Mini Topiaries

Hi Everyone.  Are your kids back in school?  Mine are finally, well, at least two are.  My two college kids start the first of September.  My Daycare is back in full force and I am so tired.  I haven't been blogging lately because I have been sooo very tired.  I think it will take at least another couple of weeks to fully get into the swing of things.  Anyway, I did finish my little topiary project.  I have had the pots sitting on my bookcase with just the styrofoam in them.  I did them the same way I did my previous topiary project, except I used up a few clay pots I had hanging around.  I love the little one.  I used a little clay pot (one left over from my pine cone trees).  


I think it is very cute.  I used a white plastic tooth pick for the stick.



I just used some white paint that I watered down and a paint brush to get the effect I wanted.



Some tacky glue,






and moss of course.  It was a real booger getting it off my hands.







I have them on top of my newly finished bookcase.  I will show the whole shebang in another post.

Have a great Monday.
Rhonda
