Rolled Flower Topiary

Today I want to share with you my rolled flower topiary. 



I actually made this in January 2013. At the time, blogger was having issues and I couldn't upload any photos.


I got this back out for my 2014 winter mantel and remembered that I needed to share it with you all.


Here is what the topiary looks like plain.  I find these at my local Hobby Lobby.





For the rolled flowers I used lace ribbon, canvas, and burlap.  


I had everything on hand and didn't have to buy anything other than the topiary and basket. 


I rolled each material into a flower and glued it on directly to the topiary using hot glue. 


To fill in the gaps, I added neutral colored pearls.

In this picture you can see the different textures that each piece of material adds to the topiary. 




I show this project up close in the video below from 2013. 





I don't have any pictures of how I put this project together. 

I used other YouTube tutorial videos that already exist to teach myself how to make the rolled flowers.

Here are some choices if you would like to learn how to make rolled flowers. 


I placed the topiary into a chicken wire basket that I found at Hobby Lobby.


I filled in around the base with curled scrapbook pieces to add some color and hide the green base.




I love this piece so much. 

I will keep it on my mantel through spring and just fill in the bottom with some spring colored paper curls.

Thank you for looking.

  2. Beautiful! I love the classy look of the lace and the beads. I've never made a topiary, I need to add that to my list of things to try.
