Sometimes when I set the table I lack a good pot for my springtime flowers and branches. I solved that problem by making some giant Easter Eggs – the perfect vessel for a bunch of mini-daffodils!
First I created the eggs by blowing up a balloon, sticking it to a base (a heavy glass) with some tape and then gluing layer upon layer of paper strips to it. I used plain newspaper and plain wallpaper glue. When the eggs were thick enough I popped the balloons and trimmed the edges so they look like eggs that have cracked.
I painted the eggs pink or yellow and went to town with lots of colors and splatters. I finished them with a couple layers of furniture varnish.
Makes for an artistic and fun addition to any Easter table!
