For some strange reason – I am possessed to decorate for Easter this year. Maybe it is all the great ideas I am seeing from you guys. Maybe it is all the baby hormones in my system. Either way – I decided to “color” some eggs and make a little centerpiece. What I came up with is below – the rest of the post is how we got there!
So for starters – I had these cardboard eggs that I picked up on clearance last year at Hobby Lobby after Easter. I figured plain ole eggs could be used in a multitude of projects. Who would have thought it would have taken me a year to do anything with them. Anyways – I just jabbed a bamboo skewer into the bottom of them and decided to paint them up.
I didn’t have the perfect pastel colors in my paint stash – but I did have some white paint that I used to “mellow” out some of my more vibrant colors. I went ahead and painted them and let them dry. Like what I am using to “weigh down” my little buckets? I tell you – when I craft – we get sophisticated! :)
So once they were dry – I arranged them ever so slightly more artistically in my little galvanized buckets (which I already had) and then topped them off with a little moss. And ta-da! Centerpiece!
They are like little egg topiaries! I just love em! I feel like they just really brighten up the whole space.
Sometimes – just the littlest bit of color can add all kinds of smiles to your day!
So what about you? Have any bright pops of color brightening your day? Anyone else have any crazy urges to decorate for Easter? I wanna know if it is just me!
