Fluffy chicks and eggs that sit atop and on topiaries certainly celebrate the Easter season and it also fills the void of spring tabletop decor that you probably have been looking for but have not yet found!
Literally crafting these table decorations provides a spring solution for your table as well as providing simple and fun Easter crafts to make and enjoy during the season and shortly thereafter.

You’ll find there are unlimited color and placement options and it is easy to transform basic topiaries into festive spring decorations to use on top of your tables, mantles, hutches, etc.
What Do You Need to Make This Spring TableTop Decor?
You will find these items necessary to construct the adorable Easter Topiary DIY:
- glue gun
- fluffy chicks in assorted colors
- a premade topiary
- speckled mini eggs in assorted colors
The chicks I purchased were only 3/4″ x 1 1/4″ you can go smaller, but I would not go bigger, or they might be too heavy on the delicate petals of the topiaries.
Overall I would compare each of these chenille chicks to the size of a quarter and not bigger, and yep they were that small!
As for the Potted Rose Ball Topiaries that I purchased they were just 12 1/2″ tall so that they did not overpower the table that they were going on and merely accented it with Spring and Easter color pops.
Naturally, you could purchase larger ball and base topiaries, this is all a matter of personal preference and how you plan on using the space.
And if you really wanted to, you could trade out the rose topiaries and replace them with green balls!

How To Make Fluffy Chick and Egg Topiaries
Step 1: Separate Your Assorted Chenille Easter Chicks + Foam Speckled Eggs
Decide what colors of your chenille Easter chicks you want to use on your topiaries and set them aside.
You’ll want to coordinate your foam speckled eggs to the chenille Easter chicks so that it all flows, so put them together in piles and makes sure it all is cute!
Step 2: Create Your Spring To Make Your Easter Decor DIY
You’ll use your glue gun to dab the little feet of the fluffy chicks one by one and then hold them in place for a few seconds to ensure they are secured.
Then you will repeat that placing them everywhere you want them on the topiaries.
Follow that with the foam speckled eggs, dotting with cool glue gun glue and affixing wherever you have chosen to place them on your topiary.
If you are changing your design, you could use carrots around the base of the topiary planter as well.
Fluffy chenille Easter chicks are the perfect Spring Tabletop Decor
Once you make this simple Spring or Easter craft (whichever you are using it for), you will obviously want to display it on your tabletops!
These are not expensive to craft and will cost you far less to make than to purchase as a made topiary.
Alternative Styling Options For The Topiaries
If you noticed in my photo below, I’ve added foam carrots as an option for decorating the topiaries with.
So, this offers you alternative styling of the topiary by simply using small carrots instead of the speckled eggs or you could of course use both and create a different design.
If you want to add a little humor to the overall look, you could string a few of the chenille chicks on a satin string and then affix the string with the chicks to the top of the base of the topiary planter, and it will look like the chicks are making a break for it!
That is the simple beauty of making your own topiaries because you can change it up to make it your own style.
Additionally, if you don’t want to make a set of topiaries, you can just make one topiary, so make as few or as many as you want.
Can I change the color of the topiaries?
YES! You absolutely can change the color of the topiaries to by simply using a spray paint.
In fact, you can use metalics, or any pastel hue, or whatever colors you want to making different versions of this seasonal tabletop décor.
Are The Chenille Easter Chicks Easy To Find?
YES! I have 2 great sources that I purchase these from and you can find there HERE!

- Begin gluing from the top.
- Glue the chenille chick's feet, then hold against the petal briefly until set.
- Make sure to clear off any strings of hot glue and then repeat, until you work your way around the entire topiary top.
- Use your glue gun to secure the speckled foam eggs flush to the terracotta base of the topiary
- One by one cover the entire upper rim, only leaving about 1/2" space between each!
- Alternate the colors for a more flowing pattern.
- Next, start where the topiary is fastened. Glue one chick at the base.
- Continue this pattern, however, turn the base just a bit, so the next one is stacked diagonally.
- Repeat this until you have chicks all the way up the base.
