This urn from an old Christmas tree was left at GW.
It was marked a bit higher than I like to pay, but it went in my basket anyway.
It was nice and sturdy and had this left-over pole from the tree. perfect.
I added green paint to a styrofoam ball...
...and let it dry thoroughly.
Putting it on this dowel really made it easy to paint...
kinda looks like science fair project, doesn't it?
Then the green ball was pushed onto the leftover tree pole.
Next, I snipped apart the greenery and used a toothpick to make a small hole for the "stem" of the snipping.
After taking the toothpick out and adding a drop of hot glue, the topiary was taking shape.
It was kinda mindless work, great therapy at the end of a long day, right?
And here's the finished product.
Now, just look at this sad, sad arrangement.
I know, very sad...but the urn?
Yep.With the left over supplies from the first project and a new styrofoam ball, a second one was made to keep the first one company.
I'm joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for her Metomophosis Monday.
Thanks for visiting!
