A Quick Tutorial on How to Make an Easter Centerpiece
Before you make Easter-themed name cards or placeholders for the big family dinner, consider making a gorgeous Easter style centerpiece for the table! I whipped this one up in just a few minutes, so I’m sure anyone with a glue gun can do the same!
What You Will Need:
- Twig Wreath ( I got one from my local craft shop )
- Plastic and/or Styrofoam Easter eggs
- Extra little decorations that are lightweight such as flowers and leaves
- Glue gun and glue sticks
How to Make It
Step One: Add the Eggs
Plug in the glue gun and wait for it to heat up. Then, begin placing the plastic eggs where they rest snuggly around the wreath. Secure them with hot glue. Make sure to evenly space them to leave room for other items
Step Two: Fill in the Gaps
Using the hot glue, start placing the other items around the wreath in a decorative manner, filing in the space.
Step Three: Let Dry and Set
And that’s it! Look how easy it was to whip up this cute little Easter table centerpiece! Your friends and family will love it!
