Add flair to your table with these DIY projects

You've got your menu planned, your kids' adorable dresses and suits picked out and their Easter gifts tucked away. Then, the morning of Easter brunch, you realize you don't have a centerpiece to bring your food and decor together! Don't fret, we've all been there. Instead, make your own beautiful centerpiece with these simple, budget-friendly and super-quick DIY projects. Your guests will swoon, your kids will love it and you'll smile knowing you spent less than $20.

Glittery egg & flower centerpiece

These adorable centerpieces are the perfect way to tie together your entire Easter brunch table (and one of these centerpieces is partly edible). Save time this year while still wowing your guests with these easy and simple DIYs.

Glittery egg & flower centerpiece

Note: Hard-boiled eggs spoil quickly (about 6 hours after boiling) so store the dried, glittered eggs in the fridge and put centerpieces together right before you dine. Or you can also blow out raw eggs -- the shells can last indefinitely.

This stunning centerpiece is a great way to use all of those hard-boiled eggs you made with your kids. The glittery eggs pair elegantly with the fresh flowers. For a small table, you really only need one of these beautiful bowls to create an impact. If your table is much longer, two or three of these will make perfect statement pieces. Spread them out and place a few milk-glass vases filled with two or three blooms for an even more gorgeous centerpiece!

What you'll need: 

  • 6-12 hard-boiled eggs
  • Small or medium glass or white bowl
  • Egg dye
  • Glitter
  • Craft glue

How to make it: 

Liberally paint eggs with craft glue and roll in shallow bowls of glitter. Let the eggs dry for an hour. Once dry, place the eggs in the bottom of a shallow bowl and add fresh flowers around them, creating a nest. Chill in the fridge before using.

Candy-filled centerpiece

Note: Because the flowers can dry out quickly, assemble right before guests arrive.

This festive, cute and edible centerpiece will be a huge hit at your Easter party, especially with the children! Made using a glass vase (something you might already have at home), a few bags of pastel Easter candy and your favorite flowers, this is as easy as it is elegant. You can completely customize this based on your preferences and the vases you have. You can create a lush three-piece candy centerpiece by using three different-size vases, fill old milk bottles for a longer, leaner look or stick with an ornate etched vase for something more sophisticated. Whatever you do, you'll be sure to get compliments and will have the kids begging you to help them clean up.

Candy filled centerpieceWhat you'll need:

  • Glass vase
  • Your favorite flowers
  • Plastic wrap
  • 3 - 5 bags of Easter candy (depending on the size of the vase)

How to make it: 

This DIY is so simple, it requires less than 10 minutes. Simply fill a third of the vase with your favorite candy (you can layer by type or mix all together). Cut the stems of the flowers so they fit nicely in the vase. Wrap the stems with plastic wrap and place securely into the candy. Fill the rest of the vase with candy around the flowers. Easy and beautiful!

Wheatgrass centerpiece

Wheatgrass is one of the most commonly displayed plants during Easter because it's so easy to grow -- but if you're prepping a last-minute centerpiece, that's not an option. Luckily, most supermarkets or floral shops will have plenty of wheatgrass for sale so you can pick up a bundle for relatively cheap. So how do you decorate a classy Easter tablescape with grass? This tutorial, provided by Keep It Simple, Sister, arranges this sprouting plant in gorgeous vintage tea cups and also shows you how to create a beautiful, lush wreath.

Wheatgrass centerpieceWhat you'll need: 

  • Multiple bundles of wheat grass (to grow your own, click here for information!)
  • Vintage tea cups, medium flower pots or bowls
  • Grosgrain ribbon
  • Dessert stand
  • Paper towels
  • Plastic or paper plate
  • Glue
