...hello my sweets!!
are you in a creative mood??
you were looking for something to do this weekend??
look no further!
have I got an inspiring project for you:)
I was strolling through one of my favorite
lovely little boutiques recently,
when I spotted a fabulously mossed topiary tree...
this mossy topiary caught my eye!
maybe it had something to do with
ALL the other FABULOUS things around that topiary display,
but it was to late,
I was a goner!!
I turned it over to check the price out...
no, not $9.50!!!
as this was certainly not a need...
I decided to put that fabulous mossy moss rock topiary right back where I found it!!
I knew I could very easily duplicate it
for around $20!
and now I'm going to show you how I did just that:)
here is your supply list:
* 1 green color 13" styro cone (Michael's)
* 1 bag o' floral moss (Wal-mart)
NOT sphagnum moss!
floral moss is bits of pretty green sheet moss:)
* 5 - 11 piece natural accents moss rocks (Wal-mart)
* glue gun and glue sticks
* your choice of decorative urn or container
* first, dump all your moss rocks out and look at them.
you will put them on your cone like a puzzle.
* then start by gluing a few on the bottom of your cone
----> notice how I started up about 2"?
this will allow you to fit it into a container like a candle fits into a candle holder
* take your time
and fit bits of your moss pieces in between each of your moss rocks...
keep going, adding moss bits then moss rocks
glue on the little sticks and lichen that fall out of your bag too
You did it!!!
now, on the bottom
where you left a couple of inches,
glue on some moss all the way around the base of your cone
now place in a lovely container of your choice and you are done!
I chose this vintage silver champagne bucket,
it fit perfectly!!
You may adorn it anyway you wish...
now, step back
and delight in your new mossy moss rock topiary!!
I'll show you how to make these:
Pottery Barn knockoff speckled eggs!!
I'll be sharing this over at:
