Simple and Pretty Spoon Egg Holder

I know it’s a bit early for Easter crafts, but I wanted to give you enough time to start collecting vintage spoons, the primary supply for this easy to make egg holder arrangement.

To do this project, find straight side bottles and jars. I used the milk glass cosmetic jar and clear spice bottle.

Collect various inexpensive spoons from thrift stores and flea markets (I prefer pretty vintage ones).

Bend the bowls of the spoons at the neck at a 90º angle.

Rubberband the jar and slide spoons under the bands, keeping in mind that if you space them too close, the eggs may not fit.

Pull out your vintage ribbon…

and tie around the jar to hide the bands.

Add pretty flowers and enough water to keep them fresh.

Then add the eggs. My eggs are courtesy of the cute little Holden hens, but of course you can use colored and decorated eggs as well.

You can also make these into candle holders for your Easter table.Slip a vintage plate or platter under to make the arrangement just a bit more grand.

How easy was that?!

    A new follower, just figured the whole thing out! But I had been admiring your blog for quite a while.. I remember dying Easter eggs as a child. My mother would bend her spoons but never set them up in such a pretty way. Thanks for the memories. I would love to have you stop over and visit my new blog sometime, your button is added.

    Wow, Cathe! You never cease to amaze me! These are beautiful! If only I had kept the Araucana pullets instead of the roos I too could have had pretty blue eggs to decorate with…. long story….

    What a great idea Cathe! You could also put those Cadbury creme eggs in the spoons instead of real eggs.

  20. #19 - MCatherine says:

    I remember years ago when I was making wind chimes out of old silverware. I asked my mother-in-law if she had any old silver she would like me to fashion into a windchime for her and she handed me 5 forks. 20 years later I inherited the Fraces 1st Sterling and it was missing 5 forks! LOL

  86. #86 - Laura Truitt says:

    I am so excited to find your blog! Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a studio of my own! I love this idea! I did a kitchen shower last fall with table arrangements similar to this! I took tall straight-sided vases and used kitchen utensils around the vase. The bride’s colors were blue and silver and I got lucky and found utensils at the dollar store that had blue handles and the working parts were metal. I used a spatula, slotted and not slotted spoons, a pasta stirrer thing-a-ma-jig, and another non slotted spatula and positioned them around the vase with the angle of the utensils flaring out at the top. I tied blue ribbon with silver glitter polka dots around the vases and filled them with blue hydrangeas. They were given as prizes for the games played at the shower. I love your blog and will certainly be visiting often for inspiration! Thank you!

  87. #87 - Keith Hardy says:

    This is one of the best ideas I’ve seen in a long time. Such a simple, yet beautiful way to show off Easter eggs. I think it’s just as pretty without the eggs!!

  88. #88 - Ellen Jones says:

    Oh now I have to do that project too. It’s so easy and creative, love it. For some reason this time of year I get so inspired and just don’t have enough time to make all the projects I see and think up. I love seeing all the wonderful crafts people are making. Long live crafting and using our imagination and reusing old things.
