Vintage Jello Mold Centerpiece for Easter

I'm excited to share a new project made using parts from a project I've made before.

For this project, I began with a very chippy board from my workshop. 

The chippier the better!

found it on the beach a while back, it may have even been part of a boat after the hurricane we had here.

I love all the chippiness but I wanted to wax the piece so the chips wouldn't get all over my house. 

I used a white wax by Miss Mustard Seed then buffed it with an old shoe shine brush. 

The next step was similar to the speckled egg bowl I made recently. 

I used a blue spray stain then rubbed it into the white wax to give my chippy board a blueish tint.

Next, I attach the jello cups to the board by screwing through the holes I had drilled in the bottom of the cups.  

I filled each cup with crinkled brown craft paper.

I added faux flowers around the cups with a few drops of hot glue.

When it was finished I filled the cups with speckled eggs

My chippy Spring table centerpiece was now ready for the Easter table.

And... I realized that this chippy board fit perfectly inside this metal basket on my coffee table too.

These cute little chocolate bunny molds look right at home here too.
