This beautiful Easter Egg Topiary is a showstopper for your Easter Decor. You can make it effortlessly using your kid’s empty Kinder Surprise Egg container.
My sister kept my niece’s empty Surprise Egg container—especially the big ones. At least we don’t have to buy plastic eggs every year for my niece’s egg hunting.
This year I decided to borrow one of the giant eggs and decided to turn into a decorative Easter egg – a topiary Easter egg, or I will also call it a flowerful egg. The result is beautiful and a perfect centrepiece for your Easter setup.
Except for this year, due to Coronavirus, you can’t have an Easter party. But it doesn’t mean we can’t decorate our house. Actually we are in a situation where we need to lift our spirits. If decorating makes you happy, then go grab your scissor and cardstocks and make this easy DIY Easter egg project.
By the way, though you don’t need a special tool, I would say a Cricut machine comes very handy in this project.
How to Make an Easter Egg Topiary
- Cardstocks (at least three different shades of a colour)
- Glittered cardstock
- Hot glue
- Green Painter’s Tape (Optional)
- Cricut machine
Download the flower template (png or svg format) and cut it using a Cricut machine. You can cut it manually using scissors if you don’t have a cutting tool.
Use papers at least three different shade of the colour of your choice.
To give the flower a volume, rub it using foam and an object with a rounded end. I used a big paintbrush and a wrist rest. You can also use a mouse pad.
Use puncher to make the round glittered paper and place it in the center of the flower.
(Optional) If you want to reuse the plastic egg for next year, it is better to cover it with painter’s tape.
Secure each flower on the egg using hot glue.
Finally, put it on top of a container (I used an old candle holder)
Now you have a very beautiful Easter Egg Topiary… and who will think it’s the Kinder Surprise egg?
