Want to make a Pottery Barn Topiary at a fraction of the cost ?
•2 Topiary balls found at Ross or Homegoods
•2 wooden dowels - size varies on your desired look ( I bought 2 sizes one larger than the other for height and variation) Hobby lobby - prepackages are an option but don’t have the height .
•2 floral foams bought at dollar tree
•2 spray paint Rustoleium Color - Rustic Umber
Purchased at Home Depot
•Moss- Dollar Tree
craft paint - brown
•terra cotta pots Home depot any size you choose
cost : $9 Balls
$4.98 spray paint
*** need a glue gun and a hand saw to cut down the dowels .
1-First thing cut dowels to desired heights . Determine where you want them or if it doesn’t matter than choose a height. 2-paint pots (one coat is all I did )
4-glue gun heated for glueing foam and moss
5-place foam and glue down the foam to pot then Add dowel and finally add the ball and adhere with hit glue to the dowel . If moving in the pot hot glue it down. Last, add moss to the top.
***Use handsaw with caution and I used a device to keep my dowel in place while cutting it in half •
This is the second to the last step. I also used hot glue on the sides of the foam and the point at the hole and the dowel to make sure the dowel doesn't move.
