Easter sure did “spring” up on us didn’t it?! Yes, I am oober cheesy these days…not sure why exactly! It doesn’t really feel like Easter should be a week a way because it just snowed about a foot here yesterday and is still snowing!! Hello?! I thought it was Spring now? Did someone forget to forward the memo to Mother Nature?!? I think so! Anyway, I made these really cute blooming Easter eggs for my Spring Mantel to get more in the holiday spirit!
I kept décor for Easter/Spring this year really simple and these guys were just that. I bought some flowers from Dollar Tree and some large paper mache eggs from Hobby Lobby (on sale), added a bit of hot glue and some patience and voila! Perch them on top of some candle sticks and you have décor!
These are so easy to make! I chose white flowers only because they had the most white flower blooms at the store. They also had pink, purple and a lovely blue/violet color as well!
Supplies Needed for Blooming Easter Egg Decor:
- 12 stems of small blooms of fake flowers
- 2 Large paper mache eggs
- Hot glue/glue gun
- Candle Stick Holders
Start by snipping the blooms from the stems. Next start at the top of the egg and hot glue a bloom on. Then circle the next layer around the single top bloom.
Continue on until you have filled the whole egg. Note: Apply in a circular motion around the egg top to bottom versus filling one side and moving left to right. The coverage is better if you just do circles around the whole egg.
