Thrifty Easter centerpiece

It’s going be a fun Easter! Even more so this year because I’m determined to keep costs down by DIY-ing a lot of it myself.

So far I’ve already been able to set up a sweets display at home. 

I bought cotton candy from a local grocery store and divided it into smaller portions, cotton candy balls to be exact.

I then individually wrapped each one of these.

The stand was made with rolled up card stock paper, secured by tape. I pierced the stand with a box cutter and then inserted the stick from the cotton candy ball. I also made a small amount of plaster to secure the blue spray-painted tree branch upright.

Ribbon for this project was purchased at a local Dollar Tree, as were the styrofoam eggs. The cake stand I bought at a thrift store last year. That’s where I picked up the milk glass and cup too.

I bought the pink and green garland at a dollar store also.

Finally, the candy was purchased at local wholesale sweets store.

In total, for everything I spent between $30 to $35.

I hope you like the result. 

Happy Easter!
