Mini Topiary Tutorial

Looking for a fun little decoration?  How about one of these?
What you need-
2 Empty spool (mine are wood)
2 wooden skewers
brown floral tape
Green yarn pom pom, 2 large 2 small
Hot glue gun
Glitter and glitter glue of choice
String
Old book page or other paper for bunting

Glitter your spools and set aside to dry, I used Martha Stewart glitter in Copper.
Wrap your skewers in the brown floral tape the push through larger pom.  Hot glue the smaller pom to the top of the skewer.
Squeeze some hot glue into the center of the spool and secure the skewer into it.
Cut a length of string and desired number of flags for your bunting.  Secure the flags onto the string.  Spread a dob of hot glue inside each small top pom and secure the ends of the bunting.
With a glue pen I wrote "JOY" and added a bit of glitter to the flags.
All done!

Enjoy!
