I was trying to brainstorm some Easter decor projects for the upcoming holiday and came up with this retro DIY Easter lamb planter! For this project you will need a hot glue gun, vintage pastel lamb planter (possibilities are endless if you look on Etsy, like this one), pastel colors of felt, a dry foam brick, and various millinery flowers (see here and here), berries, faux eggs, etc.
1. Cut your green dry foam brick so that you have a square that fits inside your planter. It can be slightly smaller than the circumference of the opening but be sure it is about the same height as the opening (as you will be hot gluing your supplies onto the brick).
2. Hot glue your foam brick to the bottom of the planter so it is secure.
3. Cut different sized circles out of various colors of felt. Then cut into spirals as shown below.
4. Create your felt flowers: from the tail of the spiral create a small crease and wind the felt around it. Use the center of your circle as the base and hot glue your spiral to the base.
5. Hot glue your flowers to the green brick until it is covered.
6. There will naturally be gaps between your flowers, fill these with your eggs, small millinery flowers, and berries.
TIP: I like to plan ahead and lay out my flowers and supplies on the brick as a test-run. Then I lift each individually to hot-glue them down (starting with the felt flowers).
And that’s it! You now have yourself a cute Easter planter that you can bring out every year for an Easter centerpiece!
