Easter Egg Topiary Tree

These Easter egg topiary trees have a picture-perfect, cool-toned color palette thanks to Robin egg blues and mossy greens. Your handmade centerpieces are sure to leave your guests thoroughly impressed!

I found this over on Sand And Sisal.

Spring has officially arrived and I am so happy to say, “So long!” to old man winter. With Easter sneaking up on the calendar in just a couple weeks, I knew I had to get a move on for Easter decorating! I want this year’s Easter decor to be light and fresh, with soft hues of robin’s egg blues and mossy greens. 

How To Make an Easter Egg Topiary Tree

These are rather easy to make and I’ve put together a step-by-step tutorial for you. Let’s make some Easter Egg Topiaries!

You will need the following items (Amazon affiliate links provided for your shopping convenience from Sand And Sisal):

 

I found white coated plastic craft eggs at Michaels for $2.99/dozen. You will need 3 dozen for each topiary tree if you use a 9 inch tall cone. You could use paper mache eggs or even regular plastic fillable eggs if you want. I prefer the craft eggs because the seams on each egg are very minimal.

Step 1) Paint your eggs with a chalky finish paint (or any craft paint that you desire to use). I used Decor Art Chalky Finish Paint in the colors “Vintage” & “Serene”.  They can be found at most craft strores and HD. I painted 1 dozen in Vintage, 1 dozen in Serene and left 1 dozen plain white.

Why did I use the chalky finish paint? Well, for 3 reasons.

  1. It sticks to anything! So if you are going to use inexpensive plastic, fillable eggs then you will need to use chalk paint on them (or prime them 1st… pain in the rear).
  2. I love the velvety matte finish of chalk paint.
  3. I already had both colors on hand! (A little chalk paint goes a very, very long way).
Step 2) Time to add some robin’s egg speckles! Mix up a small amount of brown craft paint with water and dip an old toothbrush into the paint and splatter the eggs as much as you desire. Allow them to dry.

Step 3) Time to assemble the Easter egg topiary tree. Starting at the base of the cone and working your way around the cone and then upward, attaching the eggs to the cone with hot glue. The cones have a flat top, so be sure to glue one egg to the very top of your cone.

Step 4) Rip off small pieces of both Spanish Moss & Green Moss and tuck them into the open spaces on the Easter Egg topiary tree. Use a chopstick or pencil to help push the moss inward. Use hot glue anywhere you feel necessary to secure the moss.

To display my Easter Egg Topiary Trees I just rested them on top of two white planters that I picked up at Michaels for $2.30 each! I am thrilled with how they turned out. They are perfect for my Easter Centerpiece. I hope you give this Easter craft a try!
