Easter egg topiary
I was inspired by THIS Hobby Lobby project to make an Easter egg topiary. However, I used different materials and made it my own. Here's my mini tutorial:
I started with a 2 7/8 x 7 7/8 inch cone from the Dollar Tree. I got mine during the Christmas season and never got around to the intended project. I also got some foam glitter egg ornaments and moss from the Dollar Tree.
I removed the ribbon hangers and cut the eggs in half. Leave one whole for the top. It only took one package doing it this way.
I glued the halves onto the cone with the glue gun. Then I filled in with the moss. Some people cover the cone with moss first. I don't this it matters. Glue a whole egg to the top. After I did that, I glued on some butterfly/flower picks that I got from Tuesday Morning. Just randomly space them to your liking. I also added some tiny flowers from Michael's. That's it. I didn't put mine in a pot or base. It sits flat and can be displayed on any pedastal I choose.
Here's another shot:
