  • 6-inch Styrofoam Ball
  • Foot-long Wooden Dowel
  • Glue
  • 6-inch Terra-Cotta Pot
  • Plaster
  • Easter Grass
  • 2 Layers of Tulle (1 purple, 1 yellow) or Acrylic Paint
  • Ribbons
  • Round Toothpicks
  • Round, Foil-Wrapped Chocolates

  1. Poke a 6-inch Styrofoam ball onto a foot-long wooden dowel and glue the ball in place.
  2. Fill a decorated 6-inch terra-cotta pot with plaster--first glue a piece of Styrofoam over the hole at the bottom--and push the dowel into the still-wet plaster. After the plaster sets, glue Easter grass on its surface.
  3. So the Styrofoam doesn't show through, cover the ball in 2 layers of tulle (1 purple, 1 yellow), which you can gather tightly around the dowel with ribbons (you could also just paint the ball with acrylic paint).
  4. Use round toothpicks to cover the ball with chocolates, poking one end into the chocolate and the other into the ball.
  5. ENJOY!
