Paper Flower Topiary

Paper Flower Topiary!Buy Your Candlesticks @ Mindy Mae's Market
By Morena's Corner

First I painted a 3 inch candlestick with crackle paint to give it an aged look.

Then I cut out my flowers using a shape from silhouette.  Making the flowers was the most time consuming part of the process!  You could also use premade flowers to speed things up.

I misted the paper lightly with water so I could use the toothpick to curl the petals.

This was just the beginning!  I made approximately 60 flowers.

When I was done I glued the styrofoam ball onto the candlestick,

then I began to glue the flowers onto the ball.

I think these would make darling centerpieces, too! Or, an everyday shelf item!


  1. That is a great idea! I was wondering what I was going to do with the candlestick holders.

  2. I love that! LOVE those flowers! Wish I had them to plop on a wreath for my front door. lol Great job!
