Topiary


I love bright colors! and this topiary feeds that addiction. It was so easy to make too! All you need are: silk flowers, Styrofoam balls and piece for flower pot, flower pot, dowel rod, hot glue, paint (for dowel)


Paint your dowel in the color of your choice (I picked light green)

Glue flowers into styrofoam ball, completely covering but leave a place to insert dowel.

After dowel is dried place into styrofoam in the flower pot (hot glue to stay in place)

Use the leaves from the flower stems to cover bottom along with another flower of your choice.

Poke hole into ball, fill with hot glue, place onto dowel to set.

and your done!!

I love both of those projects. You have inspired me! :)

Yes, I just finished the second book and have dived head first into the third. I can't stop! My hubby just rolls his eyes, he thinks I'm silly. But he's used to it, I get so easily sucked into a good book, I can't think about anything else until I finish it. :)

Have a great day! Thanks so visiting my blog! I have another giveaway coming up soon... :-)
