I created this topiary  as an Easter centerpiece - - I think it would also be lovely for Mother's day!

I folded and stapled 3 cupcake liners at a time to create "carnations" and then dipped the edges in Helmar Gemstone Glue, then into Art Glitter and then glued them to a styrofoam ball.

I wrapped the dowel in ribbon, poured plaster of paris into a small terra cotta pot and let mostly set before sticking in the topiary - - it is VERY top heavy!



Close up to show glitter:

Oh what a good idea - very effective and sounds simple to do. I am thinking that it would work just as well as a bunch of flowers, each 'bud' attached to a stem like a pipe cleaner. I am going to look out for some suitable cup cake cases and try it! Thanks.
