I created this topiary as part of my Michaels Makers project this month. That post was getting pretty long, so I created this separate tutorial to show how to re-create this project.

Supplies (contains afflilate links):

2 Burlap Hydrangea Spray

4″ styrofoam ball

Acrylic Paint (match to hydrangea)

Foam Brush

Topiary (the one I purchased was on clearance. You could also make your own with a terra-cotta pot, some floral foam, and the stem from the hydrangea spray)

Ribbon

Ad tech Lo-Temp glue gun

xacto knife or awl
