Not too long ago, Matthew McConaughey’s wife Camila Alves (who is now the founder of WOMEN OF TODAY) wowed us with her fun Easter decor that all came from a dollar store -- now she’s sharing her brand new (and impressive!) crafts that won’t break the bank! Check them out below.
Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs
These eggs are so pretty and intricate, they look like only an Easter egg-decorating expert could pull them off -- but they’re actually quite simple and the kids can help out, too! Camila boiled some blueberries (which believe it or not turn a reddish, purple color!) and strained the berries from the juice. That becomes the dye for the eggs! Check out the video above to see how she made the beautiful designs on the eggs!
Antique Silver Easter Eggs
These eggs were decorated with nothing more than tinfoil, glue and black paint. Literally. Camila took small squares of aluminum foil and glued them onto the eggs! Just make sure when you do this, you put the shiny side of the foil on the outside. To get that antique effect, she rubbed a little bit of black acrylic paint on the egg. Your guests will ooohhh and aaahhh over the prettiness!

Floral Ice Bucket
Grab any old ice bucket, fill it with an inch or two of water, submerge flowers in it and let it freeze. Once frozen, fill a deli container about 3/4 of the way to the top (so it doesn’t explode in the freezer!). Place it in the middle of the ice bucket, surround with more flowers, fill with MORE water and freeze. Once it’s frozen and you take it out of the ice bucket, you’ll get a pretty, floral centerpiece that you can chill wine or any beverage in.
Last-Minute Easter Table Decor
If you’ve got a few cake stands and pretty glasses or mason jars, then you’ve got yourself one heck of an Easter tablescape! Fill the jars with fresh flowers, stack the cakestands and surround them with your new mini flower vases.
