Hello sweet friends.
I wanted to share with you this little topiary for a couple reasons. First...I made it awhile ago during my blog hiatus and I thought it would be fun to share now that I am back in the bloggy swing of things.
But secondly, I wanted to provide a nice picture tutorial that will help those who have been inquiring about my White Ruffly Spring Wreaths and looking for a tutorial. I actually get several emails a week inquiring on how to make them so I hope to do a vlog how-to but until I can actually get to that...this should do nicely for those who are still unsure how to make the ruffles.
You will be excited that they are super easy. Just time consuming to finish but OH SO WORTH IT.
Let's get to it, shall we?
So here's what I used for my project:
Material cut into 2-3 inch circles
(amount depends on size of project)
Styrofoam ball (size optional)
Stick from my yard (yay for free!)
Terra cotta pot that I distress painted
Moss as a top filler
So far so good...
And literally that's it. There's your first ruffle.
Continue placing your ruffles all over your ball and your done!
After I finished ruffling up the styrofoam ball, I used a stick for the post and placed it in the pot, anchoring it with newspaper and topped it off with some moss I had on hand. A good tip I have read somewhere (probably pinterest) is to anchor it with spray foam.
I use what I got, folks. You get me.
Well that's about it. Hope you enjoyed this little mini tutorial.
Have an incredibly blessed week sweet friends.
