easter center 2Spring 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)
  • Ribbon
  • 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 easter centerpiecetogether. 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.
