Fall Flowers Topiary

Today's "No Function Friday" project is a super simple and cheap one!

I used the flowers I had leftover from the my Leopard Pumpkins project, a foam ball and foam floral thingy from the Dollar Tree, 4 shish-kabob skewers, jute, glue, a plant holder I had laying around, and tissue paper (also leftover from the pumpkins project).

I took the 4 skewers and shoved them, pointy side, into the foam ball. Then I dipped the flowers into some craft glue and stuck them randomly into the ball.


I put glue on one side of the skewers and wrapped jute, which I already had, all the way around. Then I got some of the floral foam stuff and put it into a little metal bucket I had out in the garage.

I wrapped the bucket with tissue paper that was leftover from the pumpkins project and tied a little piece of ribbon (also from the Dollar Tree) around the base…and voila!

Fall Flower Topiary:

I can’t wait for fall!!!! 

Seriously, I want to put on my jeans and a warm cozy sweater!  I want to wear socks and shoes again...not just sandals!  I want to cook chili and bake stuff with pumpkin in it!

We are supposed to have some more fall like temperatures here in Indy this weekend!! And I can’t wait! 

I will be in the yard this weekend since it will finally be cool enough for me to enjoy again! There are beds to be finished this year before it gets too cold. (I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it yet…but I love to garden as well!) I’ve been slowly transforming my yard since I purchased my home. It was extremely unhealthy, no flower beds or any real beauty to speak of. So, it’s been a slowww process, but a labor of love.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!!! And don’t forget to check back Monday evening to see which logo won and who won the frames!

I've added daily party links on my sidebar for all the parties I will link my projects to!  As beautiful as everyone's little linky buttons are, this will really save me A LOT of time every week by doing it this way!
Until next time…

  15. Still the health concerns mar the overall positive sides of
    this economic growth as people take their health problems as the cost of development
    which is indeed pretty higher. Just focus on one herb at a time that suits your present needs.

    From my experience, it is quite difficult to style
    hair immediately after a hot oil treatment, so you might
    want to skip the curling iron or hot rollers. Essential oils are
    very good agents to make the hair grow stronger, fuller and
    thicker.

  16. Use oils that can help keep your hair soft and manageable.

    It can also be left in the hair as a conditioner but it may be hard to
    explain the tomatoes. Quality Omega 3 fish oils are generally derived from cold-water fishes like mackerel, sardines, salmon, and tuna.
    When choosing a treatment for your own hair, pick something organically grown
    or natural as opposed to something fabricated. There are
    many products these days that can help with keeping your hair in good condition but what of oils.

  17. These were referred to as Linotype and Intertype
    machines. Purchasing used press will also save you considerable
    amount of money. He becomes a different person once he dons his uniform to the sound

    But I made it to a telephone and called Vito Genovese who was at that time

  18. One of her most popular products are her organic vegetable
    seedlings, especially the tomatoes, which are cool-weather varieties that do well on California's foggy Central Coast. So, I propose to you that you might want to consider doing your own organic gardening right in your own back yard. In some cases, the quantity of materials for making compost in the amounts desired (an annual layer 2 inches deep across the garden) cannot be obtained.

  19. Aside from Microsoft and Nintendo, another top competitor, Sony, will also be releasing some top-rated games for its
    own console - the Playstation. Even recommended system specs had difficulties coping with the games demands on first launch when flying over the more substantial town locations.
    After February 27, The Sim Online servers were shut down and it is now
    known as EA land, old account holders can still come back of course, and its the same game.
    Still, within each of these types of simulation games,
    certain games tend to rise to the top. Usually, would
    need to follow the entire startup sequence to start any of the airplanes, but FSP also has the
    auto start feature, to make it easier for newbie’s.

  21. Your pouches will degrade after time, so you will have to repair
    them every once in a while in the abyss. It also happens sometimes that your
    character will say something silly. One particular of the primary regions within the mining market in Australia which has observed the fantastic boost in the employment of ladies is dump
    trucking.
