Add French flare to your living space with these miniature topiaries made from upcycled glass jars. It’s much more cost-effecting and I love the originality of something made.

I thought it would be fun to whip up a little faux greenery for our kitchen in the form of some DIY Topiary Trees. Because goodness knows I can’t keep any real greenery alive indoors! When I imagined this project, one thing I wanted to see if I could do was to make the diy topiary trees just from things I found at the dollar store. Which I totally accomplished! To make DIY Topiary trees, add dry floral foam to the bottom of a clay pot. Cover with faux moss. Then roll out a bit of air-dry clay and wind around a wooden dowel and let dry. Paint both the dowel and the clay ‘vine’ green. Place one end into the floral foam and then add a faux moss ball to the top. DIY topiary trees made entirely from supplies found at the dollar store!
