This cute pom pom topiary is an easy-to-make gift for Mom for Mother’s Day or even her Birthday!
There are just a few supplies needed for this craft — a small flower pot or container, pom poms, floral styrofoam and glue. Get the complete list below.
I recommend an adult do the cutting for the Styrofoam and assist with the gluing.
For the container, I used a little tin bucket I found at the dollar store but any small container will do. Other container options include a small flower pot, a mug, a decorated tin can or even a painted jar.
I found all of my supplies at Walmart and the Dollar Store except for the pom poms, you can get the link to those in the supply list below.
Supplies You’ll Need:
- Pom poms (I used all 1-inch size)
- A floral foam ball (mine is 3.8-inches in diameter)
- A floral foam block (for the container)
- A small container or flower pot
- 4 paper straws or a stick
- Floral moss
- Low heat glue gun and glue sticks
- Tweezers (to place pom poms if using low heat hot glue)
- A knife to cut foam block
- Ribbon or other embellishments to decorate
How to Make a Pom Pom Topiary
If you’re painting or decorating a container, do that first, then assemble the topiary with straws or a stick through the ball and base foam as follows…
Cut down a piece of floral foam to a size that will fit snuggly inside your container. I used a kitchen knife for this, nothing fancy. An adult should do the cutting!
Next make a starter hole in the floral foam then push the four paper straws or stick into the foam ball and base.
Now glue the pom poms onto the foam ball one by one. Use tweezers to place each pom pom onto the foam ball and use a low heat hot glue gun to avoid getting burned! I recommend an adult help with the gluing.
To finish, add a little floral moss to the container.
