Easter Centerpiece

And this is why my Mom doesn’t like Pinterest…I find all of these great projects and email them to her with a “I bet we could make this…”  which translates to…”I bet you could totally figure out a way to make this, Mom.”

That’s how I talked her into helping me make this little beauty a couple of weekends ago! 

We gathered up all of the mesh Mom had left over from other projects along the supplies pictured below.

How to Make an Easter Centerpiece
 
We attached the Bunny ears to the center of the Styrofoam using Greening Pins.
 
We cut strips of the mesh between 10 and 12 inches wide (4 of each color).  The mesh will want to curl back up like it is on the spool.  Let it!  This makes the loops.  Then gather 1 of each color of mesh together in the center and secure with a wire pick.
 
 
Attach the bunch at one end of the Styrofoam.

 
Make 3 more bunches like the one above and attach to the other end and the center (one in front of the ears and one behind).

 
Add ribbon using wire picks.  I made the plain yellow ribbon shown below a little more interesting by adding another color ribbon on top of it and securing with a pick.

 
Finally, we added Easter Eggs on sticks (found at the Dollar Tree) and a few other fillers.
