Last fall, I bought this large apothecary jar from Home Goods and immediately filled it with gourds and acorns. Then at Christmas, I filled it will shiny Christmas tree ornaments.
Unfortunately, it has sat empty since we took the Christmas decorations down in January!! I had aspirations to fill it with hearts in February…that didn’t happen.
Now, at the very last minute, I finally filled it with something Easter/Springish. I knew I wanted to fill it with eggs, but finding the right ones at the right price was more difficult than I thought.
Finally, I found these unfinished paper mache-type eggs at Michael’s the other night and decided to decorate them myself. They were only $1.99/6-pack!
With a little craft paint, some foam brushes and an old toothbrush (and a LOT tweaking!), this is what I ended up with.
I thought that a dozen eggs would fill the jar up, but it looked a little stark. So, I added some Spanish moss to the bottom of the jar to get a fuller look.
I kept the eggs more neutral and less pastel/Easter so that I can keep them in the jar longer. Looking back at my track record with this jar, I thought longevity was key. ;)
Hope you enjoyed my little last minute Spring project!
