Ornament Topiary

Hello Friends
Today I wanted to share with you all this ornament tree topiary that I made. I have seen these in stores but they always were to pricey and I didn't want to pay to much for it. So I decide to make my very own and wanted to share with you how I did it. It was a bit challenging but then I figure a way on how to cover it so it won't show the form and look nice.

The supplies you will need!
Styrofoam Cone
Ornament ball in varies of sizes in your choice of color
Hot Glue Gun
Glue ( I used Mod Podge glue)
Foam Paint Brush
Big bottle of glitter also in your choice of color

First gather all your supplies and start gluing the cone. On the second image you will see that I did not glue it and started adding the balls but after I had done the whole things it had shown to much gaps and the form was showing to much, so at that time I decide to add glitter to it. This was really hard because I had finish the entire cone by adding and hot gluing the balls together. So as you see from my mistake go on and glue and glitter your cone before you add your balls. Let the glitter dry over night!

This image shows you the way I did it at first, if you don't want to bother with glitter you will start by adding your balls in the sizes that you want to use. I first gather my balls and start pushing them into the foam all around to see how it looks then I take the balls out one by one and start hot gluing them on one by one. You can also spray paint or paint your cone if you don't want to use glitter. I like the glitter better cause I like Bling!!!

See here how you can see the foam I didn't like that. That's why I  glitter it and boy was it hard because I should of done this at the beginning of the project. Hey we all learn from our mistake LOL!

 Here is the finish look after I glitter it all which was so time consuming and hard cause you didn't want to add glue to your balls, I used a tiny paint brush and it work out.
 Learn from my mistake 

 You will glue the cone in steps then add your glitter. 
What I did I glue the cone half way then glitter it and then I did the other half.
 Sorry I forgot to take picture's of this process!

 This is the finish look what do you think!

Hope you all enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
Hugs and Blessing
