DIY Heirloom Egg Topiary

April 9, 2014
Egg topiary

I was on assignment this week from HGTV Gardens. My job was to create an egg topiary showcasing how beautiful chicken eggs can be in their natural state. Of course, I wanted to include many natural elements from the gardens. So I added a base made from a birch tree, moss, grapevines and burlap ribbon. This craft took about an hour to complete. It was a very simple process.

I began by attaching the styrofoam cone to the base. Then I covered it with moss.
I blew out these eggs so that they became hollow inside. This is easy to do with help from a nail or even a dremel. Sometimes a few break during the process, so be sure to buy extra.

I topped it off with a sweet chalkboard sign that greets guests with any message. My kids asked me to draw a little bunny in the corner.

To learn how to make an egg topiary like this on your own, please visit my post on HGTV for all the easy step-by-step instructions. You ask what will I make with all of those eggs? Probably a quiche or even a clafoutis!
