Valentine Topiary

I saw tons of the cute valentine wreaths made out of cupcake liners this year. I love them. (see here) I however, like things HUGE. I wanted a huge wreath. I could not find a styrofoam wreath big enough. So I decided to do a topiary. I used cupcake liners that I found at walmart. A wooden dowel. I found this super cute vase for 50% off at Micheals.

*Take a pencil and poked a hole in the styrofoam.
*Wrap cupcake liner around the pencil
*put hot glue in the hole
*stuff the pencil w/liner in!
*It took me 8 packages of liners
*paint the dowel
*stick it in the ball.
* pull out and put hot glue in
* put styrofoam in the the vase and put other end of dowel in
* put moss on top
