Easy DIY Wooden Eggs
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR EASY DIY EASTER DECORATIONS?
HOW CUTE AS A NAPKIN HOLDER
Remember my scrap wood hearts? Well I still had some wood left. It’s tongue and groove flooring and I figured I could use it up and create my own Easter decor.
You could use pine or any other scrap wood, I wanted to show you different ways you could use the eggs.
I got this egg cookie cutter and my plan was/is to make sugar cookies for Easter.
When it arrived I thought it was the perfect size to make wooden eggs.CREATING THE DIY WOODEN EGGS
I traced cookie cutter onto the wood and used my jigsaw to cut it out.After I cut the eggs, I used this WEN sander to smooth out any rough edges or places where I didn’t cut it right along the line.
You just hold the piece against a metal tab and it does all the work for you. I love this sander.Next was to decide how to decorate the eggs.DECORATING THE WOODEN EGGS
I love neutrals and my table is going to be soft pinks and greys. Shocking I know.
I picked up this tablecloth from Target and I love it.
The first decor I made was a candle holder.
I painted the egg a soft pink and added polka dots.
Next I upcycled a lid from a Sand and Fog candle by painting it for a base.
I cut up a sheet of moss and glued that to the top, then added the egg.
Next I added a candle holder behind the egg. Then I added a little carrot.
A cute little table top piece. Imagine all the colors or combinations you could make to match your own table setting.
My next project with the eggs was to make a garland. For these I painted the eggs and sanded them a bit to give them a worn look. Stapled them onto rope and I was done! I love to use garlands for decor but I like them to match my own home.
You could paint these bright colors if you are a person who loves lots of color.
EASY DIY WOODEN EGG NAPKIN RING/HOLDER
My last idea was to use the eggs to hold napkins on the table.
This was so easy to do. I glued a piece of string to the back, folded the napkin and tied the string around so the egg was on top.
An idea to personalize this could include writing a name on the bottom and using as a placecard/napkin holder.
Here is a sample of other ways you could decorate your eggs if you are not a neutral lover like me!
I painted these to match these beautiful napkins I found at HomeGoods.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. Especially tablescapes. I love bunnies and decorate year round with them. Here is a link to a post with several tablescape ideas for Easter. This post is a must see, it’s got a coastal feel tablescape, one where I use a vintage quilt as a tablecloth and more!
