Nothing says spring quite like plastic Easter eggs! They’re super inexpensive, come in tons of colors, and great to craft with. Here’s a quick and easy spring Easter egg tree centerpiece that would be the perfect addition to a spring mantle or brunch table. You could even fill the eggs with small treats as a fun surprise for your guests!
- Darice Colorful Plastic Easter Eggs
- Darice Lighted LED Branches
- Precision Flat Nose Pliers
- Darice 4 inch Paper Mache Clay Pot
- 4 inch Durafoam Balls
- Preserved Sheet Moss
- Dual Temp Glue Gun
- White & Pink Craft Paint
- Green Letter Stickers
Step One. Paint the paper mache pot and let dry. I painted the bottom white and the rim pink. Feel free to use whatever colors you like!
Step Two. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the Durafoam ball in half. Use a pencil to make a hole down the center and insert the lighted branch battery pack with the wire pressed off to the side. Position the ball inside of the painted pot and glue the sheet moss in place on the surface. Make sure you don’t accidentally glue the ball to the pot!
Step Four. Apply stickers to the front of the pot. Sayings like “Happy Spring” or “Happy Easter” work well. The Stickerz brand usually adheres great but if you have any problems, you can always use an additional bit of spray glue on the back.
Step Five. You can add more embellishments to the egg tree pot by adding polka dots to the rim. Using the back of a paintbrush makes this super easy to do!
To add batteries to the lighted branch, just remove the Styrofoam ball base to get at the battery pack. You don’t have to worry about the lights emitting heat since they’re LED.
