Cheater Topiary


I just have to share with you how I made my cheater topiary. They are cheater, because they only cost me a few bucks to purchase two dowels. You can't beat that price.

My front porch urns were already filled with boxwood so this was a good jumping off point. I stuck dowels that I spray painted brown right into the dirt. Then I pushed two different sizes of styrofoam balls covered in sheet moss, which I had leftover from a previous aesthetic, straight through the dowels.

Next came the fun part. I went around to the side of my house and trimmed up the boxwood in my landscaping, clipped the branches into smaller pieces, and just stuck them all over into the styrofoam balls. The look was finished off with a strand of twinkle lights!
