Re: Can I share the onesie topiary I made my best friend?

Thanks! I'm so glad you girls like itChat Icon My sister made one for my shower when I had Ava and now I like to make them for all my good friends when they have babies.

I don't mind sharing the directions at all!

For this one, I used 40 (I'm an idiot, I originally said 64, there's something wrong with my math abilities these days!) onesies of various sizes, 12 wascloths, 6 pairs of socks, ten bibs and three burp cloths. Then I filled any gaps with some silk flowers I had on hand.

So, besides what's above, you need:

a 6 inch pot
2.5 foot dowel
styrofoam to fit the pot (they sell one that's shaped to fit in the pot)
A styrofoam ball
Small lollipop sticks
A glue gun
Rubber bands
Ribbon of your choosing
Faux moss

First, put the styrofoam in the pot, then run the dowel down the center. Put some hot glue on the top of the dowel, then insert into the styrofoam ball.
Proceed to stick the lollipop sticks all around the ball, inserting with hot glue on the end to keep them in place. Place them about two inches apart, but in random order.
Once that's done, roll up your baby items tight, fold in half and rubber band at the fold nice and tight. Then, slip them around the lollipop sticks, arranging them to fill up the spaces.
I use the biggest pieces of clothing first, then fill smaller spots with the smaller items. I work my way down in size until I'm sticking the socks in here and there to fill in. I usually am able to fill the whole thing with just baby items, but I really didn't need much filler when I was done with this one and happened to have leftover flowers on hand, so I filled spots with that instead. I think I used ten silk flowers in total.
Then I wrapped the dowel with ribbon and I have to put the moss on. It's actually all really easy from start to finish!Chat Icon

Here's a gender neutral one I made my sister. Pardon the leaning on it, I didn't secure it before I took the pic. But just so you can see one without filler. I had entire outfits on this oneChat Icon
