    Very, very cute! I checked out the bunny topiary post, and I love that, too! I think I'll be putting a couple of these together.

    So cute and very clever! I love the look of topiaries, but they are usually really expensive in the store and styrofoam is pretty expensive too! I love that you made your own form!

    I too am a usker for moss! I can't believe you covered wadded up paper. I'll have to remember that! But I think my favorite of the 3 projects is that adorable bird. Love it in the little copper bucket!

    Well, how clever are you? I would have waited until I could a styro ball when I should be figuring out how to make one. Great job!

    I love, love, LOVE that you made it out of wadded up paper! I love being able to make things with what I already have on hand. Thanks so much for sharing this idea!!!!

    I love them all. It's great that you didn't have to spring for the styrofoam all with the round one. I think the little bird topiary is just adorable!

    Your writing is as good as the projects you do. They make me smile and my secretary is falling in love with you. She is charmed and amazed by it everytime I show her. Keep up the good work. Love and hugs.

    Oh my gosh those are so cute. I have a confession… worse than too many topiary's I don't have any. But by the grace of God I stumbled onto your site where I have been inspired.. thank you sister.

    Super, super cute. I think instead of wacky, though, you shall be known as the wonderful girl who creates things with moss and sticks. I wonder if that could be converted to an Indian name.

    Very cool.

    What a great idea! And here I am banging my head every time I walk out of Michaels without picking up some foam balls to make topiaries. I have two empty urns just screaming for these things. This is going in my projects binder!
