How to Make a Rustic Springtime Centerpiece

Hi Friends! Can you believe Easter is less than a week away? The seasons are just flying by! In case you are still fretting over how decorate your table for the big day, or maybe you just want something simple and pretty to chase away the winter blues, I'm showing you how to make this easy Rustic Springtime Centerpiece today.

Simple steps to making a Rustic Springtime Centerpiece.

First, let me just say that part of the reason this was so simple for me to put together was that my mom gave me the wooden box and milk bottles on our last trip to Lubbock. I've said it before and I'll say it again... I love that woman and the hand-me-downs she gives me. ;-)

Use old fence boards to make a long box for your centerpiece.

So, you'll want to start with a long wooden box. My dad made this one from old fence boards screwed together and painted a creamy color.

Milk bottles fill in for vases while moss fills in the spaces.

Next, place three milk bottles in the box, and fill in the extra space with crumpled up tissue paper. Lay some moss over the tissue paper to cover it and provide a bed for some eggs. I think mine may have been left over from when I made my Moss Covered Cross.

Moss forms nests for decorative eggs in this Rustic Springtime Centerpiece.

Rummage through your Easter box and round up several eggs to place on the moss. I used my Touch of Gold Eggs decorated with a gold Sharpie marker, Twine Wrapped Easter Eggs and Book Page Decoupage Eggs. You could also pick up some cute ones at the dollar store.

Once you have the base done for the centerpiece, changing out flowers is a breeze!

Finally, select some flowers to put in your milk bottles. I found these pretty little light yellow/dark yellow daffodils on a recent trip to Michael's. I went round and round trying to decide on what flowers to get. I do love daffodils, but couldn't decide if I wanted yellow ones or white ones. So, I compromised. 

Love how cheery the light yellow daffodils are in this Rustic Springtime Centerpiece.

What's great about this little centerpiece is that I can easily switch out the faux flowers for real ones if I find some on my next trip to Trader Joe's. (I just love their fresh flowers... beautiful and reasonable.)

This sweet Rustic Springtime Centerpiece is the perfect decoration for a casual get together with friends.

That's it! I love coming into the dining room and being greeted by this cheery arrangement. I'm all set to have coffee with friends. Won't you join me?
