After making faux chocolate bunnies, I couldn’t stop there. I had to make a faux chocolate egg tree.
I used smaller sized plastic eggs. I painted them brown and cream. I did about three layers of paint.
Once I was on the second coat, I realized it might have been a little easier to use spray paint. Oh, well! They must have looked pretty real, one of my kids tried to eat one!
After the paint was dry, I sprayed some clear gloss sealer to give them a nice shine. Once that was dry, I drizzled some white and black fabric paint over some of the eggs to give them a truffle look.
Then, I started hot glueing them to a cone form. I tried to space out the colors randomly. In between the spaces, I hot glued moss.
I covered the entire cone.
I placed the tree on top of a candle holder.
I love how it turned out!
