DIY: Shabby Mini Toparies


Now that fall is right around the corner,
here's a project that can be done while
catching up on your favorite show.


Supplies Needed:
Small Tin Buckets or Pots
Styrofoam Balls
Dowel - cut to size or Sticks
Floral Foam
Moss
Artificial Greenery
Hot Glue Gun
Paint


The pictures are pretty self explanatory for this project
but I`ll tell you what I did.


Cover your foam ball with the artificial 
greenery using hot glue.
I picked up the artificial greenery at 
my local Dollar Store.
Push dowel through styrofoam ball.


I painted the dowels a dark brown and the buckets an 
ivory which I then distressed once dried.
To get the detailed line just add a thin piece of masking 
tape before painting then remove while paint is still tacky.


Place a piece of floral foam in the bucket
then push dowel through, add hot glue
to keep nice and secure. Then top with moss.



The longest part of this project is covering the
styrofoam balls with the greenery.
But a little Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire or Dexter 
can make it more exciting...
just don`t burn yourself!

These are beautiful!

I haven't been here in a while. Are you having a good summer? Mine's been pretty crazy, especially this month. I've had 3 root canals! I've been getting lots of abscesses. So, I've been in all kinds of pain and doped up for all of August. YAY!!! I'm not even done yet either. He still has to finish the one he just did yesterday. So, that will be a total of 5 visits to the dentist. I'm grateful my dentist has nitrous, but I've had my fill.

Well, I hope you are doing well.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Hi there! Thanks for linking up to our CHQ Blog Hop - we loved having you visit! And on my way over here to say thank you, I noticed your little Newfoundland flag in the bottom - are you from NL? I am too, and I never meet anyone from there, so I was totally excited when I saw it :) Anyway, thanks again for linking up and I hope you'll be back again next week!

Very pretty! I love topiaries! That's pretty nice greenery for the dollar store; I thought it was real sedum you used.

I came over from SixSistersStuff. I can't wait to make one of these for my entry way table. Do you think you could use the same stuff to make bigger ones? like for outside the front door? I love the topiary look but real trees are so pricy. You have so many great ideas on here. New follower!

Topiaries are so popular. Love how you painted the posts. Now you do know that they have the balls already at the $store all you need to do is push them on a stick and add all your other ingredients. That way you save your finger tips from hot glue. Food for thought.
