DIY Spring Moss Covered Eggs as Place Cards…

Hey there…We hope that Spring has finally made her appearance in your neck of the woods.

As we ready ourselves for this beautiful season we are also looking ahead to Easter. I was also thinking of how I would decorate my dining room table. I have a couple of projects in the works. These Spring moss covered eggs being one of the projects.

We headed to our fave craft store and we were thrilled with what we found. Our original thought was to use sheet moss and cover paper mache’ eggs. We soon realized that this would be more costly.

I was thrilled when I discovered a bag of styrofoam eggs – perfect for this project! This is what we purchased:

I was going to use the miniature grapevine wreaths as napkin rings, but when I saw everything laid out on the table I decided they would be better as “nests” for the eggs.

We used coupons for the sheet moss and the styrofoam eggs. The mini wreaths were only .29 cents each. Total purchase: $6.79! I have moss leftover for other projects.

Stay tuned for the final table display 🙂 Have a great day!

    Vicki, you are so creative and these look like something I would see in a boutique. What a great idea and how pretty to add the greenery and texture to them. You continue to amaze with new ideas each week. xo Lisa

    Another cute project idea! Will definitely check out the moss sheets. So much easier than loose moss ~ though both are a “tad” messy 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your Easter table! Bwg ~~~

      Hi Bobbi – Yes the moss can get a little messy – but we must say this was less messy by at least half 🙂 Stay tuned until Tuesday for the table decor!
