Live life in full bloom this season by adding these DIY Flower Egg Vases to your spring decor!
When it comes to spring, I love to bring the outdoors inside and fill my home with beautiful blooms (though I usually pick up some faux flowers that will last all season). There’s nothing quite as cheery as seeing beautiful flowers throughout the house.
This spring, I wanted to create some fun flower displays to put out on the table for some extra spring flair. Combining my love for blossoms and spring’s most important holiday—Easter—I took some shimmery, pastel plastic Easter eggs and turned them into adorable springtime vases for my flowers!
These DIY Flower Egg Vases are so incredibly easy to assemble and would look lovely as a table centerpiece, on a fireplace mantle, or on a window sill! However you choose to display them, they will surely brighten your spring or Easter decor!
Read on below to learn how to make your own DIY Flower Egg Vases!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Large, plastic Easter eggs
- Faux flowers
- Decorative vase filler or small rocks
- Sharp scissors or wire cutters
- Sharp, small screwdriver or a drill bit to cut into plastic eggs
Here’s How to Make Your DIY Flower Egg Vases:
To make your DIY Flower Egg Vase, start by making a small hole at the center point on top of the plastic egg. It would be easiest to do this with a small drill bit, but since I didn’t have any power tools on hand, I used a small, but sharp screwdriver to puncture a hole into the top of the plastic egg. It takes a bit of pressure, but the plastic egg will eventually give way. There are also two other small holes on the top of the plastic egg, on either side of the center, so I also used the screwdriver to widen those open slots.
Once you have three openings at the top of the plastic egg, here’s where you get to have some fun!
Grab an assortment of faux flowers (I found some really cute ones at Dollar Tree, but you could also find some beautiful faux flower arrangements at Michael’s!). I decided to use flowers that were similar in shade to each of the plastic eggs, but feel free to use whatever flowers you’d like to make it match your spring decor!
Trim whatever flowers you’d like to use so the stem is short enough to fit inside the plastic egg. Once you have all of the flowers and/or greenery trimmed, insert the stems into the open slots on the top of the egg. You can add as many flowers as you’d like.
For my Flower Egg Vases, I had 6 plastic eggs, so I decided to make three of the arrangements larger and the other three smaller. Just get creative with your arrangements!
As a side note, you could also use fresh flowers here instead of the faux flowers from the craft store. In this case, before inserting the flowers, I would suggest using hot glue to plug up the small holes on the bottom of the plastic egg that way you could put water within the eggs to keep the flowers fresh and healthy.
Once you have all of your flowers arranged into the egg vases, you’ll need to weight them down. To do this, I used some small vase filler beads to help them stand upright. I simply placed three to four beads in the base of each plastic egg (make sure the beads are equally placed in strategic points in the base of the egg to ensure that it’ll stand up straight), closed the egg up, and gently stood them upright. You may have to gently shake the egg to move around the beads to make sure the plastic eggs are standing perfectly straight.
If you opt to use fresh flowers, make sure to add the beads in before adding water for the flowers.
After you’ve added all of the beads to each egg vase, you’re done! How easy was that?!
