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. ;-)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
