Like the ribbon wreath, this project doesn't have any rubber stamping--oh, the horrors! This topiary turned out better than I expected--I love when that happens!
I couldn't find the a container in the color and I liked. So, I bought one the size and shape I wanted and just spray painted it black--just use a spray paint for the type of container you have. Before...
The styrofoam base for my topiary came just like this from the craft store. I just had to find the right container for the base to fit in.
The next step is not hard to do, but it took me many days and long hours to roll up all the flowers and grass. I worked on it a little bit at a time over a period of a couple weeks. Start by rolling up the spiral from the outside in toward the center.
Roll up your spirals as tight as possible.
Hold flower together for a few seconds. Set aside to dry.
Repeat many times.
Glue flowers onto styrofoam form with hot glue. Repeat for the grass. Wrap ribbon around wooden dowel and add a pretty bow. Add Beautiful Butterflies (Big Shot) with Rhinestone Brads in the center. Spray with Smooch Spritz for a sparkle and shine.
Happy Creating! Bye for Now, Maria
