easy diy topiary

I've been searching for an affordable topiary over the past few months and haven't found one that was what I was looking for. So I decided to make one myself! I didn't think it would be too hard, but it was much easier than I expected. The whole thing took less than an hour, while watching tv!

A few weeks back I found this urn at Lowes, with this project in mind it was perfect! And it was on clearance for $7. When I was checking out I noticed this thin crack in the back of it, so I asked the cashier if they would discount it even more... they gave it to me for less than $3!

Next, I picked up some reindeer moss, spanish moss and a topiary form I found at AC Moore. I didn't even know they made these! I was just looking for a foam ball in the floral department!

I used my hot glue gun to glue the reindeer moss around the foam ball.

Then glued the base of the topiary form into the urn with a little more hot glue and topped it off with some extra moss. I mixed both types of moss for this part.

Here's the final result! I couldnt' be happier with it!

  2. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I've had
    trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!
