I just love all of the ways that felt can dress up your Valentine’s Mantle Decor. This time I’ve used felt to make topiaries, set atop dollar store glass vases. This project is oh so cheap, and easy enough for anyone to do! Follow along for a step by step guide with pictures.
Valentine’s Felt Topiary Tutorial
First you’ll need your supplies. For this project I used (3) 3″ Styrofoam balls from Wal-Mart. (8) sheets of felt for each of the three colors you pick, one pack of straight pins, 3 random glass vases from the Dollar Store and scissors.
First thing first you will need to cut out A LOT of circles, I used 80-90 of each color. To make the cutting faster I layered several sheets of felt so I could cut several circles at once. I used the first circle I cut for a template for the rest, just cutting around it to make the new circles. Here’s HALF the stack you’ll need for each color.
Next you’ll take one circle and fold it in half.
Then in half again.
Now take a straight pin and go through all the layers at the very bottom tip of the triangle like so.
Then pin it to your styrofoam ball, and repeat for the next 89 or so. You can leave a little space between each pin since the top of the petals really fill out a lot of space.
Then just take your balls and place on top glass vases at varying heights, and you’re done! Super cute felt ball topiaries for $10 or less
