How To Make An Easter Egg Centerpiece
For a couple days, I’d collected the eggs that we used for breakfast. I’d just lightly tap the top of each egg with a knife until they cracked. Then I peeled the top off, leaving a hole just big enough for flowers to fit. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. You won’t see the imperfections once you add the flowers. After two days of making breakfast for the fam, I had enough eggs for our centerpiece.
Next I colored the eggs by combining 1/2 cup of water with a teaspoon of vinegar, then added food coloring to get the colors that I wanted. Once they were dry, the eggs were ready to assemble.
I used hot glue to attach three eggs together for the base, with the holes tilted slightly up. Next I started adding more eggs, one at a time. As you hot glue the eggs, be sure not to push together too hard or your shell may crack.
I added eggs going up at different angles. There’s no right or wrong way, just be sure that they are balanced so that your centerpiece doesn’t topple over.
Let the hot glue dry before adding another egg.
Keep going until you’ve used all eight eggs. If for some reason your centerpiece is wobbly, you can always add one more egg to balance it out.
Now all you need are flowers and the lighter, the better. Heavy flowers like roses will crack the eggs but this baby’s breath was perfect and the grocery store had a big bouquet for under $5. I didn’t put water in the eggs and the baby’s breath still lasted for a couple of days. When it started looking a little sad, I just threw it away and added more sprigs from the bouquet, which I had in a separate vase full of water.
Since the eggs are already so colorful, I love how the white flowers balance it out. This is going to look so pretty on my Easter table and I’m already using it as Easter decor on my breakfast bar.
