I am preemptively really excited about today! Right now I am sitting in my living room preparing a few posts for next week – this week – but all I can think about is the fun spring break we have planned – Disney World! I’ll be keeping my Instagram & Twitter up to date with pictures & updates if you want to follow along!
Anywho! Today I am going to share with you how to make this adorable DIY Easter Egg Bouquet! I first came upon this idea when I saw a picture of branches with jelly beans glued to the ends. I thought it was an adorable idea, but I knew I couldn’t make it this way. For one, bugs. And secondly I would eat all of the jelly beans before they made it to the tree. And if they did get glued to the branches I would be constantly tempted to pull the gluey candy off & eat them – bad idea!
So I had to come up with a different plan – on that didn’t involve me consuming large amounts of sugary goodness!
This DIY Easter Egg Bouquet is super easy to make & very inexpensive. Plus you probably already have everything you need in & around your home – making this free decor for your home this Easter!
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
First, fill the small bowls with water & drop a varying amount of food color into each bowl – depending on how bright or light you want the “easter eggs” to look. I wanted a bright & bowl Easter Egg Bouquet so I used lots of food coloring! You can even get creative by blending colors!
Then dip each end of your q-tips in the food coloring & let dry. I noticed that if you just leave them on a plate when they dry the color will only be on the top, so I redyed them, which helped a little. So I just used the best looking ones for my Bright Easter Egg Bouquet.
While your q-tips are drying go for a little walk & find some nice branches for your vase.
Once the q-tips are dry cut all of the cotton “easter eggs” off of the sticks, right below the end of the color. Then hot glue your “easter eggs” to the ends of all of the sticks & branches.
Arrange your DIY Bright Easter Egg Bouquet in a vase & display on your table!
