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.

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.

  1. Cool Eggs! I love the sparkle. My parents, for a time, would bring home projects each Sunday for everyone to do. One Sunday it was a craft kit with plastic fruit, colored beads and straight pins. We covered that fruit until our fingers almost bled. Mom tired to sell them, give them away, or toss them over the years and us kids would let her. We love them and the pain. Still do. Pinning! Happy Easter ~Jeanette

  2. Your eggs are beautiful. A decoration made by hand that has a family story behind it is such a treasure! You’ll be able to enjoy these for years..who knows, maybe pass on to your little ones. 🙂 It’s a perfect project to share with all of our readers this week.

  3. Love these! I actually made some sequin ornaments last year in memory of my grandmother’s ornaments. 😉 I don’t know what happened to hers, I think one of my aunts has them now. Anyway- pinning each sequin on is very time consuming and cramped up my fingers- I couldn’t imagine how difficult it would be with smaller sequins! I appreciate all the work you put into them- they look beautiful. Thanks for be part of the Easter tour!

  4. I’ll bet these look great in the natural sunlight in your home. I can imagine that they really sparkle. My grandmother also made sequined ornaments and I so wish that I had some of them.
