This stunning topiary is, without a doubt, one of our all-time favorite DIYs. It practically embodies Spring and is the perfect addition to your home.


Supplies:

  • Planter/container
  • Styrofoam disc(s), trimmed to fit inside planter
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue sticks

  • Masking tape
  • Large styrofoam ball
  • Wire cutters
  • Artificial greenery stems
  • Small artificial flowers

  • Toothpicks
  • Towel
  • Moss rocks

Directions:

Apply hot glue to one flat side of styrofoam disc and press into planter. If necessary, repeat with additional styrofoam discs until you reach top of planter. Apply pressure until completely dry.

Trim sticks so that they are all the same length. Cluster sticks together and wrap both ends with masking tape to hold them together. Press wire cutters into both the styrofoam ball and the styrofoam in the planter to create a hole in each. Apply hot glue to one end of sticks and press into hole in styrofoam ball. Repeat previous step but press into hole in styrofoam in planter. Let dry completely.

Using wire cutters, trim greenery and flowers off stems, leaving a small length of stem to press into styrofoam. Place a small dab of hot glue on one end of toothpick and carefully press into robin’s egg. Let dry completely. Repeat until all robin’s eggs have been prepared.

Place towel on work surface and lay side of planter on top. Begin pressing trimmed greenery stems into styrofoam ball by applying a small dab of hot glue to end of stem and placing in desired location. Repeat previous step until ball is completely covered. Repeat same process with flower stems and robin’s eggs.

Cover top of styrofoam in planter by applying hot glue to bottom of moss rocks and positioning on styrofoam. Repeat until styrofoam has been covered. Let dry completely.

Enjoy!

ORANGE & FIELD TIP: Depending on the size of your styrofoam ball, you may need a good amount of greenery to cover it completely.
