Felt flower topiary

Who says I have an obsession with topiaries?
I love them.
I have all kinds throughout my house.
I have made most of them.
Topiaries make me smile.
So, this is what I did.


 After cutting out tons of white felt circles,
 I folded each circle in 1/2 and then in 1/2 again-
glued it to the 1/2 circle of Styrofoam and repeat, repeat , repeat,
over and over again!


 After all that folding and gluing is done,
this is what you get!!

I love how the folded scraps of felt,
 give the illusion of roses,
don't you think?

This is by far, one of my most favorite things
 I've made in the new year!!

Well, take care, gotta fly- Claire

  1. Love this one. It's so beautiful! Add tiny pearls, some lace to each "petal", and some glitter and you would have a gorgeous bridal shower centerpiece .... for when that time comes!
