Topiary Love: Easy Letter Topiaries


I love a good topiary in pretty much any shape or size.  I've made all kinds of them & shared them with you since I started this blog, and my latest ones are part of my Valentine decor (coming soon).


These little letter topiaries have endless possibilities & they're super-easy to make.





I started with these chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby, found near the scrapbook supplies.  You could also cut a letter from sturdy cardboard or use a wooden one.






Next, I painted them green with a little craft paint.






Once they were dry, I heated up the glue gun & covered each letter with this dried floral moss...


















Next, I used a stick from my yard, cut into equal lengths, to make the little trunks.  Another blob on hot glue holds the letter to the top of the stick.






Then, I secured them into my little containers with styrofoam & covered it with a little more moss.








I'm telling you--super easy!  Everybody needs a mossy-intial topiary, right?  I'm going to get my "R" as soon as I can get back to Hobby Lobby.


Wouldn't this make a cute housewarming gift?  Make one for yourself & a friend, too.  I'll meet you in the moss aisle!

Meanwhile, I'm sharing this little project with a few of these crafty sites!  Check them out!
