DIY Spring Topiary Materials

I picked up all of my craft supplies from Michaels Craft Stores for under $20.00!  The white lace container I found at IKEA but you can swap that out with any container you like; a vintage mason jar would be adorable!  Now that you have your supplies you are ready to create!

Step 1:  Using craft paint, paint the dowel rod and set to the side to let dry.

Step 2:  Using the hot glue, carefully cover the Styrofoam ball with the loose moss until the ball is completely covered and you can’t see any white.

Step 3:  Once the dowel rod is dry, insert it firmly in place to the bottom of the Styrofoam ball

Step 4:  Using the hot glue, begin to glue on the assorted flowers directly onto the moss covered Styrofoam ball.  I had decided to layer various flowers on top of each other to add a bit more detail.  You could also glue tiny pearls or other embellishments on the center of the flowers for some extra cuteness!

Step 5:  Assemble the topiary into the base container by placing a piece of floral foam or extra Styrofoam into the base first.  Once the topiary is secure, fill the base with remaining loose moss.
