Hey, there! It’s been a couple of days since I’ve been around, but I have a great little girly craft to show you today. Over the weekend, my daughter and I went over to the dollar store and bought some supplies to make this cute artificial flower topiary. I thought she needed something to jazz up her dresser. This came out so cute! I love it!
Total cost of this project was about $6. I think I might do one more so I can have two on either side.
What you will need:
- Artificial flower bunches (The amount you need depends on the size you make. I bought 2 bunches totaling 12 flowers.)
- Styrofoam ball. (I made my own out of two flat circle floral foam since I couldn’t find the balls.)
- A glass candle stick
- Craft glue
- Feather butterflies (optional)
What to do:
- This is what the floral foam looked like after I glued them together and shaped it into a ball with a kitchen knife. This was the most time consuming part. I suggest a styrofoam ball so it won’t take as long.
- I then placed the flowers into the foam for placement. I then removed them and applied glue to the ends. After gluing, I placed them back in the holes.
- When the flowers were all glued in, I cut the ribbon to tie on the bottom. This is optional, but I thought it looked so cute.
- The butterfly is also optional, but I figured since her room is butterflied out, there’s no reason why I can’t add one more, right?
This is the end result:
Thanks for joining me on this great little crafting adventure. I would love to see yours!
