Although the weather has been lovely as of late, it's not quite time to plant the garden or get the hanging baskets ready. I feel at least two more frosty nights coming. So, I figured I might as well flower up the inside of the house with some pretty felt flowers. I used some really nice felt and some rolled flower dies that I purchased from My Favorite Things. I used a printable magnet sheet to adhere the dies to and ran the felt through the eBosser. It cut beautifully and I didn't have to use the extra shim. The thickness of the magnet sheet was perfect.
For the topiary base, I used a small terra cotta pot painted cream with block of foam on the inside to hold the dowel stem and put some dried moss on top. I painted the foam ball a green color (the white was too bright and showed through). I rolled up the felt flowers and used hot glue to hold them together. I used pearl stick pins to attach them to the foam ball in a random fashion and finished it off with a green ribbon bow.
The pretty topiary compliments my teapot collection nicely!
