DIY Wednesday {Mod Podge Topiary}

Hey friends! I'm back with another DIY Wednesday.  This project is a really simple one involving just a few supplies that some of you may already have on hand!

I am calling them Mod Podge Topiaries, even though there is no foliage involved, I just don't know what else to call them.

Here's what you need:

 sheet music (the older & more worn the better), scissors, mod podge, paint brush & a few topiary cones

Once you have all your supplies, tear out a few pages of music and cut into strips as shown in the middle picture.  One at a time, wrap strips around cone while generously lathering the mod podge on top.  This takes having both hands free for wrapping & brushing the mod podge on, thus the lack of pictures for this step-- I'm  not THAT great at multi-tasking ;).  Continue wrapping & mod podging to the very top of the cone.  Fold the top pieces down on top of the cone's "peak" & cover generously with good ol' mod podge. Let dry.

And here's your finished product! We mounted ours on top of candle holders.  Easy as pie.
