While shopping on Sunday, I saw these beautiful Easter egg topiaries from Williams-Sonoma.
I think they are such a beautiful way to add a bit of Easter decor, but the price tag is not exactly budget friendly. So with my 40% off coupon in hand, I wen to Michael's to try and replicate my own! I used the following supplies:
1. Hot glue (I recommend low temp so you don't burn your hand like I did!)
2. Styrofoam cone, any size will do, depending on the type of topiary you want to make
3. Plastic eggs (I found natural looking eggs that do not open in the Easter section of Michaels)
4. Bag of green or brown moss
Begin by hot gluing the eggs to the bottom row of the cone. Ensure you hold the egg to the styrofoam until it is set, otherwise they will fall off. Work your way up to the top of the topiary staggering smaller and larger eggs. Ensure that you leave enough space between them to fill the areas with moss, 1/2 - 1 inch is plenty.
Then hot glue one of the larger eggs to the top of the topiary. If your styrofoam cone is very pointy at the top, cut off a few inches to give the egg a more solid base.
Take small pieces of the moss and hot glue them to the styrofoam in between the eggs. This part was pretty messy so I recommend doing it over news paper!
Here are the final products! I made two of these to go on top of two large candle sticks that we have in our dining room. As you can see, I still clearly need to work on setting up my Easter table!
I hope you enjoyed this fun and inexpensive project! Have a great Tuesday loves! xoxo Meggan
