So, I easily put my topiary together, using a 10 inch flora craft foam ball for the top, a small branch that I found in the woods, a half of a Styrofoam ball for the base that was from a previous project, wine color acrylic paint to color the balls so the white wouldn't show through, tacky glue and a urn that I purchased on clearance a few years ago.
To begin, after inserting the stick branch into the ball base, I painted the Styrofoam balls.
Next, I glued the moss on both balls using quick grab tacky glue. I found this better than using hot glue which made the moss hard and my fingers HOT! Ouch!
Once finished gluing on the moss, I had fun deciding where my topiary would go. It looks perfect in the foyer, by the front door . . .
or by the fireplace, near the tv . . .
or in that hard to decorate corner . . .
I have so many of . . .
or maybe in the living room, where there's always an open space . . .
Oh, and I did add a bow!
Now that's so much better!
No matter where I put it, I know that it makes for a timeless decorative accent piece, for now, the holidays, or whenever, year after year.
And if you're considering this topiary for the holidays, just add LED battery lights to the reindeer moss and you're all set!
With it's lovely fuchsia color, this topiary is sure to be a show stopper in any décor!
Take a little time to enjoy
