Dum Dums Spring Topiary

What you need

Assorted Dum Dums in pastel colors
Pastel ribbon
Floral foam
Decorative pail or pot
3" Styrofoam ball
Moss
Wooden dowel
White paint
Foam brush




Instructions

1.       If you can’t find a white dowel, start by painting an unfinished dowel with white acrylic craft paint. Set the dowel aside to dry.

2.       Take a Styrofoam ball and insert pastel colored Dum Dums until the ball is completely covered. If you find that the lollipop sticks start to run into each other inside the foam, simply trim the sticks with scissors.

3.       Place a piece of floral foam inside your pail or pot. We chose a pretty blue metal pail to go with our Easter theme.

4.       Insert one end of your dowel into the Dum Dums-covered Styrofoam ball and the other into the floral foam inside the pail.

5.       Finish off your centerpiece with a ribbon tied around the dowel and some decorative moss to cover the floral foam.

That’s it! In just five easy steps, you’ve created an elegant topiary Easter decoration.
