Valentine topiary


So I’ve seen a few Valentine topiary’s that were so cute…but I just couldn’t justify the price tag!

I decided I was going to make my own and  spend less than five bucks. So I gathered some supplies around my house and went to work. First I glued three wooden dowels together.
Next I gathered some fabric scraps.. Then I rolled them up like a rose, and hot glued them to the foam ball.
Next I painted the dowels and wrapped them with small strips of fabric. Then I put them in the foam.
I covered the base with more fabrics and added some hearts I got for a dollar at HL.

It definitely added the final touch! What do you think?

I LOVE it!
 Happy Valentines!

    You are so talented!! I wish I could just whip something up like that! Maybe someday when I get the time I will try and find my creative juices, they have to be in there somewhere, Right?

    Very cute! I always love the color combination of red with light blue–feels a little bit vintage and reminds me of the 40's.
