In the Drummonds’ charming living room, dry-in-place rose topiaries displayed on the mantelpiece echo the floral theme of the sofa fabric. To make the topiaries, Gaye glued fresh rose heads to plastic foam forms. (You can purchase the forms at a florist or crafts store.)
- Insert the base of each form into a container, such as a lined wire basket. Use a glue gun to cover the upper ball and the top of the base with dried green moss.
- Cut the stems from the roses. With the glue gun, attach the rose heads to the lower ball. Glue small pieces of moss over any empty spots.
