Egg topiary tree tutorial

I fell in love with the Pottery Barn Easter egg topiary tree from my post. Unfortunately, as I live in the UK there was no chance of getting one. During a visit to Hobby Craft I noticed they were selling pots of small plastic eggs so I purchased two of them with the idea of making the tree in the same colours as my wooden bird houses. It took some working out, but I am pleased with the result.

I used the following colours Woodland Glade, Willow, Ice Pink, and Amethyst (all Focus matt emulsion), which you can buy in small tester pots.

Have a sweet day!

How-to step by step

    Step 1

    Using an embroidery needle, punch a hole in either side of 35 of the eggs. String 3 eggs together using wire, and make into a circle, twisting the end of the wire to secure. Fold twisted wire so it points inwards.

  • topiary tree 5

    Step 4

    Place the circle of painted 11 eggs over a polystyrene cone, then the circle of 9, circle of 7 and so on. Glue one painted egg at the top. Place a small strand of cream roving over the wire in between each egg. Using a needle felting needle, push roving into polystyrene cone at the top and bottom of each egg. This will secure the eggs in place and cover the wire. Push wired flowers into the gaps. Place egg covered cone into plant pot.
