How To Create This Easter Eggs Centerpiece

1. Dye Easter Eggs ...

... or buy them already colored!

  • For the Easter table centerpiece on this page, I dyed white eggs because all the surrounding colors were light, bright 'summer' colors.
  • If you're decorating your Easter table in a less saturate, 'vintage' color scheme, consider using brown eggs instead. They dye to wonderfully mellow tones and work beautifully with country style Easter table settings.
  • The detailed dyeing instructions are here.

2. Make Paper Easter Nests

  • The little Easter nests are made from strands of shredded kraft paper, coiled and tied into loose knots. Detailed instructions here!
  • The dull tan color goes beautifully with just about any other color, and it's particularly great for showing off brightly hued Easter eggs.
  • If you don't have a paper shredder, you need a craft knife, cutting mat, and ruler to slice kraft paper into narrow strips, plus a stapler to hold each end of the paper strands together. But that's all it takes, and making the nests is incredibly easy.

Arranging Your Easter Eggs Centerpiece

  • You can make these nests in any size. If they're larger, though, you may want to place each nest on a plate so it doesn't fall apart.
  • I wanted to create a formal element for this informal, 'Easter picnic' table setting, so I lined the nests up in a neat row. But here's a pic of a more informal arrangement of the same Easter nests!
