DIY Topiaries~Countdown to Spring and Link Party~

~Hi Friends~

I’m super excited to kick off our Countdown to Spring Party with some of my favorite blog friends! Spring is just around the corner and I can’t wait, I’m ready for some warm weather. I spent some time this week making some topiaries for our dinning room table. Something about greens mixed with white reminds me that Spring is just around the corner.

This project took about an hour a topiary but it was super easy, all you need is some faux greenery, hot glue and a foam cone.

I took a chopstick (a pencil would work fine) and poked holes.

I Inserted the greens into each hole.  I had a hard time keeping a few of them in place so I put a dab of hot glue on the end before inserting.

Keep going until you get to the top and have them stick straight up for height.

I placed them on top of two pots and voila, simple, spring tablescape.
