Topiaries are very simple to make and inexpensive. They can be quite expensive to purchase, so I made my own:
These topiaries, from Mackenzie-Childs, are priced from $45.00 - $175.00 (click here to view):
To make a topiary,you will need a flower pot, styrofoam or oasis, a dowel, some moss and a boxwood ball:
I paint the flower pots in stripes or checks, some have little ball feet, some don't!

Here is a tiny topiary. I bought the base at Michaels and I painted the pot and tied on a M-C ribbon:
