How to make a planter with an Easter egg

The pastel colors associated with Easter promote feelings of warmth and relaxation. In terms of decor, many families prepare for the holiday by decorating with eggs painted in soft colors. If the colors of plastic store-bought eggs do not complement your home decor, consider painting white plastic eggs in pastel colors.
Since Easter typically falls in April, and the holiday symbolizes new life, it's common to showcase plants and flowers. Consider adding a unique DIY Easter planter to home decor. This budget-friendly holiday craft will make a fun family activity.
