Mini Topiary Tree

Capture the look of spring even when the weather is cold. A Mini Topiary Tree from Tiffany Windsor will brighten up your space and transport you to a pretty garden. Tabletop decorating ideas are a great way to quickly change the look of your space.

Mini Topiary Tree


  • Aleene’s Max Tacky Adhesive
  • Glass apothecary jar with lid
  • Small clay pot
  • Foam balls – one to fit snugly inside clay pot and one larger for topiary tree
  • Sheet moss
  • Scissors
  • Wooden skewers (one for applying glue and one cut to approximately 3″ for tree trunk)
  • Small paper flowers
  • Small rhinestones
  • Ribbon and metal embellishment


  1. Apply glue around center of smaller foam ball. Insert into clay pot. Press and rotate to spread glue to secure ball inside pot.
  2. Apply glue to top of foam ball. Press piece of sheet moss into glue.
  3. Use blunt end of skewer to press moss into pot along edges. If needed cut excess pieces with scissors.
  4. Select piece of sheet moss that will cover entire large ball.
  5. Cover 1/2 of larger foam ball with glue. Wrap moss around ball. Press moss firmly with hands. (The sheet moss should be thick enough that none of the glue transfers onto your hands.)
  6. Apply glue to second half of ball and continue to wrap and glue moss onto ball. If needed, add more glue and add additional moss to fill in any empty space. Cut any excess pieces with scissors. Set aside to dry.
  7. Dip pointed end of skewer into glue and apply dot of glue to front center of each flower. Use same skewer to pick up rhinestones and glue into center of each flower. Set aside to dry.
  8. Dip end of cut skewer piece into glue and insert into bottom of topiary ball. Dip other end into glue and insert into clay pot.
  9. Glue flowers onto topiary in random pattern.
  10. Embellish clay pot with ribbon and metal finding.
  11. Line bottom of apothecary jar with a thin layer of sheet moss. Carefully place topiary into jar.

What a cute way to bring spring into your home, even if spring is still a few months away! I think these would look cute as party decorations, too.
