I'm not done with my Valentine's Day decorating yet.
This time I created a vignette on my upstairs hallway table.
I knew I wanted to create a topiary, but wasn't sure what I was going to use to make it. Then I looked in my gift wrap drawer and was inspired.
I created the topiary using tissue paper I had in the house (previously used in fact).
Here's what you need to create your own topiary:
4 sheets of tissue paper (I used two light pink, one hot pink and one white)
candlestick (or a little vase would work well too)
First I cut two inch wide strips of tissue paper.
Starting at one end I gathered the tissue paper and gathered it as I turned it in my fingers.
I kept gathering it and turning it.
You really can't mess this up...you just keep gathering it until it resembles a rose.
Depending on how tight you gather it will determine the fullness of the flower.
Then using a straight pin, I simply attached the flower from it's base
(where I was holding it with my fingers) into the styrofoam ball.
I continued to do this until almost all of the styrofoam ball was covered with flowers.
Then I simply sat it on top of a crystal candlestick holder.
Easy peasy!! I promise.
So pretty, yet so simple.
As for the rest of the vignette, I looked around my home and gathered anything with hearts.
All I did was cut the striped paper to fit the frame and then cut out the birds
and the LOVE into a smaller square. Then I just
placed it into the silver frame I already had.
I also had a crystal heart frame. I cut a pink heart out of the left over scrapbook
paper and placed it in the frame as a background. Then I hung some heart
jewelry I own over the frame.
To finish it off, I used left over fabric and laid it over the table as a tablecloth.
It's amazing what you can find in your own home.
