Simple Centerpiece

     Every year the children and I enjoy creating a ‘colored-egg’ craft of some sort.  Typically, we do the conventional things with our eggs; eat them, hunt them, or simply make use of them in a recipe.  This year we decided to use our eggs to create a centerpiece for all to enjoy!

First we colored our eggs in a 1 cup vinegar to 4 drops of  green food color mixture.  For the lighter shades we used 1 drop of yellow food coloring; and for the darker 1 drop blue.  The difference in the hues are based on the varying removal times ranging from 1 min – 30 min pulls.

Secondly we arranged the dry eggs from light tones to dark filling our tall vase in various green hues.   Our container is 5 3/4″ in diameter, therefore, it took us about 4-5 larges eggs per circular row.

Lastly we inserted clippings from a full bloomed Dogwood tree to give the centerpiece height.

Super simple, low cost and fun for everyone!  Enjoy!
