Happy Wednesday friends!
Today I'm going to share with you a Ballard Topiary knock off!
These puppies start at $49.00 at Ballard! Wow!
But for under $8.00, you can have one that's very similar and in my opinion, CUTER!
So let's get started!
Here are the supplies you'll need:
I got everything from the two different Dollar stores, EXCEPT the ball which was $2.39 at Michael's. Yes, it pained me to pay over a dollar for a Styrofoam ball, but what could I do? None of the $0.99 or Dollar stores had them!
First, I cut the block down to size and stuck it in the vase.
After that, I shoved the dowel in there...
Put some Spanish Moss at the top of the vase to cover up the block.
(whoops! Slightly crooked....fixed it off camera)
Cover your ball in glue, and then the fun of attaching the floral moss begins! It's kind of a pain, but eventually it'll all stick. It might take a few tries, however.
And voila! A beautiful, Ballard inspired topiary! LOVE IT!
What a fun craft, and so versatile!
