I thought I should share another post with a new project creating small decorations with inspiration from farmhouse style design. As you probably know by now, I really enjoy buying items from the Dollar Tree and turn them into beautiful items to display in the apartment. This project turned out really great and I’m really excited to share it with you. Let’s jump into it, below you will find the instructions and products needed in order to complete these two projects.
What you need for the first project:
- Dollar Tree items:
- Hobby Lobby items:
I added twine (this is optional) around the tin bin. Use as little glue as possible in order to make sure you will have an flat surface around the bin. The next step is to cut the flower foam into a round shape so it fits inside the bin. Once that is done, cut the hardwood dowel into a smaller piece and paint it with the wood colored paint. In this phase, you can decide how high you want the topiary to be. Make sure it has the right hight so it fits with the size of the tin bin. You don’t want the topiary to be bigger then the tin bin because then the decor may fall and not be as stable.
The next step is to cut a few pieces from the fall wreath and add it into the bin along with the hardwood dowel. This will give the topiary a more realistic look with the wood sticks. If you want, you can collect wood sticks from a tree outside. The next step is to choose the size of the white foam craft ball you want for your mini topiary. Remember, when you add the topiary leaves to the ball the plant will look bigger. You can probably find a mini topiary ball online or at a store to save you time from this process. I didn’t find anything so I choose to buy a medium sized topiary from Hobby Lobby and cut the leaves from it. I also used a 40% coupon to save some money. Once you have cut enough pieces glue each individual piece into the white craft ball. Once you are done, add the mini topiary on the dowel and wood sticks. Viola! You’re done.
What you need for the second project:
This DIY is a lot easier and less time consuming compared to the first one. First thing you will need to do is to cut the foam flower block into a smaller size in order to fit into the tin bin. Next step is to cut the flowers into shorter pieces and place them into the bin. In addition, use your glue gun if you want to make sure that the flowers stay in place inside the flower foam. Once the flowers are in place add the white marble stones to complete your piece. Easy!
