DIY Easter: Floral Eggs

Good morning! Today we're excited to share an Easter project with you - Gorgeous floral eggs! How lovely are these? We created them with plastic eggs, making this a decor item you can display over and over again!  

Gather your supplies: 
  • Plastic or wood eggs (We found a set of 12 white plastic eggs at Walmart for less than $2)
  • Flower punch (The flower we used is from EK Success)
  • Liquid Adhesive (Glossy Accents is our favorite)
  • Pearl Embellishments or Liquid Pearl Pen (Such as our favorite Viva Pens or Liquid Pearls)

Start with your egg base. Leave the eggs as is or add color with dye or paint. We loved the white on white look, leaving the first egg white and using white cardstock flowers. Next, punch out flowers from cardstock or patterned paper. We rounded the flower petals with our fingers for added dimension, but you can choose to leave yours flat. 

Start at the top of your egg and adhere each flower with a permanent liquid adhesive. Glossy Accents is our go-to. It's easy to use and dries quickly. Next, add a pearl to the center of each flower. A liquid pearl pen is the easiest and most affordable option. Simply squeeze a small amount of the medium onto the center of each flower. It will dry in under 10 minutes, creating a hard pearl. 

Now onto the hard part of this project - Deciding where to display them! Throw them into a bowl or glass hurricane, string them onto an Easter tree, or use them as place cards. So many options for these beautiful floral eggs!
