Topiaries are a farmhouse style home decor classic and work beautifully for any season. Here’s how to make your own farmhouse style DIY moss topiaries!
DIY Moss Topiaries
I’ve always thought the little mini topiaries that have been popular for so quite some time now were really cute and honestly I’m not too sure why it took me so long to figure out a way to make my own version. Now that I’ve made these, they seem like such a perfect decorating staple for a farmhouse like mine and I’m not totally sure how I ever lived without them.

For me, this little project started out with finding the perfect containers. These would look great in simple terra cotta pots, but I found these two little mini urns on clearance at Michael’s a few weeks ago and I knew it was meant to be!
I chose the green styrofoam from the floral section of the craft store just incase anything showed through, but now that I’ve seen how well the moss covers everything, I’d say just use whatever you can find.

Now for the fun part! Tear off a small section of moss from your bag o’ moss, about 3 square inches or so, apply a little hot glue and stick it to the cone. Then do it again!
