Easy Easter Centerpiece

Last weekend I started pulling out some Easter decorations. I decided to recreate an Easter basket centerpiece that I did last year. My inspiration for this was from a display I saw in Pottery Barn while I was in Atlanta. They used a large basket with huge branches and small eggs hanging that spelled Happy Easter. I knew it would be something easy for me to mimic at home.

You will need:

  • a basket
  • a Styrofoam block
  • some moss
  • floral branches
  • decorative eggs
  • little hanging eggs or Easter ornaments

TIP: All of these items can be found at a craft store.

First take the Styrofoam and fit it snuggly in the basket.

Then arrange the branches in the Styrofoam. Depending on the weight of your hanging items, the branches may drop a little.

Then cover the Styrofoam with the moss. If you have a few gaps, don’t worry about it, you can cover it up later with eggs or some flowers from your branches.

Now just start hanging eggs and ornaments from your branches and cover the moss with a few eggs.  

How cute are these little ornaments! You can find ones like these at Pier One.

       

The chick with the tutu is my favorite!

       

The finished product will look like this.

What Easter decorations are you doing this year?

If you decide to try this centerpiece, please share your pictures, I’d love to see how it turns out.
