Topiaries go with just about every home decor style.
Have you priced topiaries lately? They are a little pricey.
I have one small one that I made 3 years ago but have been wanting more. I priced a few at Joann Fabric and they were not within my Topiary budget. HA!
So I did what any DIY’er would do…..I figured I would price making some myself.
The topiary ball tops are 6″ diameter. I found them at Hobby Lobby and they were 50% so price for each were $3.50
Terra Cotta pots 8″ were $3.40 each.
Sticks for the topiary, FREE from my yard.
Once I gathered my stems/sticks, I was ready to get started.
Here is what you will need:
Terra Cotta – Pots 10″ (any pot you like)
Topiary balls x 2
Foam (fit in bottom of pots)
Hot glue gun
I painted my terra cotta pots, but you can leave yours as is if you would like.
Cut a piece of foam to fit the pot. The foam needs to be snug in the pot.
The boxwood top that I bought was a mesh top ball so I needed to add something to the top of the stem sticks so that it would not go through the bottom spot but also stop at the top. I created a round ball with a piece of foam, tape and hot glue. Secure the boxwood ball top to the stem.
Insert you stick or sticks in the center of the foam. If it doesn’t seem secure just add a little hot glue around the bottom of the sticks and the foam.
Now your ready to add moss to the top of the pot to cover the foam.
Here is the type of moss that I used for this project
There you have it. Pretty easy, right?
Adding topiaries to you home decor is a great way to refresh your home. I hope this has inspired you to make a few. Do you think this project seems easy? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
