|The Goodey Knot|
At the end of the day I love how they turned out but man, I didn't think I was ever going to get them finished! It took sooooo long to cut all the burlap circles and each topiary took soooo many circles.
Here were the steps (using some of The Goodey Knot's photos because I forgot to take my own- sorry!):
|Spray paint some wooden dowels|
|Stick foam balls into the dowels|
Then cover the Styrofoam balls with strips of burlap.
Cut out a boat load of burlap circles using a can or cup as a template.
Fold each burlap circle into a flower shape and sew it together at the bottom. (I made one topiary by rolling the circles rather than folding- the one on the left- just to see how that would look. It ended up taking way more circles than the others and was thus way heavier so I'm not sure I would recommended it unless you really preferred the look.)
I clipped the point at the bottom of the circles off to give myself a wider surface to hot glue onto the burlap balls.
Hot glue each flower onto the ball until it's covered.
Sit back and admire your work!
