Easter is coming soon (it's Sunday, April 17th) and we're excited to celebrate at home with a small family gathering. Since I always enjoy a pretty tablescape, I enlisted the help of my favorite crafter to repurpose cardboard boxes into Easter egg table decorations.
This easy craft uses supplies you likely already have at home, and it's one where the kids can definitely get involved.
To help on this project, we enlisted master crafter Karimah Henry from the site craftingafunlife.com.
If you haven't checked out her site before do it ASAP. Karimah came up with a list of supplies and step-by-step instructions for creating this cool craft.
Easter Egg Table Decoration Supplies
This supply list is pretty basic and a GREAT use for those Amazon boxes that somehow seem to pile up.
- Recycled cardboard
- Craft knife or scissors
- Scrapbook paper (floral print)
- Foam brush
A note on foam brushes: since we always seem to need them for crafts, I like this 20-piece set that's just $10 on Amazon (note this is an Amazon Affiliate link).
How to Celebrate Adoptive Parents
I recently learned that a friend who had been patiently awaiting a child became a parent practically overnight. When I heard about this loving couple bringing home their first baby, it really got me thinking about how to celebrate adoptive parents. We have experience with ...read more
Spiked Apple Cider Pops
September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer. The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. ...read more

Easter Egg Table Decoration Directions
- First, draw the size of egg you would like on recycled cardboard. You will need two eggs to make one 3D Easter egg.
- Next, cut out your eggs. You can make as many as you like for your centerpiece. Now add a slit from the bottom of one egg to the middle. Make the slit from the top of the second egg to the middle. The slit should be big enough for the eggs to fit tightly together.
- It’s time to decorate your eggs. You can glue floral print scrapbook paper to both sides of the eggs. If you are painting your eggs, you can get creative and add fun patterns or glitter. It’s also perfectly fine if you paint them and leave them plain. Allow to dry.
- Finally, put the eggs together to create your 3D Easter egg centerpiece.
The Finishing Touch
To make a full tablescape, you can add a few bouquets (I like daffodils and tulips for Easter) and maybe even a jar or two of jelly beans or these fun candle displays.
