How to Repurpose a Dough Bowl for Easter

A styled Easter tray with a dough bowl repurpose with foam eggs and mini sheep. The Gift Gala Shop candle, white wood bird and white tray.

Easter is only a week away and I just finally got all of my decor up. 2022 is coming in extra hot and I’m getting whiplash from the ride (LOL). I was browsing Easter decor ideas on Pinterest and it dawned on me that I have this stunning heart shaped dough bowl left from the Valentine’s Day Candle Collection (get it at www.thegiftgalashop.com). I think, “How perfect, let’s repurpose a dough bowl for Easter! So, with no idea of what I wanted it to look like, off I went to Hobby Lobby. When I walked in there was one aisle of Easter goodies left and it was glowing like the holy grail. 47 minutes and 9 passes back and forth later, I had a whole hodge podge of stuff and still no clue what to do with it. I did know that I found the absolutely cutest mini ceramic sheep and they must be incorporated. 

Peep: I love all things miniature. From mini horses (Mazy, Chloe, Duke & Cardi B to be exact) to a tiny set of ceramic siamese kitties my mom gave me when I was just a wee lass, I collect all of the little things.

When I got home, I stared at the dough bowl and my adorable Easter decor finds, and this is what I came up with. I’m in love with this Easter Tray so much. Sometimes, simple is just better.

Gather your materials!

Materials List (under $10):

  1. Wooden Dough Bowl from The Gift Gala Shop
  2. Preserved Moss
  3. Mini Foam Eggs
  4. Mini Ceramic Sheep
  5. Knife or pliers to remove wicks
  6. Paper towel to wipe access wax out of dough bowl

Step 1 – Clean the Bowl Out

You’ll want to remove the wicks and wicktabs left over in the bowl plus any other metal or foreign objects. For easy wax removal, pop the bowl in the microwave for 30 second increments. After 2-3 bursts the wax should become soft or even liquid. Dump wax into the trash and wipe the bowl clean with a paper towel.

Step 2 – Add the Moss

I picked up a bag of preserved moss for $4.99 minus a 40% discount at Hobby Lobby. Score! You can add as much or as little moss as you prefer. Add sheets of crinkled up tissue paper or newspaper so you have more volume at the bottom of your bowl. The moss will sit beautifully right on top.

Add preserved moss & extra paper if needed

Step 3 – Add the Eggs

Line the edge of the bowl with the mini foam eggs. These cuties were another $4.99 purchase that ended up being discounted to $3 at Hobby Lobby. Have fun with this step. Feel free to place your eggs wherever you like.

Step 4 – Set the Cute Little Ceramic Sheep

These cute mini sheep were the inspiration of this whole project. I just love how precious they look tucked in the center of this lovely dough bowl.

An Easter Tradition Under $10

I cannot believe I was able to create this adorable focal piece for under $10! The preserved moss, foam eggs and mini ceramic sheep were originally $4.99, but marked down 40%. The total cost was roughly $7.50. What. a. win. This was such a fun, last minute project, I think it will be an exciting tradition to carry on for years to come.
