Easy for you too do for your Easter table
Too late to grow the grass of course but would look great made with moss either from the garden or from a bag at a craft store ....The Tomb is made from a small plastic or terra-cotta plant pot laying on it's side ...You are able to get very small terra-cotta ones from Michaels Craft Store in the USA or most crafts stores would have them I would think
A Terracotta plant pot saucer was also used as the base but you could use a suitable bowl from in your kitchen or a plastic plant pot saucer...fill it with soil and push your little flower pot Tomb a little way in to the soil ...hot glue the moss on to the top of the Tomb and around the area just as in this photo ..
Use some pea gravel or natural colored aquarium gravel would be great or tiny ornament pebbles ...and make a little area of gravel such as in the photo ...but having said that make this your own and use your artistic talents and imagination ..then find a good pebble to represent the stone that was rolled away from the Tomb to reveal that Jesus had Risen
Finally go outside and cut some twigs off of a suitable bush or tree and make the three Crosses ..securing in the middle with either fine twine, raffia, or even wool would do...
Step back and admire your creation ...
It will be a talking point and everyone will admire your clever handy work
Don't forget to leave a 'comment' and tell us all how your got on with making yours
Your Guest could then have them as a gift and take them home with them ...create a smile
Isn't this too cute
A Chocolate Rabbit
Screw top Jar such as a Mason Jar
Some kind of shredded paper
Basket filler or even Shredded Coconut
That you have colored Grass Green
A pretty ribbon or twine or wool to tie around the top
Now you have lovely decorations for your Easter table
One on each plate perhaps with a Gift Tag that you downloaded and made from one of my previous Free downloads for Gift Tags (see them in the Gift Tag Categories)
Using decorative Bird Nests is always a good idea
Fill them with edible delicious chocolate eggs
Place them on each place setting on the napkin would be great
And your guests can take them home or eat them
Make great Place Name's too ..a card & write a name
I love my Glass Domes and I use them for all sorts of ideas and seasons
But I especially like to put my decorative bird nests in them
At Easter and Spring time
Just add a tiny butterfly too
For extra cuteness
Just hot glue it and be careful to trim it a little down the votive with scissors as in my photo so that it doesn't become a fire hazard ...
Never leave real candle flames unattended ...
Some pretty Spring flowers such as these daffodils
Would look great in a glass jar such as a Mason jar
Fill the bottom with either small limes or lemons or slices of these fruits
Glass pebbles would be great and put in the flowers and water ..
Wrap with some burlap of a color of your choice
Then finish off with a lovely co-ordinating ribbon
Hot glue this all if you wish
If you don't like to see the stems through the glass
Cover the entire jar with burlap or your favorite
Then you would not need the limes, lemons or pebbles as they will no longer be seen
Again make it yours ..use your creative imagination
But most of all I hope they have inspired you to create
And make a very memorable Easter meal with your love ones
Making your home pretty and filled with your own creations
I guarantee with make you smile
Easter time is full of smiles ...in every way
Above all have fun and enjoy creating
But let all of this come with a warning
It's VERY addictive
