Easter Egg Topiaries!

Just in case you missed this at Red Heads Craft More Fun!

I wanted to share with y'all my two Easter topiaries!






I bought all of my supplies from Michael's
2 small styrofoam balls
2 sticks (I bought a pack of 8)
3 packs of sparkle Easter eggs(I love all things that sparkle, my dogs name is Sparkles), 2 small hydrangea
2 Easter buckets
glue gun, screwdriver


I painted my sticks brown and then I pushed the ball on the stick. 
Take your glue gun (I don't know about you, but I love mine. ) and start glueing the eggs on the styrofoam ball.

It's O.K. that you can still see some of the styrofoam.  That's what the flowers are for.

I used a small screwdriver to push the flowers into the styrofoam.
I put floral foam in my bucket and placed the topiary in the foam.  I added a ribbon and Easter grass to cover up the foam.

Now you have two Easter egg topiaries!  These were really easy and I think they turned out great!

I'm joining these great parties HERE
