There are no better signs of warmer weather than beautiful blossoms and high-flying butterflies. Use the faux variety to embellish a bamboo basket, and fill with floral, speckled, and bunny-inspired eggs for added whimsy.
Use a craft knife to cut a 2″ x 2″ oval into 4″ eggs. Apply one to two coats of paint to the 4″ and 2″ eggs; let dry. Stuff 4″ eggs with tissue paper, then place all eggs inside cardboard box. In small bowl, mix a few drops of water with a dollop of paint, then dip the toothbrush bristles in and use your thumb to fleck the paint onto the eggs to create speckles. Once dry, repeat for the reverse side of the eggs. Place floral foam inside the flower bucket and arrange sprays inside. Use brown floral tape to attach two sprays together to create height as needed. Hot-glue a small loop of ribbon to the top of the eggs and hang from spray branches. Arrange Easter grass inside 4″ eggs, then add cookies.
To make the basket, cut a 15″ x 2″ for the sides of the basket and a 9″ x ⅝” strip for the handle. Soak these strips in a pan of water for at least 10 minutes. Remove from water and while still wet, use a steamer (or the steam button on an iron) to apply steam to the balsa wood strips as you gently bend them into shape (this will prevent kinks and cracks in the wood). Bring the short ends of the bigger strip together to form a 3″ x 5″ oval and create an arch with the smaller strip. Use clothespins to hold the ends of the side strip together and to hold the handle strip to the center of each of the longer oval sides; let dry completely (about 2 to 3 hours). Remove clothespins and hot-glue the pieces in place. To make the bottom of your basket, trace the inside of the oval onto a balsa wood sheet, cut out and hot-glue to the sides of the basket along the inside edge. Embellish the outside with velvet ribbon, scrapbooking flowers, paper tags, and more. For the chicks, dip doughnut holes in melted white chocolate, roll them in nonpareils, then add sprinkle eyes and a gummy candy beak.
To make this centerpiece, empty eggs by carefully cracking a small hole (about ¾” across) in the pointy end of each egg; rinse out. Choose to dye the eggshells, decorate them or leave them plain. Place eggshells in a ceramic egg crate, or the bottom half of a cardboard or clear plastic egg carton. Then, fill each halfway with water and stick in cut flowers.
1. Dye or paint eggs; let dry completely.
2. Use a foam brush to paint abstract splotches of glue from the Mona Lisa Metal Leaf Starter Kit on the eggs; let dry according to package instructions.
3. Apply the gold leaf from the kit to the sticky areas (the glue is tacky when it dries) and smooth down with your fingers.
4. Use a stiff-bristled brush to sweep away any gold leaf around the egg where there was no adhesive.
Celebrate Easter and the arrival of spring with a cute and sweet DIY project.
Feather your nest with topiaries made from paper napkin-covered plastic eggs glued onto Easter grass-covered Styrofoam cones.
1. Arrange medium whitewashed wood trays down the middle of your table. Cut through wheatgrass (available at most nurseries) with scissors so it fits inside each tray.
2. Push the stems of cut flowers into floral water picks filled with tap water, then nestle the plastic tubes into the grass.
3. For extra color, place a few dyed eggs around the perimeter as shown.
Put that old nail polish to good use, and watch your eggs become stained with the prettiest hues. Don’t eat these ones, though!
