Bring Some Brightness To Your Home With Spring Topiaries

There’s something about topiary that I’ve always loved in home decor. Of course live topiary are great but sometimes they are not practical for indoors depending on you lighting and other factors. So in an effort to brighten our home and welcome spring, I decided to make a pair.
I used the pots I painted in my painted pigment pots post, a dowel rod, some Styrofoam balls and some reindeer moss.
First I used hot glue to attach the reindeer moss to the Styrofoam balls. Did you know that reindeer moss is not a moss but a lichen? Apparently deer like to eat it and its branches resemble antlers.
Next I used a little brown pigment to stain the dowel rod and cut it down to the size I wanted.
I placed some more Styrofoam into the pots and used the dowel rods to connect the ball to the pot.
For a final touch I added a little moss around the base of the dowel rod to complete the look.
Spring is just around the corner. I can’t wait.
