Easter Tomb Centerpiece Supplies

We were able to find all of the items used in our sample picture at our local Dollar Tree store. Our total cost for this centerpiece was around $5 – a great value for such a meaningful and decorative piece!
Easter Tomb Centerpiece Directions
- Begin by creating a layer of rocks in the terra cotta dish.
- Lay the small flower pot on its side, directly off to the side of the dish.
- Start covering the plate and pot with craft moss. You want it to look like a hill with land surrounding it.
- Help secure the moss in place by laying some more pebbles over it. Focus on laying pebbles around the base of the pot and around the edges of the plate.
- You now want to create your crosses. Cut several pieces of brown pipe cleaner and twist them to make crosses. We made one larger cross and two smaller crosses to place by its side.
- Secure the crosses into the ground by simply pressing them down into the plate. The moss and rocks should secure them.
You can add extra touches to your centerpiece by laying a piece of linen in the empty tomb to look like the shroud. You can also place a larger rock in front of the tomb to look like the stone that was rolled away. It is a great way to discover and celebrate the true meaning of Easter.
