Easy DIY Mickey Topiary for Fall

Easy DIY Mickey Topiary for Fall

You know that I love a cute craft and this easy Mickey Topiary totally floats my boat. Welcome the fall season with pretty layers of flowers that come together so easily (just my style)! Plus, I'm pretty excited to share a crafty new tool that is kind of rocking my world right now. This is a sponsored post about Westcott®, all opinions are my own.

I'm pretty smitten with all things Mickey from foods to crafts. This is probably a really great time to tell you that I just started a new blog dedicated to this adorable mouse! I'll fill you in on all the details really soon. I'm excited! But, first! Let's talk about a clever new product made by Wescott that will bring your crafts together perfectly. If you haven't spotted this hot tool yet, I'm happy to introduce you to their new Hot Glue Pen. Finally! A crafty tool that you can easily hold in your hand very much like an actual pen. Mickey Topiary for Autumn. Easy faux flowers with ombre colors bring this together beautifully.

Being able to hold a glue stick like a pen is pretty epic. Get ready to press the trigger for easy glue stick flow. But there are even more features that really pop with the Wescott Hot Glue Pen. Some of my favorites are the non-stick tip that makes cleanup simple. Then, the nozzle changes color when it's hot so you can easily tell when NOT to touch it! Score. Hate to admit that I went and touched mine anyway. Oops. Don't be me.

Mickey Topiary for Fall

To put this fun new Hot Glue Pen to the test, I made this fun Mickey Topiary that's perfect to welcome the fall season with. Want to join the fun? Here's what I used:

Faux Flowers - equal amount of 3 varying colors for an ombré look.

(1) 8" White Styrofoam Ball

(2) 4" White Styrofoam Ball

Dry Foam Brick

Wooden Kebab Skewers

Flower Pot

Glue Gun or Hot Glue Pen

Stick, optional

To create the base of the Mickey topiary, foam balls are totally key. They are perfectly shaped and easy to work with. The Wescott Glue Pen is safe for use on them too, bonus. Using both a glue gun or glue pen, adhere the foam balls together with the help of kabob sticks.

Next, remove your flowers from the stems leaving just the right amount on so that you can glue and stick the base into the foam ball. Glue the flowers onto the bottom and work your way up by layering the flowers horizontally. Mickey Topiary for Autumn. Easy faux flowers with ombre colors bring this together beautifully.

To get the ombré look, I used orange flowers on the bottom, a mixed orange and yellow flower for the middle and yellow flowers for the top.  Mickey Topiary for Autumn. Easy faux flowers with ombre colors bring this together beautifully.

Once your entire Mickey "head" is flowered up, the last thing you need to do is secure it onto your flower pot. For this, I used a few kebab skewers and hot glue to secure the head to the foam brick.

Lastly, glue the foam brick into the pot so that it all stays secure. Voila! Since hot glue dries so quickly, your cute topiary is totally done!

And, gosh. I just adore the way this turned out!

What a super cute craft idea, I loved it when I saw on it on FB. I am in love with that glue pen too, had no idea a glue pen existed!! We have hot glue guns for crafting but now we must get this pen. I am going to try to make this DIY Mickey Topiary because it would make a great addition to our home decor!

Your mouse topiary is so cool! I love the colors for fall. I also love the idea of a hot glue pen - Anything to make it so I don't burn my fingers is a plus in my book!

Awww! Mickey looks so cute all decorated for Fall! I know it's bad to rush these final days of summer but I'm totally in the mood for Autumn. I'm so slow with crafts that if I started this project now it would hopefully be done just on time to go on display with my other Fall decor. ;)
