Things You'll Need

  • Collection of branches

  • Wooden eggs

  • Acrylic paint in pastel tones

  • Dry floral foam

  • Vintage-looking vase or container

  • Fabric flowers or fresh flowers

  • Yarn or ribbon

  • Tacky glue

  • Moss

  • Wood, glass, or clay beads

1. Prep your branches

Take a walk in your neighborhood or local park and gather branches in various sizes. Aim for a variety of thicknesses for visual interest. Trim your branches to the desired length and remove any leaves or debris. You can also give them a quick wash and dry to ensure they're clean.


2. Paint the eggs

Get some wooden eggs that can be found in craft stores or online. Get creative and paint them using acrylic paint in pastel tones to add some color and obtain that Easter feeling!


After painting them, let them dry for a couple of hours.

3. Secure the branches

Cut the floral foam and place it in your vintage vase or container. It will act as a base to secure your branches so they stay in place and don't move around.


Arrange the branches in the foam, creating a natural, asymmetrical look. Push in the branches firmly to ensure they stand upright.


4. Add flowers

Flowers are such a beautiful touch to add to the centerpiece. You can gather some flowering dogwood branches or some blooming pink cherry blossom branches and add them to the centerpiece, but if you don't have any luck finding branches with small flowers, you can replace them with fabric flowers.




Sometimes, the stems of the fabric flowers don't look really nice. So, you can remove the small fabric flowers and glue them to your natural branches for a more natural look.

5. Hang the eggs in your centerpiece

It's time to hang your beautiful eggs by wrapping a piece of yarn around them to create a kind of ornament. I used some tacky glue on the bottom of the egg just to make sure the ribbon stayed in place.


At the top of the egg, I added a wooden bead that pushes the ribbon down and secures it in place. You can use glass beads or clay beads as well.


When your eggs and ribbons are ready, hang them in the branches to create a playful and whimsical arrangement.

6. Add moss

If you'd like to add an extra detail and cover the dry floral foam, use moss on top of the arrangement. You could also add more painted wooden eggs or a couple of flowers to cover all the floral foam.


Let the natural beauty of the branches shine through. You don't need to go overboard with the quantity of eggs or flowers; sometimes, simplicity is key.

With a little creativity and these simple steps, you can create a beautiful Easter centerpiece that will be the talk of the table. So, grab your branches, gather your eggs and get ready to hatch a hoppin' good time!
