Holiday Project: Christmas Topiary

I've had topiaries on the brain lately. Now, with the holidays upon us, I'm dreaming of Christmas topiary designs that are easy to make.

Both of the topiary designs above are a breeze to create, and they look so festive in mass displays. I'm particularly fond of the simplicity of evergreens in the silver goblets. Stunning!

I have been meaning to try my hand at assembling a cinnamon stick topiary like the one above. It looks so simple, yet it has a lovely, classic styling that has year-round appeal.

I love to use my vintage loving cups any chance I get. I may just get them together for a Christmas display in my kitchen, too.

Who says that topiaries are only made of plant material. The photos above feature glass ornaments and a lot of hot glue finesse. Images via Calfinder (left) and Fingerprints on the Fridge (right).

Mini ornaments at the base of a topiary (below) add a festive holiday touch.

Outside, there are limitless possibilities for Christmas topiary decorations, from rustic and nature-inspired designs to humorous and colorful interpretations.

My own topiary creations have no holiday theme, but I do use them in my Christmas decor. In a previous post, I shared my big topiary project (shown below.)

But, I've also made small topiaries (shown below) that move around the house throughout the year. During the holidays they become part of my mantel decor.
