Welcome back to Day 2 in the 5 day series hopefully inspiring you to create some Easter fun at your house. Yesterday I showed you how I made the ‘peat-pots-turned-antique-paper-mache-looking-planters’.
Today, it’s all about texture.
I love texture, and lately I’ve been occupied with decorating with texture, almost in place of color. So for this Easter centerpiece tablescape, I was thrilled when I pinned these jute covered eggs from Posed Perfection on my Pinterest Easter board for the inspiration.
So here are the eggs I made for the dining table at ‘Our House’:
The chunky jute gives incredible texture to the eggs in the tin basket.
I finished them with a vintage ribbon bow in a bright green and chocolate brown stripe.
In a nutshell… (er should I say eggshell?) Here are the simple steps to making the jute covered eggs.
I bought the ‘jumbo’ size eggs from Wal-Mart, I think one pack was 88 cents. And the chunky jute was left over from the burlap and jute table re-do project I did a couple of weeks ago.
I found it helpful to start with glue-gunning the seam around the middle of the egg shut, or else it kept popping open when I was holding the egg trying not to burn my fingers with the hot glue…
The tin basket I ‘found’ in the shed… I’ve had it for years holding garden stuff, but decided this year to make a centerpiece out of it. After I rinsed it out a little bit.
So I kind of gave it away in the picture, but tomorrow which is day 3 in the 5 day series of building this centerpiece tablescape, will be how I made the other eggs in the tin basket, then day 4 will be about what’s just out of your view, sitting behind the peat pots and basket of eggs…
