Easter Ideas

Simple DIY projects for Easter - Decorate Easter eggs with spray paint and create an Easter bunting.

    

EASTER EGGS

Equipment

- Eggs
- Masking Tape
- Scissors
- Glitter
- Disposable Gloves
- Spray Glue
- Spray Paint (Montana - Strawberry, Mint, Lemon)
- String
- Cardboard and egg carton (for drying)

Method

1. Boil eggs

2. To create a two tone design, use masking tape around the egg. Make sure the area which you do not want painted is covered properly with masking tape and the edges are flattened with a fingernail to avoid paint from seeping in. We created a V shape design on our eggs.

3. Shake your spray paint can well prior to spraying. Spray approximately 15cm from the egg as this will prevent any paint from dripping. Spray one side first and allow to dry for 5-10 minutes and do the following steps on the other side.

4. Once dried if you want to add glitter, use masking tape around the egg, overlapping the spray painted section (make sure the egg is completely dry before using masking tape over the paint).

5. Use spray glue and dip into glitter tray (pour glitter into a cup or tray for dipping) Allow to dry for 10 minutes. 

6. Display eggs in a bowl, scatter the eggs in the centre of your table or hang them like an ornament on a branch.

*If you want to hang the eggs, before spray painting them, use a hot glue gun and glue the string (create a loop) to the tip of the egg and allow to dry.

BUNTING

Equipment

- Wooden Letters (20cm Height) 
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Gun Sticks
- Mini Balsa Wood Flowers
- Disposable Gloves
- Spray Glue 
- Spray Paint (Montana - Strawberry and Mint)
- Scissors 
- String
- Cardboard 

Method

1. Select your letters / phrase, we have used wooden letters EGG HUNT for Easter.

2. Spray paint your letters in your desired colours. Make sure you shake your spray can well and place cardboard below the letter. Spray approximately 15cm from the letter as this will prevent any paint from dripping. Allow to dry for 5-10 minutes

3. Using a hot glue gun, glue our mini balsa wood flowers on the corner of the letters. We have used 3 flowers on each corner (6 flowers per letter).

4. Work out how much string is needed to hang the bunting. Lay out the string on the ground and place the letters on the string to work out spacing and alignment (make sure you have thick cardboard underneath to prevent glue from sticking to the floor).

5. Use a hot glue gun and put a line of glue at the top of each letter (1.5cm from top) doing one letter at a time. Make sure you leave enough string before the start of the first letter and end of the last letter for hanging.

6. Our balsa wood flowers can also be fragranced using our refresher sprays or can be scented when purchased.

 EASTER TABLE SETTING

We created a pastel Easter theme for our table setting.

To decorate the table further we have used a letter as a place-card (for guests to take home as a party favour). We have also used 3 large balsa wood flowers in cloches and scattered candles across the table. Finish off with our Chocolate Ganache home spray. A decadent rich fragrance, milk chocolate praline combined with cocoa, perfect for Easter.
