Target is one block away from my house. As many trips as I take in a week , I could probably be 10lbs lighter if I walked ever time I went.
This weekend while strolling through the Easter isle I stumbled across these $2 wood egg cups. I am not a huge egg eater, but thought they would be super cute to paint and plant succulents inside.
I pulled out a few of my favorite paint colors, a small paint brush and pretended I was in pastel wonderland.
I started off by painting the bottom, letting it fully dry before painting the top. I tried taping off each section using washi tape, but with the cup being round I found it was hard to get a perfect line.
Instead of taping each section, I ran my paint brush along the bottom edge and followed it around.
I had a few succulents sitting around the house that I recently bought just waiting to get planted . Luckily, they were individual steams, letting me separate them. And since the wood cups were small, it worked out great to have a the smaller stems.
With Easter just a week away these would be the cutest placement cards for your table. I used my typewriter , you could also use stamps or if you have fancy handwriting ( I don’t) write out your attendee’s names.
Once I had all my names typed out I attached each paper flag to a tooth pick. You can fold the paper however you like . I first folded my two ends and then cut a triangle from the ends to make a flag or banner shape.
Didn’t they turn out cute. They are beyond easy to make and can be done in an hours time. When It comes to holiday decorating I am all about easy and budget friendly. This projects is a definitely a win win for all.
