Yummy Easter Blooms
Get crafty using something edible for this Easter holiday. Use this craft idea from A Spoonful of Sugar as your centerpiece for your Easter brunch. This is a great tutorial to put together.
- Flower pot (we got ours from Ikea)
- Floristry foam
- Green floristry tape
- Green floristry wire
- Clear cellophane
- Green tissue paper
- Easter eggs - small and medium
- Long nose pliers
For the small buds, we cut a piece of clear cellophane into 5 inch square and folded it into four quarters. We inserted the small egg into the folded cellophane and scrunched up the cellophane around it. (By folding the cellophane first, it makes a little pointy top so the egg looks more like a little rose bud).
We wrapped some wire around the cellophane to secure, and then covered the top of the wire with floristy tape.
For the larger eggs we used a piece of cellophane cut into 8 inch square, and used the same technique. We then cut a piece of florist foam to fit the flower pot, and inserted the stems into the foam. We then cut pieces of green tissue paper approx 6 inch square. We grabbed the middle of the tissue paper and scrunched it slightly, and then wrapped a length of wire around it. We poked these into the foam to hide all the flower stems.
