Dollar Store Easter Party Centerpiece Craft

by Linette

I went to the local dollar store the other day to see what I could come up with on a budget for cute Easter table decorations. I found a pack of glittery eggs, and some daisy flower lollipops both in bright Spring colors. The colors coordinated really well so I decided I would take them home and see what I could do.

When I got them home I thought they might look cute coming out of a pot like flowers, so I found an old clay pot, washed it out and gave it a coat of paint. I also grabbed some floral Styrofoam, paper Easter grass from last year, some Robin’s Egg Candy, and some acrylic paints and brushes I had in my craft drawers.

I painted the flower pot a bright pink with some craft paint I already had, the pink matched some of the other colors in my dollar store finds. I also painted some little daisies on the pot in spring colors to coordinate it with the flower lollipops I bought at the Dollar Store.

I cut the floral foam to fit inside the flower pot and put some of the Easter grass on top to hide the foam.

I arranged the flower lollies, and the eggs in the flower pot until everything looked in proportion. Then I dropped the candies into the grass.

These would make fun low cost Easter table centerpieces, or party favors for your kid’s Easter party. Each finished table decoration or favor would cost less than $5, and would be easy to assemble. You don’t have to get fancy when you paint the pots, you can paint them one solid color if you don’t want to spend the time making flowers.

When the party is over you can send them home with the guests as party favors, or draw a couple names or numbers out of a hat and give them as door prizes.
