Why is it that, faced with the overwhelming task of moving my family to San Francisco, I start doing little projects around the house? For a couple of weeks over the summer, I was fanatical about getting piddley stuff done instead of the obvious jobs of packing, organizing and moving. Oh, well.
Here's an example of what I am talking about. I love the little greenery ball in this inspiration photo. Can't remember where I saw it, though.
I got some fake greenery from Hobby Lobby, as well as a foam ball. I already had the base, also originally from Hobby Lobby a few years ago.
I cut the greenery into manageable pieces, and then spent some time sticking each piece into the foam. No glue gun, just lots of poking.
Eventually I ended up with a slightly fuller topiary than my inspiration photo, but still...not bad!
