With February half over and Easter right around the corner, we can bring out the Easter decor and look ahead to Spring <3 . The next few weeks, I am going to share some very simple, yet charming diy crafts. When I say simple, I mean simple. I even went as far as shopping my own home for everything but the styrofoam in this project.
I love topiarys, don’t you? They come in so many different sizes and varieties, so using them for indoor and/or outside decor provides instant gratification. This diy craft utilizes marbles and faux flowers. If you are into crafts, most likely you have plenty of each.
I tried growing herbs one year, didn’t do so hot, but I enjoyed the left over pots 😉 – I love the color pink, so naturally I chose that for the color of spray paint to use. I had a bundle of bamboo BBQ skewers that I used for the stem. You can use a dowel rod, or perhaps even straws.
I cut a piece of styrofoam to fit the pot tightly around the inside. Ignore the center, I added some hot glue and sand, and then realized I hadn’t taken a picture to show the inside. So, anyway, poke your stick in the center of the foam inside the pot and the other end into the styrofoam ball. Fill the pot with either sand or dirt. Whatever you fill the pot with should be somewhat dense to keep it weighted; otherwise it will be top heavy.
I should note, that I decided to add 2 more sticks for sturdiness, once I started adding the marbles to the top, it seemed to heavy for just 1.
I’ve had these Easter marbles for years. I decided to re-purpose them instead of using them for vase fillers. Hot glue the marbles in a random order to the ball.
I simply wrapped the 3 center rods with pink ribbon and tied another piece around the center, and add Easter grass. I am still finding Easter grass in the kitchen, and I constructed this craft a week ago. Such is life 😉 . Cute isn’t it?
I also made a smaller topiary and used faux flowers and beads. Just simply take apart the inside of the flower and you are left with several layers to use in decorating your topiary. Sequins is fun to use anytime. I wrapped a strand around the pot for added decoration and used a few single sequin on the topiary tops. My years and years of scrap-booking sure has allowed for a variety of embellishments 🙂 .
These turned out so cute, and I had so much fun making them. I decided to put together a simple table setting in order to highlight how festive they are.
I hope you enjoy this fun and easy project. I look forward to showing you my Easter tablescape in a few weeks. Come back next week for another easy craft.

Amazing Easter craft! Just the right time to make it with my kids!
I believe what you typed was very logical. However, think about this, what if you were to write a awesome post title?
I ain’t saying your information isn’t good., however what if you
added something to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Easter Topiarys is a little boring.
You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how
they write news headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a related
video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what
you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
