I love topiaries…the height, the simplicity, the elegance. They make a huge statement in any decor but the price of one can be ridiculous. Ballard Designs sells the ones pictured below for $49.00 – $89.00. WOW! I made mine for a fraction of the cost and they look just as beautiful.
Cast of characters used to create my topiary…
I purchased my topiary forms and galvanized buckets from Save On Crafts.
Topiary Tree Forms Floral Foam Double Ball (3in & 5in Ball ) Topiary Trees 21in
Galvanized Bucket in Silver 5in
I spray painted the bucket white and used gold acrylic paint to create a gold band around it to add a little character to the look.
I love the finished topiary. The gold band adds color and contrast to it.
Total cost for one topiary- $12.00 and I still had plenty of paint and moss to make a few more.
