Pottery Barn Style Floral Easter Eggs
If you're looking for craft ideas for Easter that are more fun than Easter egg coloring, try these Pottery Barn Style Floral Easter Eggs. Faux hydrangea blossoms in the style of Pottery Barn Easter eggs are perfect as unique Easter egg decorations!
- 6 papier mache eggs (available at Michael's for $2.50 each)
- 3 feet of ribbon
- 6 bunches of silk hydrangea flowers (2 bunches per color)
- hot glue/glue gun
- Heat up your glue gun and snip all of the blossoms off the stems.
- Separate the blossoms by color.
- Separate the blossoms by size.
- Cut 6 pieces of ribbon about 6" long each. Put a dab of hot glue on the top of an egg. Gently press one end of the ribbon in the glue. Loop the ribbon around and glue it to the secured end. Now you have a pretty little loop to hang your eggs.
- Begin gluing the blooms on. Start with the large blooms. You might have to put a dab of glue in the center of the flower first, stick it on, and then add some glue to the petals. They don't have to lay flat. In fact it's better if they don't. However, you don't want them sticking out in every direction either.
- Once you have a nice coverage from the large blooms, begin filling in the spaces with the medium- and small-sized blooms. Keep gluing until you can't see any of the original egg.
- Then you're finished! Hang in a lovely spot or on some branches in a vase.
