Tall topiaries are really fun to make and take up very little space on your table. Make several for a dinner party or wedding reception, or make just one to add some life to the end table beside your favorite chair. Smoothfoam balls are so versatile for topiaries because not only can you poke in straight pins or floral wire, you can also cover the smooth surface quickly with any acrylic craft paint, then glue your favorite flora around it.

My friend crochets these sweet little flowers which I have been collecting. Usually I use them sparingly, one at a time on various project – but I thought my whole collection might look great together as part of a pretty DIY summer door wreath. Visit my blog for more details.
Nothing is quite so recognizable – and enjoyable – as the Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess. Check out how I nested two Smoothfoam ruled wreath forms together to frame my “one fish, two fish.”
