Easter Egg Moss Topiary

By:

Decorate a moss topiary with naturally dyed Easter eggs. This quick and easy topiary designed by Terri O makes a wonderful Easter centerpiece.


Easter Egg Moss Topiary


Materials:

  • Terra cotta pot & Styrofoam cone (test to make sure the foam fits inside the pot and is not too big or too small)
  • Acrylic paint
  • Brushes
  • Floral pins
  • Moss
  • Dyed eggs
  • Glue gun (low heat setting)


Tips for Dyed Eggs

Learn how to naturally dye eggs here. There are many different recipes on line based on what colors you are after. I used things like spinach, beets and turmeric to get some of the colors. Have fun with this and try new things. Dye your eggs first then blow them out.

Instructions:

  1. Paint your pot and let dry. Add some rocks or something heavy to the bottom so it won’t tip over.
     
  2.  Insert the cone into the pot about one inch deep and glue.
     
  3. Cut up your moss into 2 inch squares.
     
  4.  Starting from the bottom secure the squares of moss onto the cone with floral pins. Leave a quarter size hole for the egg. Work one section at a time making sure you have enough eggs and they are spaced the way you like them.
     
  5. You will have a tendency to get one side heavier then the other so carefully plot your design.
     
  6. Glue the eggs into the empty spaces with a glue gun. Fill in any holes with moss.
