Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to create Chalk Painted Easter Egg Flower Vases. These will be a fun addition to my breafast nook tablescape for Easter.
These Pinterest Challenges are a lot of fun to participate in. We all have tons of pins that we think we’re going to try one day. This challenge encourages us to make one day, today!
My Pin Inspiration for my flower vases came from these cute Plastic Easter Egg Flower Pots. These were shared by Made With Happy. While these used real flowers that were potted in the eggs, I chose to use faux flowers for mine and to paint mine using peach chalk paint.
It’s always great when you have most of the items on hand to make a craft. I purchased the flowers and styrofoam square at the Dollar Tree recently. The paint, eggs, and ribbon were all in my craft stash.
Plastic Easter Eggs
I separated the eggs and painted each piece using Craft Smart Premium Chalky Paint in Deep Peach. To allow them to dry without adhering to a surface, I pushed skewers into a piece of styrofoam and hung each egg piece on top. It took two coats for full coverage.
Using wire cutters, I clipped the flowers leaving just a little bit of the stem. I cut four small pieces from the styrofoam block using a box cutter.
To keep the flower from moving around, I glued the styrofoam to the inside of the large section of the egg.
The two egg pieces are hot glued together with the larger one on top.
The flower stem is poked into the styrofoam.
To cover the hot glue I added a sheer piece of ribbon to each egg and tied it off into a simple bow.
This was a super easy project to make, but I think these Chalk Painted Easter Egg Flower Vases will be a pretty addition to my breakfast nook Easter tablescape. I’m using peach and copper for the main colors on that table and these will fit in perfectly at each place setting.
An easy, inexpensive, and quick to make craft that turns out the way I hoped it would is always a win to me!
I’ll be sharing our Easter tablescapes for our breakfast nook that’s done in copper and peach and our dining room that’s done in pink, gold, and neutrals later this week. I’ll hope you’ll stop back by and have a look at them!
