DIY Spring Ribbon Topiary

I loved this little craft!  So fun to make, and super cute for spring decorations.  Super easy, too, which is always a nice bonus!

Supplies to have on hand

  • Small clay pot or any cute container
  • Floral foam
  • Decorative moss
  • Paint and paintbrush
  • Wooden skewer
  • Styrofoam ball
  • Several yards of various ribbon
  • Straight pins
  • Hot glue gun
Gather your supplies, and allow yourself about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete.  Ready?  Here we go:
First, I hit up Garden Ridge and got 2 little clay pots, floral foam, decorative moss, and styrofoam balls.  I used my own stash of ribbon and paint.  As for the skewers?  These are just little wooden skewers from the kitchen that you use to make kabobs!
Second, I decided on my paint colors – pink and green.  I alternated the top and bottom sections (see below), then I used a pencil eraser and some white paint to add polka dots to the pink part.
Third, after you paint your pots, set those aside to dry completely, then get to work on your ribbon ball.  Gather your various ribbons, and cut about 30-40 pieces of each about 1 1/2″ long to start with.  You might need more for filler later.  Have your straight pins ready to go, too.  Simply roll each piece of ribbon in a loop, then pin inside the loop to attach to the styrofoam ball.  Continue until you can no longer see the styrofoam:
Almost done!  Finally, fire up the hot glue gun and cover the floral foam with decorative moss.  Glue it down so it stays put.  I even threw a little bow on my skewer and stuck it on with hot glue.
Voila!  You’re done!  Now you have an original piece of spring artwork to show off anywhere you like!  You did a GREAT job, you crafty little mama, you!  🙂

  1. LOVE this cute colorful spring-y project! I also love that I have most of these supplies on-hand…finally something to do with all those ribbon scraps. The one item I don’t already have, I can pick up from the Dollar Tree for CHEAP, which is awesome. I plan to do this today with my girls as our DIY Sunday fun project.
