Back to Basics: Easter Decorations

Well Easter is finally here! And for all of you looking for a simple idea to decorate your table this year... well, why don't we go back to the days of childhood. Where we used to paper-mache and decorate eggs with dye in art class before the holidays. Oh the classic style.

Take a cake stand that you have in your house and place a small amount of moss on it (found at an art store or local florist).

Hard boil eggs and decorate with paint, dye, marker, crayon...whatever your choice!


You can Papier-mache one or two of these eggs to make Chicks. Roll up a couple balls of paper to make feet and shape the head to make a beek. Let the papier-mache dry then paint the majority of it yellow and a tummy with white to create your little chick. Don't forget two specks of black on the head to make eyes :)


Then, arrange your painted eggs and chicks on the cake stand, like below. Place on your table and get ready for dinner. :)
   
And if you are really up for a challenge why not make a papier-mache bunny for the table too!
