DIY Plastic Easter Egg Spring Bouquet
February 27, 2013 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized
Plastic Easter eggs turned into a funky modern spring bouquet? Why not! There might still be snow on the ground, but I say its not too early to bring a little spring indoors with these!
Did you know most plastic eggs come with two little holes on each end? That opens up the crafting possibilities! You can string them into a garland, wrap a stem through them, etc. I had seen this bouquet made from plastic Easter eggs on Pinterest, but I thought I could take the idea one step further. A little floral wire and crepe paper give an organic shape to the bouquet and more realistic flowers. I think they look like tulips before they fully open up – what do you think?
I bet you have some old plastic eggs stored away from years past. Why not transform them into a bouquet to last you through the spring? This is a super simple project that you can do under an hour. Here’s what you need:
Supplies for Plastic Easter Egg Spring Bouquet
I had most of the floral craft supplies left over from my crepe paper roses (have you seen them? They are by far the most popular craft on this blog so check them out!)
How to Make a Plastic Easter Egg Bouquet
1. Take a piece of your floral wire and wrap it through the holes in the bottom of the plastic egg (thread it up through one hole and down through the other). Make sure to thread it through the wider / rounder side of the egg if you want the tulip look.
2. Once you have looped the wire through both holes wrap it around itself a few times:
3. Use the floral tape to cover up the wrapped wire.
4. Cut some long leaf shapes from the crepe paper (I just cut out some rough shapes freehand that I thought looked like tulip leaves!)
5. Take a leaf and wrap it around the stem and then affix it by wrapping your floral tape tightly around it:
6. Add 1-2 leaves per stem and you’ve made an egg flower! Repeat with the rest of the Easter eggs until you have enough for a bouquet.
7. Place some floral foam in the bottom of your vase and stick the stems into the foam to hold them in place. Bend the stems and flowers to make them look like a natural bouquet.
