Cup Cake Liner Topiaries

Need something to do while watching TV? This is a tedious craft but well worth it! I've seen it done different ways but here is how I go about making cup cake liner topiaries. 

What you will need:
Glue gun and several glue sticks
Foam ball
Cup cake liners (I used 75 liners on each ball)
Straight pins with a head

1. Push a pin through the cup cake liner.

2. Scrunch the liner at the base and around the pin.

3. Put a small amount of hot glue on the ball and insert the pin. 

Continue step 3 until the entire ball is full or you can leave the bottom exposed. I knew I wanted to display mine on candle sticks, so I drew a line around the ball to use a stopping point. 


Such diverse little topiaries they are! Lovely for holidays, birthdays, rustic weddings, baby showers....
