Tissue Paper Rosette Topiary

I love all of the Valentine's Day crafts I have been seeing everywhere in blog land.  So I wanted to make something.  I saw these cute tissue paper rosettes here and I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them.  I am obsessed with topiaries so I decided to make one using the rosettes.  The total for the topiary was around $13.  Here is what you need to make the topiary:

  • 5" foam ball
  • 1 roll of crepe paper
  • A fun vase or bowl for the base of the topiary and a foam square - Mine is from HL.
  • A 12" dowel for the topiary stick
  • Moss to top the base
  • Ribbon
  • Glue gun

First I made the rosettes for the topiary ball.  I used this tutorial from You Tube.  You start with 24" piece of paper.  

Crumple it up to give it some texture.  Then fold down the top 1/3.  

Start on one side and make small rolls. Once you have a few rolls you are going to fold (or twist) the paper from top to bottom.  

Then continue to roll.  Once the twist is out fold down the top again.  Finish rolling and folding down until paper runs out and the rosette will look like this.  

Then you hot glue it to the foam ball.  Continue this until you have covered the ball with rosettes.  This is pretty time consuming as you can tell by my photos.  I obviously started at night after Sawyer's bedtime and finished the next day during nap time.  

Once the ball is finished you can make the topiary.  Push the foam square into the base.

The next step is inserting the dowel.  The dowel I used was 12" long and I spray painted it white with leftover spray paint.

Take out the dowel and put some hot glue in the hole and then reinsert the dowel.  Hot glue around the dowel.  

Next is the topiary ball.  Find the center and insert the dowel.  Remove the dowel and add some hot glue.  Then replace the ball on the dowel.  

I topped the base with moss that was hot glued to hide the foam.  

I added a cute Valentine's Day ribbon.  What do you think?  I will have a separate blog post about giving my entry way console a V-Day makeover.

  63. Yan Liang recovered, is contemptuous tone: "Why do you all think I'm in for her, instead of her for 2015 Hyperdunks?"

    Do not wait for him to say a word, nike kobe 11 turn left.

    Let nike kobe 10 call her name in the back, but also a moment not to stay.

    Yuanjialuzhai, Kobe 10 Shoes did not expect to escape the return encounter in the elevator FUJIAN SCHOOL.

    Elevator doors opened, two outside the door of a fight face to face, all is robust.

    FUJIAN SCHOOL react first, out of the elevator, immediately looked up and down Nike Kobe 10: "? How willing to come back?"

    Yan Liang wrinkled brow: "You seem not qualified to speak with this tone with Kobe 11."

    "Lebron 14 was in for dad to ask you. You do not go home New Year last year, is now home to a mess you non-stop to come back, Lebron 13 Shoes is hard not to think of you this is going to have a share in disarray."

    Lebron 14 Shoes bypassed her left, was stopped: "how left?"

    "If you do not want to fan Lebron 14 Shoes like I did last time, now give me out of the way."
    Lebron 13 Shoes smiled: "You do not say I have forgotten, I'd really want to thank you for that slap, not the case, how can Nike Hyperdunk 2015 cry to the father to so many shares?"

    Hyperdunk 2015 has been to restrain clenched teeth.

    "You do not know, then how angry your mother when Nike Kobe 10 is willing to let my mom at the door, because an agreement: I can not fight you can share with How about Kobe 10 Shoes, slap your mother ruined so many years of hard work , if I do, she can not be mad at non. "

    Nike Kobe 10 rage against laughter. AND FUJIAN SCHOOL elegant face is different, Kobe 10 Shoes was quite Ye Yan's facial features, so laugh,
    seemed almost arrogant: "You do not know that, of the two men` baby milk have a natural psychological compensation Nike Kobe Shoes owes you? So much, so far can not afford even the birthright also give your mother, your child follow your mother to go home to visit relatives every year,
