Hydrangea Covered Easter Egg



I was inspired by some Martha Stewart Easter decor at from Grandin Road to make these beautiful hydrangea covered Easter eggs.  I found large plastic eggs at Michael's and picked out some different colored faux hydrangea bunches.  These were pretty easy to make.  All you will need is a large plastic egg, faux hydrangea, and hot glue.  I made them in a few different colors.  I tried to get eggs that matched the flowers since you will see it peak through a bit.  However they didn't have any green eggs so I spray painted one white for the green hydrangea I had.  If you don't want the egg color to show through I would suggest painting it white (or the color of the hydrangea) beforehand. 


First take off a bunch of hydrangea, then cut off one flower at a time.  You will cut underneath the flower right below the stem.



Then hot glue the bottom and place on the egg.  Pretty simple just a little time consuming. Continue this until you have completely covered the egg.  



Here are a few different colored eggs finished for my pretty Easter scape on the entryway console table.  I will post photos of the entire console soon. You can also see the pretty little stenciled box below - my first silhouette project! I will have a tutorial for that soon as well.  Aren't the eggs just so pretty!  I moved them around the house and they looked great everywhere!  On candlestick holders, in pots, and they would look beautiful as a topiary.  Maybe I will try that next since I am the topiary queen.

  1. Trisha you've done it again - another really fabulous project. So simple - why didn't I think of that? Can't wait to see the entire console. PS - I always wondered what to do with those giant pastel eggs at Michaels, now I know.
