Next you will need floral tape and foam tape.

Using the Floral Tape wrap the 3 dowels together.

Wrap the bottom of the dowel with foam tape.
This will be the end that will stick into the candle holder.
The other end you will stick into the ball.

Place the wooden dowel into the candle holder.


Next push the ball onto the dowels.



Your are now ready to start assembling the Topiary.


You will need 19 paper roses.

As you are adding roses around the ball you will
add tuffs of tulle around each rose to fill in the spaces.

Add a ribbon bow and accent bow with butterflies.
