This display idea can be used as a organic-style decoration on your dinner, buffet or coffee table at Easter. The squares of faux green grass are available at many craft stores (from 4”- 12” square) and range in price from $5-$14.  s_Kitchen_chandelier & clay pots3

This fun green grass creates so much versatility for your Spring & Easter decorating! As you can see in the photo, I have loaded up 3 clay pots with the green stuff as a low centerpiece (low to create ease of conversation across the table.)
DIRECTIONS: If your container choice is deep (as in the clay pots pictured on the right), first fill them with green styrofoam blocks (cut to fit) to use up the excess depth. Place a 4” faux grass square in the center of the pot. Fill in any spots, where you can still see the green foam, with individual pieces of thefaux grass, pulled from a spare square of grass. You can also add ribbon around the lip of each clay pot or even paint them. For a final decorative touch, tuck in flowers & Robin’s eggs throughout the grass.
BONUS IDEAS: position the pots on top of large faux leaves, usually available @ craft or floral supply stores, for an extra touch. Other faux grass container options: clay pot saucers, baskets, (handyman) rectangular aluminum mud pans (found in D.I.Y. stores) or planters of any shape or size.  If you want to add the faux chocolate bunnies into your design, they are easy to find at

    Where did you find the little daisies and robin eggs?

  2. Toni says:

    Are those chocolate or painted bunnies?

    • Eileen says:

      Toni, they are faux bunnies… purchased at a store. You could also use the real bunnies though. Enjoy the Creativity! Eileen

    I hot glued my ribbon to the clay pot and it looks bad. Just wondering how you did it?

    • Eileen says:

      Was your ribbon wired Toni? If so, use “unwired” ribbon. Also, you don’t need much hot glue… just dots along the rim… then attach the ribbon to a dot & pull it tight to the next dot of glue. Hope that helps! Happy Easter, Eileen
