No, it’s not as sophisticated as fresh flowers, and no, it’s not as striking as a hundred other things you could do yourself. However, no matter their age, your kiddos will think this homemade DIY Easter egg centerpiece absolutely perfect, especially if you let them help. And the good thing is that it will cost you about $10.00!
2. Easter Grass
3. Plastic Eggs
4. Lollipop Sticks
5. Don’t forget the camera for a photo of the kids and their project!
I actually intended to use a cute Easter basket (0ne without a handle) for the base; however, I was really short on time and used a vase simply because it took less eggs to fill. If you have the time and the kid power, a basket might be perfect for your display but you will need a piece of styrofoam to anchor your sticks. You might also want to place robin eggs or your kiddos favorite type of Easter candy (around the bottom of the sticks) if you use a basket.
I actually bought styrofoam to use as an anchor for the sticks and then realized that the Easter grass in a vase would hold them on its own. Also my eggs only had an indention on their bottoms, not the usual hole so I used an ice pick to push on it until I had a hole. Obviously, I did not let the kids do this!
1. Stuff vase with grass.
2. If your eggs don’t have the hole pushed through on the bottom, do so.
3. Carefully push lollipop sticks or wooden skewers through the hole in the egg.
4. Begin arranging eggs in the vase. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, and your kiddos will enjoy doing it themselves.
5. We took our photo early enough that you could see it, and we placed plastic eggs around the base. However, when we set the table, we will use candy on the base as well, probably robin eggs, jelly beans, etc…
