- Paper Mache covered Foam Easter egg from Target (here is a slightly smaller Amazon option)
- Spray paint in several colors
- Utility knife
- Faux flowers (or fresh if you want to put in a little extra effort with your vase)
Begin by spray painting bands of color around your egg. I started with yellow at the bottom and worked my way up to blue. But feel free to use any colors you want or shades of the same color. You may need to go back over a few colors once you have the entire egg sprayed to create a more blended look, but just keep spraying until you get the look you want.
Once the paint is dry, use the utility knife to cut out a 3″ circle from the top of the egg. This egg is made of Styrofoam, so it is pretty easy to cut. Cut down into the egg to create a 4″ deep cavity to place your flowers.
If using faux flowers you can stop here and just insert the stems directly into the foam to create your arrangement. If you want to go the fresh flower route, then dig out the foam deeper (until you are about an inch away from the bottom of the egg) and insert a slim bud vase or drinking glass into the carved out space. You can then fill the glass with water and add your fresh flowers.
However you choose to make yours, this large egg vase will make the perfect centerpiece at your Easter table! Don’t you agree?
