Woodgrain (faux bois) Easter Table

I love coming up with a bit of a different concept each year for Easter. You’ve seen my Earthy Easter, Carrot Easter, Egg-stra Special Easter, and Dip-Dyed Ombre Easters in the past.  This year inspiration struck when I saw the new line of stencils from Plaid by blogger friend Amy Anderson of Mod Podge Rocks. She has several on-trend patterns to choose from, but I loved the idea of incorporating the woodgrain on into my Easter decor, giving that feeling of nature, plus a little glittery glam.

I wanted to keep the details light and fresh so I chose yellow white and orange accents to go with my woodgrain details. I did two projects for this table using the woodgrain stencil. I made napkin rings and a glittery woodgrain vase.

Mod Podge Stencil project

1) I bought a piece of inexpensive PVC pipe and had BSB saw them into pieces 1 1/2″ tall.

2) I spray painted the PVC pipe and a cylindrical vase I had on hand with a buff colored spray paint (w/primer). And let dry.  If you want more of a distinct distinguishable pattern, you should probably allow a full day for the paint to dry. I was in a hurry and didn’t wait that long so my woodgrain is more subtle as some of the glitter stuck to the paint, but I kind of like it this way.

3) The stencil has adhesive and is flexible so it wrapped around my surfaces as I applied the Mod Podge.

4) Add glitter! My husband wishes I hadn’t done this technique, but I love how glitter takes the wood grain look and fancies it up a notch.

Here are my projects in action.

I filled my woodgrain vase with some tall sprigs of faux blossoms and pussy willows, almost like a branching tree. If you have blossoming tree sprigs–even better! I clipped a couple of colorful butterflies to the stems.

My new faux bois napkin holders accent some fun yellow napkins that coordinate with the yellow paper tablecloth.

Some cool gold woodgrain wrapping paper ties it all together. If I get time before I re-create this table for our actual Easter dinner, I will cut butterfly-shaped place cards and put them in the tines of the fork to add just a little more Spring-time whimsy.
