Jellybean Topiary

 Does everyone remember my Halloween topiaries? 

Well... The Crafty Sisters last year made jellybean topiaries!

I simply couldn't resist...so yes...I have been gluing more candy to balls :)


I started with painting the balls pink. I used one 4 inch and two 3 inch....

Then I took A LOT of these....is 5 bags a lot? I could have done it with 4 but I needed more yellow and purple jelly beans :) No worries though....they are only....ONE DOLLAR per bag :)!

I started at the top of the ball and worked in a circle around it...
I glued a dowel in the middle of the ball...they have a hole nice and ready for ya!
I put mine in little buckets I found in the dollar section of walmart. I put green foam in the bucket and that way they stand up really nicely. Put moss on top to hide it...bow around the dowel...and you get....

How cute are those???
It is SO easy to do and you have a cute fun spring/easter craft!

Happy gluing!!!!
