Rosette Topiary

I found a cute idea online for making a topiary. We just purchased a console table and needed to create a front entry space. Here is the finished topiary.

I bought two balls of twig from Hobby Lobby. One was 5'' the other was 6''. I cut a wooden dowel to about 16'' and painted it brown. It was not hard to glue the twigs onto the dowel. I made sure that everything was even then I hot glued everything into place. In the bottom of the flower pot (I also found at Hobby Lobby) I placed a styrofoam half circle in and filled the vase with glass marbles.
I made a lot of large rosettes to put on the topiary. I used four different fabrics and started hot gluing them from the top.

Here we have the flowers on and I included pearls to go all around as well.

Here is our front entrance with the topiary on the table.

Ta da!!! Here it is. I included ribbon under each of the balls and if it seems lopsided the shadows where affecting the picture.

How cute. Our entry turned out great.
