Easter Egg Tissue Topiary

Level: Medium Time: 45 min
  • Blown Out Egg (For how-to see HERE)
  • Small pot
  • Dried moss/grass/or raffia
  • Floral Foam
  • 2 wooden Skewers
  • Tissue Paper cut into 1/2" square
  • Glue
Step 1: Cut a small piece of floral foam and place into pot, maing sure it's nice a tight so it wont fall out. Using a Hot Glue Gun (adults only please!) top with dried moss, grass or raffia.

Step 2: Break one skewer to desired height of the topiary (the skewer should run through the bottom hole of the egg, all the way through the egg, and stop at the inside top). Use a Hot Glue Gun to secure skewer to the egg.

Step 3: Pour out a small pile of glue. Using the blunt end of the other skewer, wrap a tissue paper square around the end. Dip into the glue (not too much!) and secure to the egg. Continue until the entire egg is covered. You may need to take a break in the middle for 'dry time.' If there is too much glue, the tissues will push each other around.

This was a fun craft, my 8 year old and 6 year old girl helped me with these....even my 3 yr old boy got in on the action with a "Spider Man" egg! I wasn't sure what to do with I decided to tie a tag around the pot and use them for place cards at our easter dinner. Wherever you use them, they are super cute! Have fun!
