If you have been reading this blog for anytime now, you know how much I love topiaries. Egg topiaries are not new, but I wanted a fresh Robin’s egg blue.
I started with a basic double ball Styrofoam topiary form, scored for $1.99. (any shape will work)
I used the painted plastic Easter eggs and started hot gluing them on the Styrofoam. (put the glue on the egg, not the Styrofoam, push it onto the foam and hold it for a second while it sets)
I used the larger size on bottom and a smaller size up top. I tried to have them point in random directions.
After I had filled in as many gaps as possible with the eggs, it was time for the moss.
I put very generous amounts of hot glue between the eggs.
I used a brown filler moss (from the Dollar Tree) on top of the bright green Spanish moss.
I stuck it in a pot, and covered the base in the brown moss.
Here are a few detailed shots.
I completed the look with a mirrored Christmas topiary, a little Pier One mossy bunny in a galvanized watering pail and a blue bird from the Dollar Tree. I plan on showing you the rest of this vignette tomorrow!
