Easter Egg Centrepiece

Easter Centrepiece

It’s Good Friday today and I promised my daughter we could do some Easter craft. I bought a few things from the craft store last week not really knowing what I was going to make but when I got it all out I decided on a table centre piece.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1. 6 x foam eggs

2. 12 x skewers

3. Paint in colours of your choice. We choose pink of course.

4. Glitter of your choice. Again we choose pink.

5. Paint brushes

6. Shredded tissue paper

7. Ribbon

8. Glass or vase

Firstly, insert a skewer into each egg. Then paint. You may need two coats. Then sprinkle glitter all over the wet paint on the eggs. Place eggs in the vase on the skewer to dry.

Once dry put some clean skewers in the eggs and place them in the vase. Put some ribbon around each skewer and fill vase with tissue paper.

Didn’t turn out too bad for a last minute thing. Looks nice on the table and as ours is pink would be cute on an afternoon tea table.

Hope you all have a great Easter!

When I was making some cupcakes this weekend I just had to make something for Easter.

I used a buttercake mix and one quantity of buttercream frosting http://www.bindy.com/buttercream-frosting/ I coloured the frosting green and using a grass piping tip piped some grass. I found some cute little Cadbury mini eggs and put them on top. So easy but look very cute.

Hope you all have a great Easter. I can’t wait this year. Our daughter’s hip spica cast is coming off on Thursday after six weeks. Will be great to see her little legs again and give her a cuddle without a big cast on.
