There’s a lot to do to get ready for Easter. You have to decorate your eggs, plan Easter egg hunts and decide on an Easter menu. If you’re hosting Easter dinner, you’ll want to make sure the table looks nice too but who has time to come up with an elaborate tablescape? That’s why this Easter egg centerpiece is so perfect. It’s so pretty that it looks like you put a lot of effort into it. Nobody ever has to know just how easy  it really was!

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.

It's easy to turn eggs into a beautiful Easter egg centerpiece

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.

Glue three eggs together to form the base of the Easter egg centerpiece

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.

Slowly add eggs one by one

Let the hot glue dry before adding another egg.

Be sure your Easter egg centerpiece stays balanced as you add more eggs

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.

After about eight eggs, your centerpiece should be finished.

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.

Add flowers to finish off your Easter egg centerpiece

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.

This centerpiece would look beautiful on any Easter table
