Easy Moss Covered Topiaries

I’m starting to get worried for my #1 boo, Burlap, because lately moss has been the word in my house (anyone start sing “Grease is the Word” ? No? Weirdos).

I am really digging these moss sheets lately because they lend themselves to some easy and fast crafts especially these easy moss covered topiaries

Moss Topiary 3

This is a really easy one, so the directions are a little sparse, but seriously, you really don’t need directions…

What You’ll Need:

1. A package of moss. Like this.

2. Styrofoam cones

3. Green Paint and Paint of your choice for your flowerpot.

4. A Flowerpot or two

5. burlap scraps and some twine.

6. Raffia (optional).

7. Hot glue and a hot glue gun.

8. A stick (I got my sticks from my hedges).

9. Loose Moss

What You’ll Do:

1. Paint the bottom of the cones (just in case someone gets up close and personal with your topiary, it will look green from the bottom..)
