  5. Add speckles: Dip the toothbrush bristles into the brown paint. Tap off any excess paint. Hold the brush about 3-4 inches away from each egg and use your thumb to flick the bristles, splattering the paint onto the egg's
    surface. Use more paint for larger speckles, and less paint for smaller speckles.
  6. Assemble: Use a combination of E6000 and hot glue to stack the eggs one on top of each other. Let dry overnight. glue three eggs together
  7. Add moss: Use hot glue to add moss and boxwood in the two sections between the eggs. glue moss and greenery between each egg
  8. Stack eggs in the pot: Hot glue a cube of craft foam to the inside bottom of the pot. Then glue the bottom of the largest egg to the top of the craft foam (using both E6000 and hot glue). Fill in any space at the top of the pot with moss and boxwood.

The Finished Easter Egg Topiary

I displayed my finished Easter egg topiary on our living room mantel along with these Dollar Tree speckled egg painted candles and a Reverse Canvas Window Frame on the wall behind.

I also think this topiary craft would make a great pair – place one on each end of a fireplace mantel or on a long side table.
