Felt Wreath Topiary for Valentine's Day

I made a cute Valentine's Day topiary this weekend. 

I am not all that creative, but I can follow directions for a cute project!  I saw the idea here at the Idea Room. 

I bought 1/3 yard of pink felt and cut out 3" circles.  I used a coffee mug to make a cardboard template and it worked out really well.

I then folded the circles in half....

And then half again...

And then stuck a pin in the corner to adhere the felt ruffle to a styrofoam ball.  Sorry for the blurry close-ups.

I got this cute pot at the Dollar Store.  I think the topiary will work well for Valentine's Day or even Easter.

David bought a dowel rod and he and Brennan cut it for me.  I painted it quickly and attached it to the styrofoam in the pot and to the topiary ball.

Added a bow, and done.  I thought it turned out really cute.  I had not planned to work on this project, but saw the pot at the Dollar Store and decided to go ahead and do it.  I need to get some moss to cover the styrofoam in the flower pot, but otherwise it's done!

Edited to Add:  I love the Lego Necklace at Kristen's site!  Come on over to Works for Me Wednesday today for a lot of cute projects.

This project turned out so well! I might have to make one for a centerpiece. It would be great for when my husband and I dine at home by candlelight.
