It’s been a while since I dove into a DIY project, so when I recently made a trip to my local craft store, I immediately felt inspired to make something. Since Easter is coming up, there are currently tons of cute pastel colored decor and craft items in stores right now and I couldn’t pass it up. I’m a sucker for bright colors!
We already had bags of Easter candy in the house (husband has a sweet tooth like no other!), so I figured I might as well put some of it to use. I put together this cute DIY Easter egg bouquet and it reminds me of a candy bouquet and Easter egg hunt in one! It was pretty simple to make, but does require a bit of patience if I’m being honest! Check out the tutorial below. This Easter egg bouquet would make for a great gift since it puts a fun spin on a traditional Easter basket!
DIY EASTER EGG BOUQUET:
WHAT YOU NEED:
– Flat craft sticks
– Hot glue gun
– Easter basket grass
– 2 dozen plastic Easter eggs
– Medium vase (approximately 8″ tall)
– Craft foam half balls or styrofoam ball (to fit inside vase)
– Easter candy to fill inside eggs
Step 1: Fill Easter eggs with individually wrapped candy.Step 2: Using a hot glue gun, carefully glue the flat craft sticks to the bottom half of the Easter eggs. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Place the foam ball inside the vase, then arrange the eggs on the sticks into the foam ball. Space them out as you deem necessary. There’s no right or wrong way to this part, you just have to eye it! Remember when I said this project would require a little patience!?
Step 4: Once your eggs are arranged to your liking, fill the top of the vase with Easter grass.Step 5: Using ribbon of your choice, add a bow around the middle of the vase for a finishing touch! What I like most about this DIY Easter egg bouquet is the versatile uses it has. You can give it as a gift, use it in place of an Easter basket, or even use it as a cute table arrangement for decor!
For this project, I used MARS® Mixed Mini Bags 165ct candy found at Sam’s Club. They have a great variety to shop early and stock up on for all of spring’s mini moments!
