Good morning my fellow crafty peeps! I am excited to be participating in the Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! Today I have a Christmas Topiary! I have a friend who LOVES pink and I thought I would make her a tree to match her craft room!
The base of the tree is a flower pot that is so sparkly in real life!And since I am a girl who is all about the sparkle, why not make the star on the top of the tree shimmer too?
It was an easy project to make and here are some of the supplies you will need.
1. white paint
2. Pink paint
3. flower pot
4. cardboard cone
I painted the pot white and the cone pink. You may be wondering why since it was going to be covered with flowers. I like to do this to camouflage any gaps there might be.
These were the colors I used on my tree! Who says you have to make them green?
I used Scrapbook Adhesives Dual tip pen to assemble the flowers and add silver micro beads to the centers. I did this in assembly line fashion! Once the flowers were dry ( I waited until the next day) I used a hot glue gun to adhere them to the cone.
I cut two stars using a Spellbinder's star die. I used a sheet of music note scrapbook paper to add a vintage feel to the project.
I gave each star a coating of glossy accents and sprinkled Diamond Dust glitter over it.
I adhered them to a wooden dowel and used clips to glue it into place until it was dry.
I added a silk ribbon.
I glued the star/dowel to the opening at the top of the cone.
I am so glad you were able to hop along with us!
Hope you leave here inspired!
