Ok, he didn't really hate it; he is just less than excited that paper covers over half our house! But this is a topiary...
In making this I found out that Styrofoam balls are surprisingly expensive! So I used a paper mache ball and painted it white. My husband was kind enough to drill a hole in the bottom for the "stem". (see, he doesn't completely hate it) Then I covered it in about a million little punched flowers out of my favorite, but discontinued, Close To My Heart Sweetheart paper.
I like it! Now I have a whopping TWO valentine decorations!
I am also entering this in Heart 2 Heart's challange for the week: make a 3D item; so wish me luck!
