Daisy Eggs Centerpiece

This giant daisy egg was a design idea I created as a table centerpiece for Good Housekeeping magazine.  A fresh idea and so easy to make.  It will last longer than you think, many years actually,  since the daisies are artificial flowers from the crafts store!

Carve an 8 or 9" high egg shape from a floral foam block or purchase  a large styrofoam egg.

You will need approximately 50 artificial daisy heads ( many stems have multiple heads)

Cut the head with wire cutters approximately 1/2" below the flower head.

Push the stem into the styrofoam.

Repeat with each flower placing them closely together so the styrofoam is completely covered until the entire egg is covered in daisies.

Place the egg in a small white bowl as a base to hold your daisy egg upright.
