Spring has sprung and Easter is almost here! Wether you’re hosting Easter brunch or dinner, or simply want to make your coffee table a bit festive, here’s how to DIY Easter centerpiece. It could take as little as ten minutes, and with this, the simpler more rustic the better.
You’ll first need to choose a wire basket, cake stand, or large vase…….or make all three!
- 1 large package of raffia
- 1 package of paper Easter basket grass filling
- Several faux eggs (craft stores have these)
- Scrap of fabric or a cloth napkin
- and whatever else you want to make it your own
To create the nest, simply pull a chunk (for lack of a better word) of raffia out of the package, keeping the strands together. Twist the entire bundle like you’re wringing out a towel, and shape it into a circle the size of the outside perimeter of your cake stand. Wrap the ends around itself and tuck them under. The raffia tends to get a little unruly and may come undone. If this happens, secure loose pieces hair pins or floral pins.
