Easter Egg Topiary


I love making topiaries! To me, they add a tasteful and exquisite element to any decor! And creating an Easter egg topiary is a great way to highlight the holiday while adding a wow factor to your decorations!

It really doesn't take much to make an egg topiary:
- Styrofoam ball (6")
- Eggs (assorted colors and size)
- Hot glue gun
- Straight branch stick
- Container
- Floral foam
- Raffia/grass
- Moss
Begin by cutting off a straight stick from a fallen branch, adding hot glue to the end and inserting it into the styrofoam ball. Next, add glue to the eggs first (hot glue will melt styrofoam) and press them randomly but uniformly on the ball.

After all the eggs are glued on, insert moss into the spaces between the eggs using a skewer stick or something similar that's handy.

Next, glue the floral foam inside the container and after drying, add additional glue to the end of the branch stick and insert into the floral foam/container. And finally, tie a raffia bow around the base of the egged ball and add raffia grass and eggs to the top of the container. For a touch of whimsy, I put a cute little rabbit figurine in the grass.

The different colors of the eggs, along with the raffia and moss creates a very natural looking topiary!

So beautiful and perfect for Easter!
