My head is kind of spinning that Easter is in less than 2 weeks! We just celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and the next day my mind shifted right to Easter baskets and spring decor.
I wanted to spruce up the table with a simple and rustic looking Easter Egg centrepiece. I put this together in less than an hour and only 6 or 7 glue gun burns! All of these supplies also came from the dollar store making it super affordable to put together.
To make a Rustic Easter Egg Centrepiece you will need:
- Twine or rope of your choice
- Plastic Eggs
- Glue gun and lots of glue sticks
- Easter grass
- Cake plate
Rev up your glue gun and start gluing twine around your plastic egg. For thinner rope, make a knot and glue that to the bottom of the egg and start wrapping. If your plastic egg is a bit on the flimsy side, glue it closed to give it more structure.
Wrap as many eggs as you like to fill your vessel. I like odd numbers for something like this so I went with 5.
If you have lots of stringy bits of glue, a hairdryer on warm will melt those away. Not too hot or too long or you will remelt the glue on your eggs.
When my eggs were complete I wrapped and glued a band of lace ribbon around the twine eggs to add some pretty interest. I decided against using a colour ribbon so I can change up the colours I use for the table and the eggs will always match.
To assemble your centrepiece, wrap a coloured ribbon around the plate and finish it off with a bow. This cake stand is from the dollar store so I glued the ribbon right the side to keep it secure. Fill the top with your Easter grass and place eggs on top.
I love this little project and I plan on making more eggs to tuck them into areas all over the house.
