I will use any excuse to ‘Craft it Up’ and Easter is no different!. I am having my husband’s family at our house for Easter this year. We have so much fun! We have an Easter Egg Hunt, an Easter Egg toss & last year we threw ‘Magic Jelly Beans’ on the garden in the morning & by the afternoon, they had grown into Lolly Pops! (the kids thought this was the BEST thing to ever happen to them and it was so lovely to watch!) That’s definitely a new Easter tradition of ours now!
Anyway, I wanted to have a centre piece for the table that the kids would like so I came up with this! It’s so easy to make it’s ridiculous!
You will need
Styrofoam balls x 2 (found in most craft stores)
A Dowel Rod (or any ‘stick’ you like)
Baby Chicks (found everywhere in the lead up to Easter)
A Basket (to stand your Topiary)
Easter ‘Grass’ (again, found at most craft or $2 stores)
Insert the Dowel Rod into the Styrofoam Ball.
Wrap the yellow ribbon around the rod & glue periodically to secure.
Then it’s just a matter of pinning or glue-gunning the chicks into/on to the ball, I think it’s better if you face all the little chicks the same way!
When you have covered the entire ball, make a bow & glue to the front of your creation.
Then place the other styrofoam ball into the basket & push in your Topiary!
Then cover with the grass. You could also add a few Easter Eggs to the top aswell! The perfect centre piece to your Easter Table!
