Easter Decorations - Pastel Flower Topiary Tree


Here is the start of my Easter decorations. I made some streamer flowers (click HERE for the tutorial)
 which I made custom pastel/Easter colored flowers by inking the streamers. I attached each flower on to a toothpick, then I inserted the flowers here and there on a moss covered styrofoam ball. I custom colored the lace on the dowel by inking cream colored lace with the same blue that used to make my streamer flowers blue. Here is a close up picture....


I made smaller flowers out of brown paper tissue. This was tissue that a $ store used to wrap some breakables I bought. I cut strips about an inch wide and 12 inches long and used the same technique to make them as the streamer flowers. They turned out really good. Now I am off to make a second one.

Thanks for looking!
