Hiya, Pinky Pals! It’s Nicole from 365(ish) Days of Pinterest and I’m back again this month with a quick and easy Easter centerpiece for you to put together. I’m not the most “crafty” type of person, so quick and easy are the only kind of projects I do. 🙂 Depending on what you already have at home, this centerpiece can be put together for under $5 and it takes a grand total of 3 minutes to finish.
See? Easy. It’s what I do.
Start by gathering your supplies. I just hit up my local dollar store to see what fun Easter decorations they had in stock. I bought a bag of pastel paper, some glittery egg picks and a package of Easter egg Peeps. I already had a large globe and a glass that would fit inside it. When I ready to actually put it all together, I picked up a bunch of daffodils from the grocery store to pull it all together.
Nestle the glass inside your globe and stuff the paper grass all the way around it. Fill it up about 1/3 of the way.
On top of the grass, add the layer of marshmallow eggs, pressing down to keep it level. It’s much easier to work with the marshmallows when they are dried out and not sticky anymore, so I would suggest opening the package when you get it home from the store to let them get stale and dried out a bit.
One package of eggs was perfect for the size of my globe. You may need more or less-just eyeball it and then cram them in there so they are tightly squeezed next to each other.
After you get all the eggs in, just fill up the vase the rest of the way with the rest of the paper. One bag of paper will probably be plenty, since you aren’t filling the center of the vase, thanks to the glass inside.
Then all you need for your colorful centerpiece are some beautiful spring flowers like daffodils or tulips! Fill the inside glass with water and add the flowers.
This is sitting on my table right now and it brings a little smile to my face every time I see it. There’s nothing like pretty spring colors to brighten up your day. 🙂 Happy Easter!
