Easter Centerpiece

Egg candle centerpiece
I put together this Easter centerpiece shown here on my old butcherblock. I have since moved it to my sunroom and placed it in the center of our vintage white iron dining table to welcome guests for Spring. I saw this in a magazine a couple of years ago, then added my own ideas. I actually made one last year in a different container, and the grandsons loved it. Start with a bowl, turneen or favorite pot. I put some bubblewrap in the bottom of my transferware casserole, then made a bed of some live moss from the woods. Using brown egg shells washed out after cooking the eggs, I put tea lights in many of the shells, and turned others over for "color". I lit the candles for my birthday in March, but will light again!
