Spring has officially arrived and we couldn’t be happier! Spring brings new crafts, new recipes, new holidays and Easter. We’re getting a head start this year by making this pretty pastel mini eggs topiary. Being made with mini eggs, its a treat for your eyes and your sweet-tooth. We snuck more than one mini egg while putting this project together!

What you’ll need:
- Small clay pot
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Small Styrofoam ball
- Paper straw
- Easter ribbon
- Hot glue gun and sticks
- A little bit of Spanish moss
- Floral foam
- Utility or craft knife
- A few bags of mini eggs
Dry-brush the acrylic paint onto your clay pot. To get this effect, dip a small amount of paint onto your brush and then dab off most of that paint onto a paper towel before using small, quick brushstrokes onto the clay pot.
Using the knife, cut your floral foam down to fit inside the clay pot. It’s good if the foam is slightly larger than the pot so that when you push it in it fits snugly inside. Then push the paper straw into the Styrofoam ball to form the topiary base.
Start gluing the mini eggs onto the Styrofoam ball and continue until you cover the entire ball. Put the hot glue onto the eggs instead of the foam so the foam doesn’t melt. Once all the eggs are attached, push the paper straw into the floral foam that inside the clay pot.
Finally, cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around the paper straw to complete your Mini Egg topiary.
