DIY Watercolor Easter egg name settings

A spring wedding is the perfect time to bring in the symbols of the season. These Easter egg name settings could be used for a rehearsal dinner, engagement party, the reception, or even a simple Easter dinner.

You will need: hardboiled eggs or eggs where the insides have been emptied, small terra cotta pots (2″ in diameter), moss, paint brush, gold pen, eggs, straight pins, acrylic or watercolor paint, water, cup

Step 1: Soak the eggs in water

Step 2: Add a bit of water into some acrylic paint in a cup.

Step 3: Dab some paint onto the wet egg with your brush and let the paint bleed.

Step 4: Write the name of your guest with a gold paint pen.

Step 5: Cut a piece of moss to the size of the pot and insert.

Step 6: Add straight pins into the moss to hold the egg in place.

Step 7: Add egg onto the moss.
