This morning, while out grocery shopping, I picked up a few candy eggs. I probably could have chosen a brighter color, but I was also being cheap. The pink wrapped eggs were less than a $1.50, so I went with it. I wanted to make an Easter centerpiece for the diningroom table.
You will need: several wine glasses, tulle (or Easter grass), candy and a tealight (or votive) candles.
When I got home, instead of using Easter grass, which goes everywhere, I opted to utilize some leftover tulle. Cut long strips of the tulle from the roll, and then bunched it up. Having already added five candies to each wine glass, I pushed the tulle in and flipped the wine glass upside down. I had to add a bit more tulle to each glass so the candy stayed at the top of the glass. When I was satisfied with how the glass looked, I added some white tealights to the top of each glass.
Now, my table isn’t overly large, unless I add extra leaves to extend it. I just made three of these and put them in a row on the table. I used a pastel green tablecloth and it made a really cute, simple and elegant centerpiece. Now to find some cute placemats for the table and I’ll be all set.
