At Christmas, I found instructions through Pinterest for making a beautiful Christmas decoration using a grapevine cone/tree and burlap. I purchased the grapevine tree at Hobby Lobby, at then covered it with burlap roses in three different colors of burlap. Here’s a pic of the tree on the mantle on the left at Christmas time (ignore the creepy, weird sculpture on top of the wood burning stove, that was one of my husband’s creations from a clay sculpture class in college, still trying to talk him into moving it outside…):
Anyways, I really liked the colors of the burlap together and decided I wanted a similar decoration I could put up year round. So, I found a 21″ tall topiary at Hobby Lobby and decided to create a DIY fabric rose topiary!

Here is the list of supplies, the links all go to Amazon, but if you have a Hobby Lobby or Michaels nearby, you can likely find most of these items there for cheaper. In case you do not have a craft store nearby, I have provided links to the supplies on Amazon.

I purchased my topiary form at Hobby Lobby (here is the link to the topiary online at Hobby Lobby) but you can also find a similar one at Amazon at the link above, here’s a pic:
I created MANY burlap flowers in all three colors (click here for tutorial on creating burlap flowers), and then used the hot glue gun to glue the roses to each of the two balls on the topiary until they were covered. I then found a metal bucket at Hobby Lobby for $3.99, although it ended up being slightly too small, so I need to trim the base of the topiary for it to fit better. But I like how it turned out. Here are some more pics:
