You'll Never Know Unless You Try It

I haven't been in the project making mood for the past couple of days, so I thought I'd share a past project I made for my daughter's room. This is a topiary I made from cardstock, pearlhead pins, glass marbles, a styrofoam ball, a dowel, a piece of ribbon, a terra cotta pot, and some spray paint. I haven't quite finished it yet though. I want to glue some of the glass marbles around the pot and add some glitter to the paper flowers.

Please don't mind the crookedness of the picture. I took this outside on the ground and I tried to get to ground level. Oops!

Honestly, I really never was into the topiary thing. However, I decided to give it a try with some paper and punches. I'm really glad I made this. Now it's one of my favorite things in her room.
Have a great day everybody!

  2. I love it! I have never made a topiary myself, but have always thought they were darling!
