Spring Flower Topiary Tutorial

7:32 AM

Hey, there! It's been a couple of days since I've been around, but I have a great little girly craft to show you today. Over the weekend, my daughter and I went over to the dollar store and bought some supplies to make this cute artificial flower topiary. I thought she needed something to jazz up her dresser. This came out so cute! I love it

Total cost of this project was about $6. I think I might do one more so I can have two on either side.

What you will need:

  • Artificial flower bunches (The amount you need depends on the size you make. I bought 2 bunches totaling 12 flowers.)
  • Styrofoam ball. (I made my own out of two flat circle floral foam since I couldn't find the balls.)
  • A glass candle stick
  • Craft glue
  • Ribbon
  • Feather butterflies (optional)

What to do:

  • This is what the floral foam looked like after I glued them together and shaped it into a ball with a kitchen knife. This was the most time consuming part. I suggest a styrofoam ball so it won't take as long.
  • I then placed the flowers into the foam for placement. I then removed them and applied glue to the ends. After gluing, I placed them back in the holes. 
  • When the flowers were all glued in, I cut the ribbon to tie on the bottom. This is optional, but I thought it looked so cute. 
  • The butterfly is also optional, but I figured since her room is butterflied out, there's no reason why I can't add one more, right?

This is the end result:

Thanks for joining me on this great little crafting adventure. I would love to see yours!
