Yesterday, I shared my fall vignette. Don’t you love the little gold pumpkins? Me too. My favorite part though; the DIY topiaries. They anchor the whole vignette while giving it some height.
Today, I’m going to share how to make a Coffee Filter Topiary.
I started out with these styrofoam balls.And began hot gluing and pinning coffee filters all around. The best strategy for this seemed to sticking your finger or pencil in the middle of the coffee filter then folding the filters in half and then half again, then hot glue to the styrofoam ball, gluing around in a circle then gluing the filters to the top and bottom.
Once the ball is covered in nice fluffy coffee filters, stick a wooden dowel in the center of your ball. My dowels were about 18 inches each.
For the burlap pot, I covered a plain terra cotta pot with burlap then stuffed another styrofoam ball inside the pot sticking the other end of the dowel into the styrofoam ball and hot glued it into place.
So simple right? I just love the way it turned out. They look great in my fall vignette. For a fall look, I wrapped some raffia around the topiary and added a little faux autumn sprig. The best part about the coffee filter topiary is that you can carry it over to Christmas or use it all year round. Love!
