Paper Topiary tree

This delightful little Topiary tree makes a cute table decoration

Products Used:
SU Dashing Designer series paper
SU 5-petal flower punch
SU Spring flower bouquet punch
2 foam balls
Long quilting pins
Kindy glitz
Terracotta pot
Ribbon for bow
Florists oasis
Pebble covering
Assorted buttons
length of dowel

This little project couldn't be easier.
Forcibly push the dowel into the middle of the foam balls (you may need to use a sharp implement to assist you with this...I used my knife sharpener), then remove.

Next, simply punch out your flowers and then arrange them together in pairs or triples and pop them with a pin and stick that into the foam balls...continue doing this until your foam balls are covered (as you go just curl the corners up a little with your finger).

Trim your length of dowel to the size that suits you, when you're happy with the length stick that into the florists oasis in your little terracotta pot.

Now you may want to put a small amount of glue around the holes of the foams balls to get them to stick to the dowel.

Once everything is in position, gently fill in the visible holes with buttons (just glue those on and stick them with a pin, when dry remove the pin)

Dry a length of ribbon around your pot...fill around dowel with pebble or someting suitable to cover the oasis inside the pot.
And there you have it a gorgeous little Topiary paper tree...enjoy
