Make This: DIY Flower Easter Eggs

Easter is just three days away and I have one last egg project to share before it’s too late. Naturally, it’s super easy…and may even involve flowers. Hint: It does!

As a last minute way to decorate eggs, I picked out some baby’s breath and a hydrangea from a bouquet I already had and made these flowery polka dot eggs (along with some striped options).

If you’re looking for something simple and pretty, versus campy and kiddish, this is the way to go. They’d look great as decoration for an Easter dinner party as well – as a centerpiece or nestled into each napkin as a pretty treat for guests at the table.

Supplies for Flower Easter Eggs

Here’s how to make your own…

Materials: Hardboiled Eggs // Craft Glue // Baby’s Breath + Hydrangeas (Aster and Button Poms also pictured above, but not used in the tutorial)

How To: Cut small flowers off the stem and glue them onto hardboiled eggs in a random pattern. That’s it! It’s really that simple. If you’re really in a hurry, you can use a hot glue gun instead of regular craft glue, as well.

Baby's Breath Easter Egg DIY

Admittedly, I’m not typically a big fan of baby’s breath or hydrangeas. BUT in this case, the small blooms work well for the eggs, scale-wise, and the fact that they each have a flat back makes them easier to attach with glue.

So, what do you think? Will you try making these polka dot flower eggs for Easter?

Absolutely Rebekah. If I had more time, I would have dyed the baby’s breath different colors before attaching them to the eggs.

Aw, thanks Kel! I’m normally not a big baby’s breath person, but in this case, I do kind of like it.
