It took two trips to Michael’s and two nights to complete, but my topiaries are done! If you want to make two buy:
-2 small pots
-2 small styrofoam balls and 2 mediums ones
-2 dowel rods
Thankfully, my in-laws have a small hardware store at their house so I got the 2 dowel rods there. I stuck those in the smaller balls and put those in the pot first. I spray painted the whole thing and it only took two coats.
Cut your dowel rod down to the height that you want. I had to cut it twice because it was way too tall the first time. Then, I just spread out my supplies and decided on what the heck I was going to do. Took me a little while to get a game plan together.
Also, remember to hot glue the dowel rod to the balls and the balls to the pot. Makes life easier!
Now, just start sticking your floral pieces in where you want them! I would cut the pieces so I had about an inch to push into the base and it would stick out a few inches from the base. I wanted it to look as full as possible.
So, here is my final result! I think it turned out great; especially for my first go around. I have QUITE a bit left over… oops. So if anyone wants a topiary, you know who to call! And, it isn’t Ghostbusters….
What else should I put on this table?
