DIY “Be Mine” Topiary

I’m so excited to share this project with you today! I’ve admired cupcake liner projects all over blog land, so I decided to create my own for Valentine’s Day! You might have seen the “Be Mine” topiary in my Valentine’s Day Vignette that I already posted.

Anyone can make this topiary. It was so fun and quite inexpensive to make!

DIY “Be Mine” Topiary

Supplies Needed:

  • Container or pail
  • Stick or dowel
  • 2 Styrofoam balls
  • Batting or newspaper to stuff around the base to secure it
  • Cupcake liners
  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  • Vinyl decal {I made mine with my Silhouette}
  • Burlap to finish off the base

Begin by folding and hot gluing individual cupcake liners to one styrofoam ball until the entire ball is covered. I used 75-80 liners.

For the base, I hot glued the other styrofoam ball into my 0.25 thrift store pail. Then I stuffed batting around it to further stabilize the ball.

Being my fancy shamancy self {not!} I used a stick from my yard and pushed and glued it into the base.  You can’t beat free! :)

Then I attached the cupcake liner covered ball to the other end of the stick and secured it with glue.

I added the “Be Mine” vinyl embellishment that I created using my amazing Silhouette machine!

    Very cute and creative. I think my hubby would be disappointed if i used my muffin liners NOT in my muffin tins, since he’s the one who gets to clean it! BUT if i get extras, I would love to try this!
