looks great. i think the flower ball on top should be bigger than the pot. love the look. only thing i can suggest if you want it to look fuller is maybe deconstruct the flowers from the stems and use a styrofoam ball in the middle and stick the hydrangeas in it & stems out the bottom to keep the topiary vibe 🙂

I am also resisting purchasing the styrofoam balls, I was thinking of using foam kids play balls.  I’ve seen them at the dollar store before and I know Wal-Mart has them.  I just can’t remember for how much?  Other than that I was thinking of using paper mache or some other item I can create.  Good luck!

You can make your own balls out of newspaper and duct tape. Just wad up the newspapaer to the size you want, and duct tape it.

It looks good to me.  Maybe add some ribbon or something under the ball, or to the pot?

For future bees that will be making small flower balls….consider purchasing Easter eggs in the shape of balls…cheap cheap cheap – in comparison to styrofoam balls.  Also…if you need larger balls – super easy to make using paper lanterns – AND you can always add lights inside…very pretty!!!!
