First of all, I'm back! My computer seems to be fixed and I have downloaded all of my pictures back to it! Yippee! Thanks to Ian for retrieving my photos and burning them on a disk and thanks to Mike who stay up all night (literally) to download all my software and whatever other computer stuff it needed.

So here's a little project that I did that took 5 minutes! Lots of folks are incorporating moss topiaries or moss balls into their decor. I am still trying to accessorize the foyer table that I painted. I had put the items together quickly (with the help of my neighbor) and now I am trying to fine tune it!

For the project, you just need a styrofoam ball (green is best) and a bag of moss. I chose to hot glue it on but you could also use spray on adhesive.

It is a messy project, so be sure to put newspaper or something down on your work area.

Here is the final result....

I put it on a container I bought at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for a few dollars. It is a beautiful piece with birds and vines! PERFECT! Just don't get too close....there are a few bald spots! Maybe a little lopsided too! Typically me!

Now all the table needs a different lamp and artwork. Back to the thrift stores!


  1. It looks great! I love those moss balls!

  2. HA! When I saw the title of your post, I thought "What in the world is she talking about?"

    I love it!

  3. Cute post! I love that green moss... but I hate to clean up after it..hehe~

  4. Hi there! Me again! Thank you for your sweet comment. You have your things perfect order my first! I always have a struggle to keep mine in balance and trying to do that in the summer is not always so easy. Hang in there~


I love to hear what you think...
