VINTAGE FRONTIER

Where every piece of junk has endless possibilities!

DIY Easter Egg Centerpiece

Decorate for Easter, or just for Spring, with these fun centerpiece. They bring a fun fresh feeling to any space. Use any container you have available; a vintage cheese box, an unused cake stand, even just a nice white plate would work. My dear friend Steph, from over at Sustainingthepowers.com, came over and helped me with these beauties! And took all these wonderful pictures.

A fun way to add some spring to any room.

DIY Painted Robins Eggs for Easter

Tools you’ll need are simple; Cardboard or wooden Easter Eggs, paint brushes and paint sponges, fake grass (you can use the real stuff if you plan ahead and grow some, filler (we used a cardboard egg carton cut into pieces, you could also use floral foam), raffia, craft paint (these are a combination of light blue, a darker blue, pastel yellow, mint green and brown).

To start off paint your Easter Eggs with the paint sponge. For a more natural feel we mixed a lot of different colors. When the base color are dry, dip the paint brush (or an old tooth brush) in the brown paint and use your thumb to splatter (what a technical term) the paint all over the eggs. We put the eggs in an open card board box to minimize making a mess and also wore a plastic gloves.

A little filler and some fake grass are a nice bed for Easter eggs

While your eggs dry  get your vessel ready. If you are using a cheese box or vessel that is a deeper take your filler (weather its floral foam, old newspaper, or cut up egg cartons) and fill in the bottom. Then cut your grass to size and place on top of the filler. When your eggs are dry just arrange them in the grass.

If you use a cake stand or other flat surface, use raffia to create a nest, it helps if you moisten the raffia first, it becomes a little more pliable. You can add fresh flowers or fake flowers to add more color. We used some cherry blossom stems from a tree in my yard. They didn’t last long so if you want them to stand the test of time I recommend using some fake flowers.

All ready for an Easter Celebration.
