Hey my friends! I have a DIY project to share with you today. This is quite possibly the easiest, cheapest and quickest project I've ever done!
Meet Mr. Topiary . . .
Isn't he the cutest little topiary you've ever seen!
Here is what you need to make your own topiary . . .
Faux Boxwood Ball - I found mine at Hobby Lobby last year. I used a coupon and it cost me around $2.00. You can find these at most craft stores and they are inexpensive.
Metal Container With Burlap Number - Head over to Michael's Craft Store and check out their clearance items. I picked this up for about $2.00 - it was 50% off the original price. If you can't find one like this you could make your own or use something you already have.
Spanish Moss - You will only need a tiny bit for this project. I always keep a bag or two of moss in my craft supply. It's inexpensive, a little goes a long way and you can use it for all kinds of crafts.
Branches - Don't buy these at the craft store! Go outside and clip a few tiny branches off a tree or shrub.
Styrofoam - This is another item I always keep in my craft supply. Just cut off a small piece to fit in the bottom of the container to hold the branches in place.
Are you ready for the very complicated tutorial?
Place styrofoam into bottom of container. Add branches. Place moss around branches to hide styrofoam. Stick branches into boxwood ball. That's it! Now you have a cute little topiary for about $5.
I love Mr. Topiary on my console table!
