Fall Ribbon Topiary How-To

Here's a re-post from my old blog that I thought was season appropriate and a super-fun craft!

Thanks to the amazing Whitney Caroline I learned how to make a Ribbon Topiary from her instructions! I loved the way that it turned out and I have already decided to make a Christmas one next week! Here are some pics from my crafty-ness:



All of my supplies ready to go!


I found that a round Styrofoam ball (5 inch) worked great inside these pots I found as the base - a lot easier than cutting floral foam to fit.


Just getting started with the ribbon - you will need A LOT of pins!!




I spray painted the pot and the dowel rod black - super easy and I LOVE playing with spray paint! I know, I'm like a 10 year old!


Finally coming along.



I used the standard Michael's moss and then spray painted it white to give it a gray "Halloween" look.


Decided it needed the orange band around the pot for some color.


This is the back - no one will see it but I wanted to finish it off kind of cute in case someone was looking.


And ta-da!! The finished project on my kitchen table!!

Let me know if any of y'all make these - I want to see pics!!

Oh my gosh, those are so stinkin' cute! I would pay you to make those for me!! How much did you spend on all the materials? And, more importantly, was it hard??
