What you need:
- Child's bouncy ball- size to be determined by you, I picked the biggest one I could find :)
- Black Spray Paint
- Spray Adhesive
Let's Get Started!Gather your supplies.
- Bouncy ball from Wal-Mart, $2.00
- Two different kinds of mosses, one artificial kind from Wal-Mart to cover the bulk of the ball and a bag of actual dried moss from Michael's to accent.
- Found a planter at a thrift store for $0.25 and sprayed it black
Spray your planter and bouncy ball black or some other colored base to conceal writing, cartoons, etc. You don't need to completely cover it, a light coat will suffice.
Spray sections of your bouncy ball with the adhesive and attach the moss. I found it helpful to have the ball already glued onto the planter base.
Voilà an inexpensive topiary with zero upkeep! LOVE IT! Can't wait to make smaller ones for other areas in the house.
Here it is in my work-in-progress front room. Thinking about putting it next to my front door instead. What do you think?
