Tutorial:  Dollar Store Easter Egg Bouquet

After a couple of recent trips to Dollar Tree, I have been heavily into my Easter crafting. My latest creation is a bouquet of a dozen colorful eggs, arranged in a fun little vessel (I think it’s supposed to be a watering can?) that I thought looked very springy. After the holiday I will probably disassemble the bouquet (I don’t know how well it will store, so rather than break it I will just take it apart) – I am so happy with the way the container turned out that I will definitely be working it into my holiday decor again next year!

Project estimate:

  • Container, $1
  • Stencils, on hand or $1 and up
  • Paint, on hand or $1 and up
  • Floral foam, on hand or $1
  • Easter egg picks (large and small), $2
  • Easter grass, on hand or $1
  • Hot glue, on hand

Total: $3 and up

As soon as I spotted this little metal container I knew I wanted to do something for Easter with it. It’s just so cute!

I dressed it up with stencils; first I painted a bunny, then I added grass. Both stencils are from the Martha Stewart Holiday Icons II set, which covers a whole bunch of holidays and has come in handy for me so many times! This particular set is self-adhesive, and they work great on curved surfaces. The painted I used was also from the Martha Stewart line, with both colors in a pearl finish.

Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside the container and glue it in place with hot glue.

Arrange your egg picks in the foam. I used 5 large eggs and 7 small eggs for a dozen total.

Cover the foam with Easter grass; work it around the picks and tuck the ends and any excess into the space around the edges of the foam.

I still need to add a few more details to my display, but my Easter decor is staring to come together! How about yours?
