A beautifully crafted spring centerpiece is essential for the Easter table.

We fell in love with the idea of origami paper maché because of their vibrant hues, brilliant texture and malleability for the project.

Mix and match the origami papers to construct paper maché eggs for displaying your favorite spring florals.
