Topiaries

Here is my take on a topiary.  There are several blogs that have made topiaries, This is what I did, and I used what I had on hand.  I didn't have to buy anything.  YEAH.  I love those crafts.


I bought these urns after Thanksgiving for about $2.00 each.  I took all the fall picks out and painted it.  I primed it with gray primer and lightly sprayed a white over it.  The gray shows through, but, I liked how it turned out and left it.





I had this floral moss on hand for a project I plan on making for Christmas.



The Tacky Spray was from my hair bow holder,  and



the skewers were from my kitchen.



I also had the styrofoam shapes from previous crafts.  You just spray the styrofoam with tacky spray and cover the ball and tree shape with moss.  Be careful when spraying, I accidently sprayed a cup and could barely get the stuff off, ha ha.







I stuck the skewers into the bottom of the Styrofoam shapes.



The other end into the urn.



There you have it.

Happy Crafting = )
