Topiary Dry Run

Happy Saturday!!

I was checking all the blogs that I follow and I was so excited and honored that I was featured over at Hannah's site Young and Crafty.  She has an adoreable site so if you haven't checked her out, hop on over and tell her that Laura sent you.  She is hosting a linky party which is always a good way to check out all the other fantastic ideas out there :)  Thank you Hannah!!


I was working yesterday on a dry run for some ideas I had for the reception so I decided to put together a topiary for a few of the decorations.  Not exactly where they will all go but I have an idea so we'll see.  Like I said this isn't detailed out the way the final ones will be but you get the idea lol.  Here is all I used:
Floral Foam (but will use styrofoam with the real one)
Wrapping Tissue
Wooden Dowle
Ceramic Pot
Spanish Moss
All I did was start ripping the tissue paper and took a pen and wrapped it around the end and stuck it in the foam.  Easy :)
I also was playing with fabric ribbon and these were my first 2.  I have watched a few videos on Youtube.  I still have more fine tuning to do but I'm getting the hang of it I think lol

This is a new blog I found and hop on over for this great giveaway :)  Kristen has some awesome things on her website.  Hop on over :)
