I'll be honest, Easter isn't my favorite holiday to decorate for. Something about pastel on pastel and bunnies and eggs and more pastel and more bunnies and.... I could go on and on.
This adorable (and, like, insanely easy) Easter project will keep you feeling the holiday spirit without making your dinner guests squirm while little porcelain bunnies watch them eat deviled eggs. (I'm getting a little uneasy just thinking about it... scroll all the way down to see for yourself!).
This little Easter centerpiece is sort of a combination of farmhouse and boho chic which makes it really versatile and super cute. If you want to make one for yourself, here is what you'll need:
- decorative pail (I'm pretty sure it's actually meant for candles)
- plastic easter eggs
- Diamondhard RePurpose in Golden Dandelion, Serenity, Olive, Ivory Flake, and Mocha
- decorative tassel trim (this pail is very small so I only used about 6-7")
- hot glue gun
- carboard box
How to make it:
- Start by painting the pail in Golden Dandelion. You can tape it if you want a straight line but (HINT!) I like using trim so it doesn't really matter whether or not it's straight. Let dry completely and re-coat.
- While the pail is drying, split plastic eggs in two and paint each half. You may need 2-3 coats on the eggs because they are hollow which allows more light to shine through the paint.
- After eggs are completely dry (and all coats have been applied), place halves in a cardboard box to avoid getting paint everywhere. Dip a small paint brush in mocha and use a flicking motion to "speckle" the eggs. Let dry completely.
- Once the pail is completely dry, use a hot glue gun to place tassel trim at the paint seam.
- Allow paint on eggs to "harden" for a few days to avoid the paint sticking together.
- Put your newly transformed eggs into the pail and add to the center of your dinner table. Watch as all your guests actually compliment your Easter decor instead of being paranoid that little porcelain bunnies will bite their fingers off!
IF YOUR GRANDMA DIDN'T HAVE 12 OF THESE IS SHE EVEN A GRANDMA?
