Easter Topiary

I love this time of year !

This Easter topiary took me all of 5-ish minutes to make.

Gotta love that !Here's what I started with: a bag of Easter grass that I got after Easter last year from 10 cents, a $1.00 foam block, two packs of Glitter Egg Picks for $1.00 each from Dollar Tree and finally my awesome find from Goodwill a cute metal basket I scored for 50 cents. The metal basket was a centerpiece from Edible arrangements . First off I hot glued the foam block in the metal basket. I oped not to take the plastic off the block. . . why ? ? . . because I don't like the 'dusty' stuff that falls off these foam blocks. Next I broke each pick in different spots to vary the height of each one. Than I stuck each pick in the foam block, again varying them in height. After adding the Easter grass. . . Here it is ! Lovin' it on my dining room table. Happy Crafting !

Cute! I've got some of those picks but haven't use them yet. I don't have a great container like that.
