Today I am sharing an Easter Egg Centerpiece as part of the Easter Crafts and Decor Showcase. I hope you enjoy and take time to look at the other great posts shared in the showcase.
I am feeling a little old school with this Easter craft. My grandma Grandma Margaret, who I am named after, passed away before I was ever born. My father doesn’t own a lot of things that belonged to her, but he does have some gorgeous Christmas ornaments that she made. Tons of individually pinned sequins and gorgeous embellishments fill our Christmas tree year after year. I used to sit in front of the tree at night and watch how the lights bounced off the sequins, giving the tree a little extra glow. They are really beautiful and a favored treasure among my family. For some reason, when I was thinking about what I wanted to make for an Easter centerpiece, sequins popped into my head and stuck. Therefore, here is my Easter Egg Centerpiece – individually pinned sequins and all.
Paper Mache Eggs
Paint colors of choice
The process is easy, though you will most likely prick yourself a couple times with these small pins like I did. Put the pin through the sequin hole so the curve of the sequin will be down against the egg. Push in and continue along to fill it all in. I told you it was easy! I will be honest though. I wish I had an extra set of hands while making these because it would have been completed much faster: 1 person to put the pin through the sequin and another to add it to the egg.
Then, I painted the paper mache eggs white and took a thin brush to make confetti marks on the now white eggs once they were dry.
