Sisal happiness

Topiary is a kind of trees of happiness, made from a variety of materials. They bring good luck to their owners and give them a charge of positive emotions. At one glance at this unusual miniature tree, the mood rises. In addition, topiary can be an original decoration of any interior. Topiary made by yourself will be an excellent gift to your friends and family. We will make a topiary made of natural material - sisal. For work we will need: sisal of two colors, plastic ball, acrylic paint in tone with sisal, sushi sticks, twine, pot, gypsum and glue.

So, First, take a sisal and make balls of it, the size we need. The principle of action here is the same as when rolling balls from plasticine - we separate a small piece of sisal and roll a rather dense ball in the palms. We make balls of two colors. I got 52 balls, but you can have more or lessdepending on their size.

When all the balls are ready, let's take care of the trunk of our tree. In principle, any suitable stick can be used for the base of the stem, having previously cleaned it. I had sushi sticks and I used them. So, take three sticks, put them together and wrap tightly with string, sometimes glueing them with glue.

Now let's take a plastic ball and make a hole in it with scissors, slightly smaller than diameter of the resulting trunk. Paint the ball with acrylic paint. When the paint is dry, take the trunk of our topiary and insert it into the ball until it stops. We start to stick the balls of sisal to our plastic ball. You can glue as you please, both in a chaotic and symmetrical order.

Glue all the balls from sisal. After this, the main part of our tree is completely ready.

Now it only remains to secure our topiary inpotted To do this, we plant a building gypsum directly in the pot, according to the instructions and "plant" our tree there. We are waiting for the “soil” to harden.

So, the gypsum is frozen. Now you need to hide it. To do this, apply a small amount of glue to the frozen gypsum, take a little sisal and reel it from the bottom of the trunk so that you can not see the gypsum. If the sisal will stick around in all directions, you can gently trim it around the edges with scissors.

At the end, carefully wipe the pot, cleaning it from plaster. We put our “Sisal happiness” on the shelf and admire the work done.
