One of the things I love most about making fun decor items for my parties is that I often get to re-use them. I made these pretty flower topiaries a few years back for a garden party and have been able to use them ever since for my Spring decorating. The best thing is you never have to worry about watering them! Here is how I made them:
- Styrofoam Ball
- Flower Paper Punch (found at Michael's)
- Spring Colored Card Stock
- Pearl Push Pins
- Wooden Dowel
- Flower Pot
- Floral Foam Block
- Easter Grass
- Glue Gun
- Place your Styrofoam block inside your flower pot.
- Punch out your flowers from the card stock. If you're using the same punch I have you'll need two cutouts to make up one flower. The number of flowers you'll need will vary on the size of styrofoam ball you have but be prepared to sit for a while because you'll need a lot.
- Start to cover you ball by layering two cutouts on top of each other and sticking a pearl pin through the center. Repeat until entire ball is covered.
- Add a small dab of glue to the end of your wooden dowel and glue down one end of your ribbon. Wrap the wooden dowel completely with ribbon and glue down the other end.
- Fill the flower pot with Easter grass.
- Stick your wooden dowel into the center of your flower ball and then stick the dowel into the center of the styrofoam in the flower pot.
