Crafting and blogging brings out a different me. I'm doing all sort of things that I never would have considered. When I made the stacked bunny boxes and did the spring mantel, my son actually commented on how nice everything looked. Oh my! I need to make something else! I love topiaries and having an egg topiary would really be delightful! Besides, I have a whole lot of eggs I need to do something with.
It doesn't take much to make a topiary:
- Styrofoam ball - 6inches
- Eggs - lots (two sizes, three colors)
- Glue gun
- Stick branch (cut to fit from yard)
- Container (filled with florist foam)
- Raffia (attached to the eggs)/grass
I first stuck the stick in the center of the styrofoam ball and glued it in place so I wouldn't glue eggs in that spot. Then I put the glue on the eggs first (hot glue melts styrofoam) and pressed them randomly but uniformly on the ball.
After gluing on the eggs, I inserted moss into the spaces between the eggs using a skewer stick.
Then I glued the stick into the florist foam and tied a raffia bow around it and added raffia grass and eggs to the container.
For a touch of whimsy, I put a cute little rabbit figurine in the grass.
The colors of pale yellow, deep yellow and light brown, along with the moss, makes this topiary very natural looking.
This is a great way to highlight the Easter holiday with a lovely egg topiary!
Until next time,
Have a Happy & Crafty Easter!
