Several weeks ago, Robin, at The Robin's Nest showed how she makes beautiful topiaries and changes ribbons for various seasons. She referred us to her mom's blog for more ideas, and after visiting both of these talented ladies, I knew they had created something else that I wanted. Robin's topiary was the one piece tree and her mom had one like above. I had a difficult time deciding which one I wanted, but Hobby Lobby had these forms and not the one piece so my decision was made!! Robin used the sheet moss which looked extremely easy but her mom had used reindeer moss. Again, I went with the reindeer moss. This afternoon when I got home from work I started working on this one. (I have the supplies to make two). It was SO EASY. I have never used reindeer moss and I'm a huge fan of it now....it is so soft and looks like the real thing!! I just used my hot glue gun and started gluing the moss.
After I finished --- and it really didn't take very much time at all -- I put some spanish moss in the bottom and tied a bow out of burlap. I really love it!
Since I only made one topiary today, I put this one on the table in my foyer but will use the pair somewhere else when I get it made. I have another idea (from another wonderful blog) for this table.....that will be another post.
I have gotten many ideas from Robin. She and her mother are so talented...be sure and drop by to visit her.
