An update to my Topiary tutorial

I have another example of a super easy way to create a prim topiary. I actually came across this way on accident. I was going through my floral stash to see if I could get rid of some things and I had a lot of stems with a few flowers or berries on them. I looked at the stem and thought to myself, this would be great for a topiary. So, with my scraps I created this little gem.

I used a stem from a faux berry branch that I had stripped of berries. A few stray sprigs of greenary. And some brown floral tape.

 I first cut the stem to the size I needed. Next I took the stray floral sprigs and floral tape and taped them to the top of the stem. Stuck it in a pot I already had and added some grass to the top.

And there you have it. A cute little prim topiary that was SUPER EASY to make. And all you need is some scraps you may have laying around like I did. So, save those floral stems!!!!
