A customer saw the picture of bunga dip hand bouquet I made a few months ago for a bride. She requested the bouquet to be made into a topiary arrangement.
Since I’ve never made a topiary from bunga dip before, I thought I should give it a try.
The flower pot has been decorated with decoupage technique. I put small stones inside the pot and pour a mixture of plaster of paris and let it harden. That way it won’t topple easily.
For the topiary part, I assembled each piece of bunga dip and tied it to the tree stalk. It is quite different than making topiary with artificial plastic flowers whereby I can just chuck the flower into the floral foam.
The dried green moss was put on top of the flower pot to cover up the stones and plaster of paris.
Overall it’s a good experience for me to do this type of topiary, combining my skills in making bunga dip and decoupage.
