Hi, friends! Today I am sharing my Easter egg centerpiece. A few weeks ago, when I made my trip to the dollar store, I found these adorable eggs on sticks. Of course, I had to have all sizes. They were just too cute! The Easter letters came from Wal-Mart.
The first thing I did was decorate this cute little planter from the dollar store.
I love the pretty spring colors, but it was so plain. So I added a few little details to it.
I shared in an earlier post that I was on a mission to try and use up some the items in my craft closet. I added the blue and pink ric rac using glue dots. The Easter letters are some more of the scrapbooking letters that I had left over from a Christmas project.
I added some floral foam I purchased at the dollar store. I love it when I can find the size I need for a dollar!!
My original plan was to paint or wrap the sticks with pipe cleaner. I decided it still needed something else besides the eggs. I tried a few spring flowers, but didn't really like the flowers that I had with the eggs.
I found this Monkey Grass at Hobby Lobby, and decided it was just what the arrangement needed.
I cut off about 4 pieces of the Monkey Grass, and then placed the large piece of grass in the center of the foam.
Then I placed the extra cut pieces around the edges of the foam to make it look fuller.
I placed the eggs throughout the grass.
To make some of the eggs taller, I wrapped floral wire on the end of the eggs before placing them in the foam. I also added the floral wire to the Easter letters to make them taller.
The Easter letters didn't have the sticks, so I used skewers to add them to the arrangement. I also add some of the little plastic flower fillers that I found at the dollar store to the base of the arrangement. I forgot to take a picture of those.
I love the greenery with the colorful eggs. I thought about trimming the grass down a bit, but I kind of like the wild look.
It's just what my little plant stand needed in the corner of my kitchen. I love the burst of spring colors. It's amazing what a splash of color will do for a room.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
