When I think of spring and the Easter holiday, two things come to mind . . . candy and color! These candy topiaries make delightful Easter centerpieces while bringing the best of April, candy favorites and bright colors, to your Easter table.
Supplies you probably already have:
- hot glue gun + glue
- acrylic paint (for the stem)
- bucket or pot
Supplies you may not have:
Sizes for these supplies depend on the size of your pot/bucket.
- styrofoam ball
- styrofoam half ball
- wooden dowel
I love bright & colorful candies for spring so I chose to use Skittles for my Easter centerpiece.
I purchased this Skittles & Starburst 30 Pack from Sam’s Club in the candy aisle.
To begin crafting your topiary, you will want to paint your styrofoam ball and your dowel. Only one coat is needed. Why do we paint the ball? Nobody wants to see hints of white peaking out in between your candies.
It’s fun to make patterns! I chose to do colorful flowers with lots of green separating them.
Once your ball is covered in Skittles, you will insert one end of the dowel into the ball and the other into the half ball. Place the half ball into your bucket or pot to stabilize the topiary. Adorn the topiary with ribbon and Easter grass and your are all set.
It may take some time but your finished product is bright, bold and beautiful!
I hope it’s delicious. For more candy craft projects like mine, search #VIPFruitFlavors. Xo
