We’re sharing another super simple project today – an egg basket flower arrangement!
This season we’ve made every attempt to keep our home décor festive without a lot of extra fuss.
And by extra fuss, I mean decorating the house with trays and baskets that can easily be moved, as well as, quick and easy craft project ideas!
Truthfully, I hope it’s something we continue to embrace for the rest of the year.
Another thing we’ve really tried hard to highlight this season is small things we can drop off to neighbors, family, and friends to let them know we’re thinking of them.
Nothing expensive or super fancy.
Something to merely say…I miss you…I’m here for you…I see you…I understand…I love you… or simply, I’m sorry.
This simple egg basket flower arrangement is really easy to make and can be used throughout spring and into the summer season.
It’s one of those project ideas that are completely customizable based on your recipient and how much time you have to create.
Like a lot of the projects, we’ve made this spring, this egg basket flower arrangement probably doesn’t even need a tutorial.
But as my Mom repeatedly says, “It’s always good to have a visual.”
Here’s a look at how to create a simple egg basket flower arrangement…
Egg Basket Flower Arrangement Supplies:
- Wire Egg Basket
- Floral Foam, optional
- Small Eggs
- Small Jar, Pot, or Flower Container
Egg Basket Flower Arrangement Steps:
Make sure your wire egg basket is clean and free from dirt and debris.
If your egg basket is raised in the middle place a piece of floral foam at the bottom to give your small jar or flower container a level place to sit.
Once you have the floral foam in place, begin scattering eggs (faux, wooden, or even plastic will work just make sure you have several sizes) around the floral foam.
Next, place your small jar, pot, or flower container on top of the floral foam.
If your egg basket is flat on the bottom you might be able to forgo the floral foam completely and place your flower container directly into the wire egg basket.
Continue to add eggs around the jar or container until you’ve reached the top of the wire egg basket.
Place flowers into the jar or container.
Keep in mind, if you’re using real flowers, you’ll need to carefully add water to the jar or flower container prior to final placement.
Twist or bend the flower stems and leaves until you can no longer see the flower container or floral foam.
Decorating and Gift Giving…
What we love about this egg basket flower arrangement other than it’s so easy to make is that you can use whatever color eggs and flowers work best for your home and budget.
It can be pulled together in just a few minutes, given to family and friends, placed on a kitchen island, the coffee bar, or even on a nightstand for guests.
It can even be used as an extra special way to celebrate a favorite afternoon coffee or tea time ritual.
Our Actions Have Value…
I know we’ve talked a lot about finding ways to encourage and lift each other up this season. It might seem like such a simple thing but it actually means more than we can usually imagine.
Recently, we visited a loved one who shared one of his neighbors had dropped off a pot of soup, homemade bread, and brownies when he was sick.
To be sure, it was a sweet and thoughtful gesture.
What made him most excited though was that she had also included a small bouquet of grocery store flowers for his table.
To his neighbor, those flowers were a random act of kindness.
But to our loved one, they were a generous reminder of all the years he had enjoyed a flower and vegetable garden.
Every day our actions have value, may we never forget simple ways to make them count.
