"Make Your Own"
Wreath Topiary
This wreath topiary is so easy to make. All I did was take a grapevine wreath and scatter some ivy about. I took a vase I already had and filled it with green styrofoam. I then took my trusty glue gun and glued on some Spanish mosh. After that I attached my wreath to the styrofoam. I decided I wanted a little accent piece on the wreath so I added the little "chippy" angel. I love how it looks on my mantel, especially seeing some greenery after these long winter days!

Very cute Susan. Yes, seeing green is so nice after this long winter we are having. I even purchased a "real" ivy plant myself this week at Walmart. . . just because it was green, fresh, growing and gave me hope of green things to come!! LOL
