It’s FINALLY spring!! Even though it is still snowing outside, I’m ignoring it, and putting out as much pastel springtime decor as I can!!!!
I recently made these pink paper flower spring topiaries – and wanted to show you how I did it!
Flower Punch – usually used for scrapbooking
scrapbook or colored paper
paint that will match your flowers (optional)
dowel – about 24″ long
This is the same paper punch I used over on this Spring Vase project. I hit up a 4/$1 scrapbook paper sale at Michaels. I punched out 4 sheets of the pink design to cover both styrofoam balls. I also had some vellum around, so I punched flowers out of that as well and doubled up the vellum on top of the scrapbook paper. It gave it a little more shine and dimension – but that is totally optional.
All you do is take the flowers and pin them into the ball! It’s really simple! The first time I did this though, the background color of the Styrofoam ball was white. I didn’t like the way that color was showing through, so I took out the flowers and painted it – and stuck them back in.
Then you take the dowel and just stick it in the ball and inside the foam cube that you should have in your pot. I covered up the foam cube with some spanish moss and hot glued it in. You can paint the dowel, or add a bow like I did if you like.
They are bright and so spring like – it helps me forget the white stuff that hasn’t yet melted outside!
