What a fun, inexpensive, unique Easter centerpiece for our little cabin table.
Another idea inspired by Martha Stewart.
The basket, eggs and burlap I had on hand already. I couldn't find a faux chocolate bunny online anywhere so I was going to order a candy mold to make it with clay. Luckily I stumbled across this one at Hobby Lobby for $2. You can't beat that price, so the candy mold idea was happily scratched. All I needed now was clover, so off to the garden nursery. They didn't have any :( ,oh well, I purchased two pretty ivy plants for $4 each and came home to assemble everything.
First I cut a strip of burlap fabric to line the open basket. Then placed the ivy plants in the basket and arranged the vines to fill the basket evenly. Next, I cut a few short pieces of heavy gauge wire and inserted one end of each piece of wire into a few green and cream colored eggs along with the chocolate bunny. Then I just stuck the exposed end of the wires on the eggs and the bunny into the dirt to finish the arrangement.
For a total of $10 and a little bit of time, we'll have a pretty centerpiece until Easter.
I really love how this turned out and I love that it is a neutral pallette.
Let me know what you think of my version.
'til next time
