Reinventing Potential Garage Sale Items

I had this topiary for about 12 years and got tired of it after about 7 years. I put it in the basement recently for a garage sale. Then one day I was going over garage sale items and decided to give it another try. So I took it to my studio and started working on it.

I also had this sugar bowl slated for the sale also. I glued the lid to the bottom for the pedestal.

I took a foam ball and some ivy that I bought at a local craft store and got to the gluing!

This is what they looked like on the counter. Make note of the pitcher on the right.

I then decided to use my artist gresso to paint the pedestals a different color. I am so glad I decided to keep the topiaries.

I spray painted the pitcher a semi white gloss.

Simple and beautiful.
