Use pretty paper flowers and wood eggs to create a colorful centerpiece that can be used year after year.

Here’s an easy to make project idea for a centerpiece that is fun to create and will last a long time!  While I love fresh flowers, they wilt and fade much too soon in my opinion.  To combat that problem,  I used pretty paper flowers and wood eggs to create a colorful centerpiece that can be used year after year.

Supplies Used:

Step one:  Paint the eggs various colors.  I used a light turquoise color, two shades of purple (one light and one dark) and cheery yellow.

Step two:  Dilute brown paint with water (approximately 1 part paint to 1 part water).  Use a large brush to splatter the color onto the eggs.  I highly recommend doing this outside, and placing the eggs in a box!  The paint WILL get everywhere!  I used an old shoe box to keep the mess contained.

My kids love to play with these “eggs”, and I don’t mind at all because they aren’t fragile…since they’re wood they’re perfect for little hands.  This would be a great family craft project if you want to do something a little different from traditional egg dying!

This year I’m decorating with a purple/blue/yellow combination.  I just love these colors together!  This centerpiece would look pretty with bright colors, like pink and yellow, or even just using one color for everything and keeping it very monochromatic. This arrangement would also look cute in a metal or wicker basket.  Have fun crafting and creating for Easter!
