Ok, I love, love, LOVE West Elm! They have the best ideas in the backgrounds of their photos. Their furniture is a little too modern sometimes for my taste, but I really love the overall “look” of their items.
I love topiaries! I’m not too sure why, I just do! So it dawned on me that I could make a topiary the same way I made my faux moss balls!
So, I went to the Dollar Store and bought two foam balls. I then added moss (left over from the first project) to them and then went into the back yard and searched for the perfect stick! Then I pushed the balls onto the stick, got another piece of foam and placed it in a mercury glass (obsessed, by the way) vase. For a finished look, I added some moss on top of the foam sitting in the vase so you can’t see the ugly foam that the stick is stuck in!
Here is what I did with one of my moss balls:
I took an old candle holder that was bras (and just 67 cents at the thrift store!), spray painted it, placed the moss ball on top and set it on the mantle!
Just a different way to display them! And I must admit, it looks really great on the mantle!
