Easter is right around the corner and we are getting crafty around here! Today we’re showing you how to make an egg-travagant Easter centerpiece! This project is easy and only calls for 7 items.
What You Will Need
Spray Paint – Here we have the Chalked spray paint that gives the perfect egg texture. We have a creamy white, robin egg blue, as well as a terracotta brown. You can switch up your colors if you’d like to maybe a pink or yellow!
Step One: Paint Time
Since it is zero fun to watch paint dry let’s knock this out first. The three colors we have chosen are all inspired by real egg colors. So, now you could take the time to build a fancy spray booth for these eggs, that way they are easier to paint and not smudge. However…we grabbed a cardboard box and headed to the outdoors. To get the eggs from rolling around on the flat box, press them into the cardboard to make an indention. Viola! Paint time! Another key point is that eggs have blemishes too…not every eggshell is smooth, so it is okay for a line or a spec to happen.
Step Two: Flowers and Greenery
Next, is time to really picture how much greenery and flowers you want to put into the serving bowl. When Easter comes to mind, I picture spring…green grass, flowers blooming, and pops of color all around. With that said, we really attempted to incorporate that into the serving bowl. Furthermore, we also took this time to fluff some of the flowers, take leaves and flowers off of the stems, if you are going to use them in the container, and curl our curly willow branches.
Step 3: Easter Egg-citing Placements
After the eggs are dry, it is time to place them into the serving bowl. Now, you can leave the bottom of the bowl bare and begin to stack the eggs into the container, or similarly add in the leaves on the bottom to add some under color and filler. To really compliment each color, we tried not to double up on the colors (no color touching the same color), but in the end, it is all about what appeals to the eye. While stacking in the eggs, throughout the container we placed some smaller flowers and greenery because we wanted that earthy look to it.
Final Steps to Easter Centerpiece
Lastly, we are placing our height pieces. The poppies and curly willow branches are securely tucked in-between eggs. With this in mind, try to hide as much of the stem with eggs and more greenery. We suggest this because it can take away from the centerpiece’s eye-catching ability. With attention to the eggs, try and set this centerpiece where it will be displayed and give it a once over. Making sure that there are enough color balance and volume. Hoppy Easter friends!
