I love topiaries, they have a beautiful pop of green and provide an upscale yet relaxed feel that works in almost any room. I saw some very expensive Easter Egg Topiaries and I thought....hmmm....let me see if I can DIY one for half the cost! I partnered with Eclectic, makers of Unicorn SPiT and E6000 for this fun challenge! I was thrilled by how it turned out and it was the perfect edition to my Spring She-Shed refresh.
Check out how easy it is to make your very own Easter Egg Topiary!
- Unicorn SPiT (select your favorite colors and white to create pastels)
- E6000 Plus
- Styrofoam Eggs (I used 7cm eggs)
- Styrofoam Cone (I used a 12" x 5")
- Reindeer Moss
- Crinkle (to stuff the vase)
- Paint Brush
- Plastic or Paper Plate for Paint Mixing
- Craft Knife
Unicorn SPiT is available at Michaels, Walmart and a variety of other craft stores. You can find E6000 pretty much anywhere adhesives are sold. E6000+ works great on a variety of surfaces including styrofoam.
Fun Fact: Unicorn SPiT has a jasmine scent which give off relaxation vibes! Not to mention it is multi-surface and fast drying!
- Use a craft knife to cut each styrofoam egg in half. The amount you will need will depend on the size of your styrofoam cone. I used a 12"x 5" cone and I needed 16 egg halves.
- For this project I wanted to use pastel colors so I mixed a small amount of my favorite Unicorn SPiT colors into Unicorn SPiT White Ning. I used Pixie Pink Punk, Purple Hill Majesty, and Lemon Kiss.
- Paint each egg half and let it dry. I did 2 coats of paint.
- Fill the vase with a crinkle or another stuffing.
- My cone fit nicely wedged into my vase. You can always glue the cone into the vase if needed.
- I used E6000+ to glue my egg halves around the cone leaving space in between each egg.
- Next fill in the spaces between the eggs by gluing reindeer moss to the cone. You want to fill in all the empty space so you do not see the cone anymore.
TADA!! You very own Easter Egg Topiary!! I LOVE how this turned out! It is perfect for my she-shed!
