Here’s another super quick and inexpensive idea for party decor! I was inspired by these topiaries, found at Simply Designing, but, I wanted something a little smaller.
To make my version of star topiaries, you”ll need:
red, white, and blue construction paper or cardstock
star punch (Hobby Lobby)
styrofoam balls (mine were 4 inches from Jo Ann’s)
paper basket filler (Dollar Store)
glue gun/hot glue
a tin or other item to hold your topiaries (found at Target Dollar Spot)
The first thing I did was take two sheets of each color, cut them into long strips, and punched a ton of little red, white, and blue stars!
To assemble each star ball, I poked the wooden skewer into place and secured it with a dab of hot glue, I then began to poke a straight pin through the center of each star and into the foam ball. I think each ball took about 5 minutes to completely cover.
Once each ball was covered in little paper stars, I was ready to assemble the entire topiary.
I cut a foam ball in half and pushed it into the bottom of my decorative tin.
Then, all I had to do was insert each skewered, star ball into the bottom foam and cover it with paper basket filler to finish the look.
I chose to use this as a centerpiece on the favor table at the party!
I actually still have these on the center of this table now. They make a perfect centerpiece for the summer!
