Hello to you all. I hope your week is going well.
I have been looking for some accessories for our entrance hall but I had not had any luck until I visited Pottery Barn a few weeks ago and spotted some great moss topiaries. They were not fancy. In fact, they were incredibly simple but with at a price tag of $50.00 each, a little more than what I wanted to spend.
Since they looked so simple and unadorned, I figured I give it a go at it....
Here are the materials I used:
- Container (One from my own collection)
- Moss (I bought a big bag from Joann Fabric w. coupon)
- Floracraft 6" Ball ($6.99) Bought w. coupon
- Floracraft Styrofoam ($3.99)
- Tree twigg or small branch (From my backyard)
- Glue Gun
- Ribbon (from my own collection)
- dried roses (from roses I've already dried)
Note: This will be a bit messy because of the moss so I recommend that you cover your work area with some old fabric or drop cloth. You may also want to use gloves if you are using a hot glue gun.
Place the floral styrofoam in your container. Make sure that it is tightly pack and secured. Place tree branch in under and in the center of styrofoam ball.
I also added a few dried yellow roses to give it a little pop of color but this is a personal choice.
I love the way my topiary turned out. It is sitting pretty in our entrance hall and I couldn't be happier. I think I will be making a few more of these.
I hope to have inspired you with this project. It is super easy and lots of fun. The creative possibilities are endless with this project.
Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your week.
