger. They had candy bars taped to skewers stuck down in styrofoam with deco mesh in a vase.
For the first one I did (the one on the right) I used the left over parts of that candy bouquet, the styrofoam and deco mesh.
Then I bought 2 bags of plastic eggs in 2 different sizes.
I also grabbed some floral wire and fabric scraps (obviously I decided to use some different scraps LOL).
The eggs I bought already had holes in the tops and bottoms. PERFECT!! Except the wire wanted to go all the way through. :/
I grabbed my trusty pal, the glue gun, and put a little hot glue on the inside of the tops of the eggs. Now they don't slip all the way down.
Then I just inserted the eggs on wires into the styrofoam (the deco mesh was already there).
Next, I set the whole thing in the middle of the scrap fabric.
Pull the fabric up around the sides. Gather it at the top and tie with ribbon.
Now, I did that one before I realized that they make eggs on sticks.... Really CUTE eggs on sticks.... SO when I saw those really cute eggs on sticks, I knew I had to make another one!!!!!
I bought 2 bags of eggs on sticks in 2 different sizes, deco mesh, bobby pins, paper grass stuff, a rectangle piece of floral foam, and those little eggs that I didn't use.
$6 for the stuff that I used!!! CHEAP!! Oh, yeah.. I got it all at the Dollar Tree. ;)
Cut a piece of deco mesh (the size is up to you) and twist the center. Secure that by pushing the bobby pin through it in a couple of places.
Insert into the floral foam.
Now, just stick in those really cute eggs on sticks!!!
Next, place the floral foam on your scrap fabric. Wrap the fabric and hot glue in place.
Bunch the top of the fabric around the top of the foam and tie the ribbon!!
ALL DONE!! Now you have some really cute Easter Egg centerpieces that will be irresistible to your cats! Trust me on that one. ;)
Oh, see those cute bunny ear candles??? A splurge from Yankee Candle. They were toooooo cute to pass up!!!
Oh, and that table runner???? Next week's tutorial!! ;)
So, what do you think???
Any questions??? Don't be afraid to ask!! I am not always as clear as I think I am in my instructions. ;)
