Dollarstore Topiary
Article Submitted by Only6mons2

I made a topiary completely from items you can find at your average dollar store.

You will need:

A hot glue gun and extra glue

A 6" Styrofoam ball

A 4 1/2" clay pot

White craft paint

Paint brush

A stick (I found mine in my backyard)

A block of floral foam (oasis)


5 bunches or roses (your choice of colour)

Sheet moss


First paint clay pot.

Let dry, then apply second coat of paint.

Pull the flower heads off the stems.

Use hot glue to stick the flower heads into the Styrofoam ball until it is completely covered.

By now the flower pot should be dry.

Put a little hot glue into the bottom of the clay pot.

Press the oasis into the pot, trimming if necessary.

Cover the top of the floral foam with glue.

Press the moss into the glue covering the foam and completely concealing it.

Coat the tip of the stick with glue and press into the floral foam.

Coat the top tip of the stick with foam and press the Styrofoam ball down on the stick

Embellish with ribbon if you like.

This topiary can be used for a centerpiece or accent. I will use mine on my guestbook signing table. This project took approximately 30 minutes.

This project cost approximately $9 however additional ones would be less because you will have enough oasis to do two and enough moss to do four.
