  1. 1

    Select colorful flowers from your garden or the flower shop. Carnations, primroses, pansies, calendulas and similarly flat-faced flowers work well for this project.

  2. 2

    Soak a block of floral foam in a basin of water until it sinks to the bottom.

  3. 3

    Carve the soaked block of foam into an egg shape, leaving the base of the egg flat.

  4. 4

    Place the shaped foam, flat side down, into a shallow, waterproof container such as a platter.

  5. 5

    Insert flower stems into the foam, beginning at one end of the egg shape. The flowers should have short stems so that the blossoms rest directly on the foam.

  6. 6

    Cover the entire block of foam, including the sides, with flowers. Create stripes, dots and patterns with the flowers.

  7. 7

    Place some plastic Easter basket grass around the base of your arrangement to complete the effect of a giant floral egg.

  8. 8

    Use your Easter egg as a centerpiece or to grace your holiday buffet table.

Tips and warnings

  • Use flowers of roughly equal size for the most elegant effect.
