Vintage Jello Mold Centerpiece for Easter

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

Vintage Jello Mold Centerpiece for Easter
Several years ago I made an office organizer using vintage jello cups and an old board.
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.
