This last fall I wanted to make a wreath and found the tuturial to make this beautiful burlap wreath on the blog Top This Top That. Her instructions are super easy to follow. Right now I don't have any embellishments on it but hope to decorate it with the seasons. I hope that you have as much fun making one as I did. :)
How to make your own topiary
I have been wanting two matching topiary's in our entry way but found that they can get rather expensive. So I went on the hunt to make my own and it came out super easy and pretty cheap. I ended up buying all of my items at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I have downloaded their app to my phone along with Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Jo-Ann's honors other stores coupons, as well as their own, of course. Which really brought down the price of my project. So everything I purchased was 40 to 50% off. I love it!!
What you need:
- 2 box wood balls (or any type of ball that you like made out of whatever faux plant you are wanting)
- 2 sticks (you can buys sticks but to make my project cheaper I cut two sticks from the backyard)
- rocks (which I also got from the backyard) :)
- 2 buckets or pots
First you take your boxwood ball and place it on the stick. I used the scissors I used to cut the sticks to make a point on one end of the stick so it would go into the ball easier and stay.
Second, I placed the stick into the empty pot and placed the rocks all around the stick till it could stand straight on it's own.

Lastly, I have a beautiful topiary for my entry way that only cost about $10 a piece to make.
