So, I kind of like checking out the plastic Easter eggs every year to see what’s new. There’s always a different pattern or design I can add to my collection for Easter morning. When I saw these “chocolate,” plastic Easter eggs, I knew it was an Easter craft in the making. After Patty Schaffer made her Purple Ombre Easter Egg Wreath, she agreed to make a Chocolate Easter Egg Topiary for Crafts ‘n Coffee, too. It looks mouthwatering, doesn’t it?
To make a Chocolate Egg Topiary, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” cone
- Chocolate plastic eggs, about 4-1/2 dozen (Oriental Trading has them on sale)
- Fabric scraps
- Sheet moss
- Double-sided tape
- Low-temp glue gun
- Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; straight pins; optional: rotary cutter and mat
To make a Chocolate Egg Topiary:
- Cut fabric into 1-1/4” wide strips. Use double sided tape and straight pins to wrap and cover the cone in fabric strips.
- Starting at the bottom, glue eggs in rows around the cone. Continue to work your way up to the top.
- Tuck bits of sheet moss in between the eggs to fill in gaps.
Wouldn’t this be the perfect centerpiece for Easter brunch or dinner? It’s everlasting, too, so make it a tradition and display this Chocolate Egg Tree for years to come.

I don’t want you to miss Patty’s Purple Ombre Easter Egg Wreath from last week, either.
