DIY Flower Topiary

If you haven't already noticed I made the jump and took my .blogspot blog to a .com! Yay!! So, I am in the middle of changing out all my buttons and links {so you'll have to be patient}. In the meantime, if you go to my olg .blogspot address it will send you here! If you want to bookmark me... add my web address as http://www.kdbuggieboutique.com/



I had a tough day the other day - as I'm sure all of us mom's have once in a while, right??! - so I desperately needed a craft project to regain some sanity!! Sometimes I find that doing a craft/sewing project - even if it's only a 10 or 15 minute thing - helps me to relax a little.

So, here's what I did... {sorry about the funky shadow behind it.. }


It is a flower topiary that now sits on top of my piano .. next to Max and Ruby! {and yes... we still have our Easter decorations up... I suppose it's about time to take them down!}


It's a really simply project! My pot, green spongy stuff {I'm sure that's the technical name for it} to stick my dowel in, and the moss were from the Dollar Tree. The dowel I had, the flowers and foam ball are from Joann's. I already had all the items on hand because this is something I have been meaning to do for a while.



Want to make your own??? I followed this tutorial from Becky Higgins.



The cool thing about this project is you can do so many different things with it! Choose colors that match your decor. Spray paint your cheap-y pot to stand out. Paint your dowel a fun color. Use plastic fruit instead of flowers. The possibilities are endless!



Have a great weekend and happy crafting!
