Sometimes I over complicate things. Whether it is in home decor, holiday crafts or even deciding on a paint color for a room. Most times it’s better to go simple. It saves time and mental energy. That is the reason I came up with a tutorial on How To Make an Easy Spring or Easter Centerpiece.
After looking through my Easter decorations, I decided to make something simple for my cottage apartment back porch.
This is what I used:
*Vintage Wire Egg Basket
*Faux Grass Mats
*Vintage Easter Egg Ornaments
*Real Wax Flower Stems
*Shredded Paper Filler
*Store Bought Nest
I lined the bottom of the wire basket with faux grass mats from the 99 cent store. I cut them to fit the bottom of the basket for a base of the centerpiece.
To add a vintage look, I wanted to use the glittery Easter egg ornaments that my grandma made at least 40-45 years ago.
They are really cute decorated with tiny birds, butterflies, beads and ribbon. I have kept these in my Easter stash for years. Not really using them because I didn’t like the ribbon or the birds. There isn’t anything wrong or bad about them. Just not my taste.
After a quick deliberation, I removed the ribbon, birds and butterflies from most of the ornaments. For my eye, they look much better.
Leaving a butterfly on one of the eggs is a nice vintage Spring touch.
Tucking in a bunch of fresh wax flowers (from Trader Joes) added a nice touch without being complicated.
The shredded paper filler around the bottom highlights the Spring basket.
Finishing with a tiny faux nest from Big Lots, I love this Spring/Easter basket for a fresh look.
It’s fun as a Spring decorating piece or as an Easter centerpiece.
Like I said in the beginning, sometimes I over complicate things. I am glad I took a little time to be simple and not overthink this project.
Do you overthink projects like I do? I hope that I have inspired YOU to learn How To Make an Easy Spring or Easter Centerpiece for your home without being complicated.
