Now, if you still want to know how to make one of these, let's get to it!
-wooden candlestick (or whatever you choose to use for a base)
-hot glue gun
I've had this wooden candlestick in my craft closet for a while now. I picked it up on one of my Goodwill trips. It's a short, squatty candlestick. I painted it white after I brought it home, but never used it for anything-
To secure the styrofoam ball to the candlestick, I put some hot glue on one end of a dowel and stuck it into the ball. I ran a bead of hot glue around the rim of the candlestick, put another big dab of hot glue on the inside bottom and stuck the other end of the dowel in the big dab of glue. I pressed down for a few seconds and it was good and secure.
This is when the poor little guy was made fun of! He does look like some kind of muppet at this point! My 9 year old thought I was making a wig!
Just hot glue the moss all over until the ball is completely covered.
Give your "wig" a good haircut to shape it up when you're done.
I wanted a nice neutral color scheme, so I picked different shades of white vintage buttons from my button stash and hot glued them on randomly. I add a jute bow to almost everything - can't help it!
Simple and pretty!
