DIY Spring Topiary Trees

DIY topiary trees with recycled Mason Jars are so easy to make!

Spring Topiary Tree in a painted Mason Jar

Using items I already had around my house, I created adorable topiary trees for my Spring decorating.

The greenery balls can be found here.

The stick came from my yard.

And the Mason jar was painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and distressed with sandpaper.

Using hot glue I glued a piece of styrofoam into the bottom of the jar. 

I put the stick from my yard into the styrofoam and then attached the greenery ball onto the top of the stick with more hot glue.

I added moss to the top of the jar to hide the styrofoam then tied on a raffia bow.

Another version of the topiary tree is the one I created with an old enamel mug and a moss covered styrofoam ball.

The process was the same as the first one but no painting involved.
