This is the cutest thing I have ever seen and I totally made it! I somehow found it on someone’s blog and have no idea where it was now, but I googled it and BAM, I found the directions! It is so easy to do!
You start with some sort of a bucket or pot to put it in. A Styrofoam ball( whatever size you want), a wooden dowel, push pins, whatever color ribbon you want. I went with four different colors. You also need the foam for your pot to hold the topiary in place.
First, I cut all of my ribbon in 4-4.5 inch strips. ( Side note: It took about 4 15 ft spools of ribbon for one topiary.)
Put the dowel about half way through the styrofoam ball and make sure that it is in the center and not wonky looking.
Make a loop with the ribbon, making sure the ends overlap, and push a pin through it and into the styrofoam ball.
I had no rhyme or reason to how I was putting the ribbon in, I just eyeballed it.
I painted my dowel white, but you could glue some ribbon around it and it would be super cute!
The finished product!
You need to glue some grass or shredded paper in the pot to cover up the foam, but I used some glittery beads.
I am super proud of this! It didn’t take long and it was so easy. I am going to make another one and they are going on my dining room table for Christmas decorations. I’ll take a picture of the finished product, but I ran out of ribbon for the other topiary.
Hope you enjoyed my little craft!
