Pretty pastels, sweet polka dots, and darling little animals can only mean one thing…Spring is on it’s way! That’s why Candace of Lillypaul Designs is here to share a simple DIY Spring Topiary tutorial, perfect for some added Spring décor cuteness. This topiary would also make an adorable addition to a tea party or add some butterfly embellishments and it is perfect for a fairy garden party!
-5 inch Styrofoam ball
-12 inch dowel rod
-Craft paint and paint brush
-Assorted craft flowers
-Hot Glue Gun
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.
