First time poster here (but have been nosing around for months!)

I just rescued a huge garbage bag filled with plastic eggs from my grandmom's house (accumulated over the last 20+ years for the annual egg hunt we used to have). Of course, I couldn't throw them out so I've had this huge garbage bag of eggs sitting in a closet, waiting to be used.

Inspiration hit when I saw a topiary at Pier One for $45.00! Of course, this one's not as classy and refined at the one I saw, but it's definitely funner!

All it is is a topiary form, plastic eggs, and green plastic easter grass (and my trusty glue gun).

Okay, that is brilliant.  I, too, have acres of plastic eggs that I would love to do something with!  I think I have eggs in different sizes and different hues (pastels vs. brights), so I could experiment with different combinations.  And I might try to embellish with ribbon or crystals or something.  Goody goody!  thanks for the inspiration, Kleer425!

That's adoreable! I did a search on plastic eggs because Ii too have a large amount of easter eggs with nothing to make with them. I have maybe 80 eggs I could make a few of these for my family members as decoration. Thank you so much for posting this.
