Nautical Themed Rolled Paper Topiary - Summer Mantel 2013
I have made these before for my home decor. They are so easy and fun to make that I had to make another one for my summer mantel.
Here are my supplies:
Paper Collection from Fancy Pants called Down by the Shore
Topiary (from Hobby Lobby)
Straight Pins (with small head)
I cut my paper into 1/2 inch by 12 inch strips. I use my bone folder to curl the paper.
The I use a straight pin to pin the paper into the topiary.
Keep curling and pinning until you have the desired fullness for the topiary.
Here is a close-up picture. I like mine very full and fluffy.
I loved the colors in this paper collection and designed the rest of my mantel using these colors.
This project is easy but time consuming. This is a good project to work on while watching TV or a movie.
The chicken wire basket is the one I have been using for all of my topiaries. It came from Hobby Lobby.
I use my leftover curls to fill the basket so that you don't see the bottom of the topiary.
I will be back with more summer mantel projects this week and will do a video tour once I have shared all of my projects.
Thanks for looking!!
See you on the next post.
