I had this styrofoam form left over from when I made a strawberry topiary a few years ago.
I’ll have to admit that the idea of making this burlap topiary is not an original one. I had actually seen one on the blog Dining, Designing, and Diapers a few months ago. Taryn has some great instructions on how to make larger versions of this topiary. The first step is to cut lots of squares that measure 4 inches x 4 inches out of your burlap. I can’t tell exactly how many I used because I would cut a whole stack of them and then when I ran out, I would cut some more.
I followed Taryn’s instructions on how to fold each square to form a “bubble” out of the fabric. Then I attached them to the styrofoam with a straight pin. You won’t see any of the straight pins if you fit each “bubble” snuggly.
