Easter Topiary

It is windy outside here in southern New Mexico so I know spring is upon us.  I thought I would attempt an Easter Egg Topiary this spring.   Here is how I made it.
Supplies: Topiary Form found at Hobby Lobby, ribbon, large ric rac, pot, moss, small spleckled eggs, glitter, adhesive spray, glue gun, pins

The first thing I did was go out in the garage and spray the topiary for with adhesive spray and stick the moss on it.  After you do this it looks alittle scary.

Then I took the ribbon and wrapped the stick.  I used the hot glue gun to stick into place.

Then I wanted the top to look sort of like a birds nest so I cut about 10-12 pieces of ribbon at 8 in.  I sealed the ends of ribbon with heat.

I took silver sewing pins and pinned into place.  I think it would also be neat to add feathers or even tulle but didn't have it on hand  so the ribbon curls will do. Now lets hot glue the cute little eggs on the topiary.

I then took it back to the garage and sprayed with more adhesive and sprinkled with pretty white glitter.  For the pot I watered down some yellow metallic paint and painted it.

I hot glued a blue ric rac on the rim and put my topiary in to finish this craft. 
 
Happy Spring!!
