I finally got around to using some of my Dollar Tree stuff that I bought months ago for a topiary. I had such a good time making this little beauty that I decided I needed to make a couple more, but when I went back my store no longer had the foam balls. If yours does I suggest you run over there and snatch them up because they are a heck of a deal at $1. Even when Hobby Lobby marks them half off they aren't this cheap. ANYWAY, back to the task at hand.
Here are the supplies you will need. All of which I got at the Dollar Tree (except my glue gun).
- 2 Foam balls
- Spanish or Green Moss
- Small Pot
- Floral Foam
- Dowel rod
- Hot glue
Quite simply, line up your balls, slide them on your painted dowel rod, and slowly cover the foam balls with glue and moss a small section at a time. When they are all covered, insert the dowel rod into the foam form and then glue it in place and add moss to the top of the pot. I added some embellishments I had on hand like ribbon and a bird's nest, but this literally cost me $5 and it is so stinkin' cute.
