Introduction

These topiaries do well in a moist environment like a bathroom or over a kitchen sink.  To care for them, just spritz with water when they begin to look dry. 

Step 1

Spray Spheres

Protect your work area by unfurling roll of kraft paper out onto a flat, level surface. In order for the moss to stick properly to the foam spheres, you’ll need to coat their surfaces with spray adhesive. For the best coverage, keep the can approximately eight inches from the surface of the sphere while pressing down on the nozzle.

Step 2

Spray Moss and Piece Together

Turn each section of moss upside down and then lightly coat it with spray adhesive. Cover the entire surface of each sphere with moss. Slightly overlap the pieces, covering the sphere in sections.

Step 3

Make a Hollow Channel in Sphere

In order for the moss spheres to hang, you’ll need to create a hollow channel down the center of the foam through which to thread sisal rope. The best way to do this is with a wood dowel. Place the dowel on top of the sphere and then add pressure until it goes all the way through to the bottom.

Once the dowel is all the way through the bottom of the sphere, check its surface to ensure no foam has chipped away. 

Step 4

Tape Rope to Dowel

Each sphere will be hung using sisal rope. For a random grouping, cut the sisal rope into different lengths using a utility knife or scissors. It’s best to keep the differentiation in heights under 10 inches to ensure a balanced look once all spheres are hung.

In order to thread the rope through the center channel, tape the end of the rope to the dowel. This will allow the rope to travel through the channel easily, free of any fraying. Guide the dowel and the rope through the channel until approximately four inches of rope comes through the bottom.

Step 5

Knot Rope and Hang

With the rope threaded all the way through the sphere, knot the bottom. Once all spheres are knotted, attach eye hooks to nearby ceilings or beams, then thread the untied end of each rope through the eye hooks.
