CRAFTS: DIY Holiday Yarn Topiaries
Step 1: Get your flowers leaves and buds all finished, that way the gluing with a hot glue gun will go quickly. Remember, you need to have two of every thing if you are making two topiaries to decorate an entry way table, buffet for mantle. Also keep in mind, from a design perspective, you want the topiaries near each other so thin about how they look together. Because I am going to make my flowers along one side going up the other, I decided to have a mirror image on the other topiary. If you wish to simplify yours, make your design more centrally focused, and then they should look good next to each other.
Step five: Begin with your main flowers and glue them on. I started in one corner, creating a central focus of flowers, and then lessened them visually as the "grew" towards the top. Working outward and up, glue the smaller flower and buds. Add accent leaves, and finally add beads strategically around as light accents. I also added a bead in the middle of the small, flat petal flowers to give them a "middle" and make them less boring.
