If you’re anything like me you have a love for DIY and a love of holiday decor…you also hate the price tags on the store bought stuff. When I went to the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago I wasn’t looking for Easter Decorations, I just needed a cheap birthday card. As I walked around the store I was hit in the face with inspiration. They have so many packages of these little glittery eggs (I’ve used them on bows before) and I was trying to figure out what I could do with them. I mean, they are glittery and I love glitter. So, this is what I came up with to use those silly little Easter eggs.
This project is perfect for Easter or Ostara, whichever you celebrate.
2 Straight Glass Vases (Dollar Tree)
Glass Tealight holder (Dollar Tree)
Green Moss (Dollar Tree)
Styrofoam Glitter Eggs (Dollar Tree)
A Stick or Dowel Rod
E6000 Craft Glue
Gather your supplies. Remove labels from the vases.
Put some E6000 glue on the bottom of the smaller vase and set it inside the larger vase leaving room between the two. You will fill this space up in the next step. Allow the glue to dry.
Add moss in the space between the two vases, about halfway up. Use the stick or dowel rod to push it down to the bottom.
Add some of the glitter eggs on top of the moss. Add as many or as few as you like.
Put E6000 glue on the lip of the inner vase. Sit the tealight candle holder onto the inner vase and allow to dry.
Step Six: (Optional)
Wrap a piece of ribbon around the vase and secure with hot glue or E6000, if you line it right you can hide the joint of the vase and candle holder. Add a small bow to the front of the vase. I even added a small spiral bead in the center of the bow.
Put a tealight candle, light it and enjoy!
I hope that you enjoyed this frugal DIY! If you make one, please leave a comment and let me know how it turns out!
