Hi friends! I know you’re probably thinking, “Girl, where the heck have you been?!” Well, life got busy, projects have slowly been getting ticked off, and now that the weather is finally warming up we’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors. But anyway, I want to get back to posting and sharing with you guys so here I am!
I’ve always loved these circle topiaries, but I have never actually seen them being sold at any garden stores near me. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’d know that I’ve recently given myself the title of “amateur plant lady”. I have a few of these ivy plants, and yesterday it dawned on me that I could make one of these topiaries myself.
I figured I would need a stronger gauge wire and I only had floral wire on hand. Then I thought maybe I could use a wire hanger.
It actually worked out perfectly for what I needed. I straightened out the hook and stretched out the hanger.
Next I smoothed out the corners and made a circle. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but I tried to get it as balanced as I could.
Then I pushed the circle down into the center of the ivy plant and started to wrap each vine gently around the hanger. I chose to wrap all of the longer vines around the hanger except for one, but this is completely up to you. You can leave more hanging down or twist them all up. It’ll also depend on your plant.
Also, for the shorter or stubborn vines I used floral wire very loosely to tie them to the hanger.
But that’s it! It literally took me 5 minutes. I am so happy to finally have one of these little cuties, and let’s be honest, I didn’t stop here. I made 2 others too.
If you decide to make one let me know! Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and don’t forget you can keep up with me on Instagram too. Xx
