This spring, we’re bringing Easter to the table with a showstopper piece that is inspiring and oh-so-cute. Think lush pieces of moss, faux succulents and air plants, and dyed eggs in pretty pastel shades. Not one for thinking inside the box, we’re making a terrarium centerpiece (or four) that celebrates spring and the coming of all things new and fresh.
Before you begin to hatch your Easter Terrarium Centerpiece plan, we recommend reading through our guide on how to create a terrarium (in just six steps—no more, no less!). The guide walks you through the simple process of gathering your terrarium materials, using rocks for drainage, absorbing moisture with materials, using potting soil, and adding plants and other decorative accents.
After reading our guide, Easter-ize your terrarium with pretty pieces that bring out the best—and sweetest—creatures of the season. (Think sisal critters, felt chicks, and of course, candy eggs galore!)
Remember to arrange your terrariums in a group of three at the center of the table. Fill the centerpiece “space” with moss along the length of the table and accent with your decorative candy eggs.
How to make eggshell plant pots:
- Using a needle or straight pin, poke a hole in the egg; from this hole, carefully remove the top of the egg. This will be the opening for planting, so make sure you like how it looks, and that it is big enough to fill with dirt and a plant.
- Discard the yolk and egg white—or make a quiche!
- Carefully rinse the shell.
- Use the tablespoon to fill the shell with potting soil; nestle the plant roots in soil; add water to moisten.
- Tuck the egg pots into the terrarium, or in egg cartons and ceramic egg cups for a more rustic display.
Enjoy—and get crackin’ on that Easter terrarium!
