This is my second Easter Centerpiece. We had a pretty bad earthquake last year right after Easter and most of my Easter decorations were lost. So while I was very sad to lose that pretty vase it did give me an excuse to try this Easter craft again this year with a new type of vase and in a different color scheme. I’m not sure, but I think I like this pink and purple Easter Centerpiece even better.
How to Make an Easter Centerpiece
- Clear glass vase
- Artificial flowers
- Easter colored M&M’s
- Peep Easter Bunny candies
- Skewers or Cake Pop Sticks
This new vase is pretty big and it would take too many bags of M&M’s to fill it up so I put a ramekan in the middle of the vase and set a smaller vase on top of the ramekin to fill up some of the space. I used the smaller vase to hold the stems of my artificial flowers but this would also be a great idea if you wanted to use fresh flowers. Just fill the mini vase up with water, and you are good to go.
I pulled out all of the pink M&M’s from a couple bags of the Easter colored M&M’s that you can buy at this time of year and filled the bottom of the vase with them. Then I added a row of white Peeps Bunnies
Then I added another smaller row of pink M&M’s, followed by a row of darker pink M&M’s that I had left over from Valentine’s. You can also buy these colors of M&M’s separately at Amazon or at Party City. Finally, I added a few white M&M’s for some contrast. The M&M’s stopped at the top of the mini vase that I had in the center. Once I had the candy arranged the way I wanted it, I added my artificial flowers.
Here is a detailed picture of the layers of candy in the Easter Centerpiece. If the M&M’s fall down into the Peeps, just use a knife to rearrange them.
Finally, I stuck a couple of Peeps Bunnies on BBQ skewers that I had painted green and added to the arrangement so they were sticking up out of the flowers. So cute!
This is a really fun Easter Craft. It’s both a great Easter Decoration and a cute centerpiece for Easter Brunch or Dinner. And it’s really easy to make!
