One of the best craft items you can have on hand are topiary forms. I have several and I can't tell you how many times I've used them. One of those occasions was the Fruit shower I posted a couple of years ago. (Yep, that was back when I created the fancy post graphics.) Anyway...
I ran across this balloon topiary on Ready, Set, Create and thought it was cute and colorful and yet another use for topiary forms.
To create this, just use a bag of your favorite color balloons. Or multi like the one above. Or color combinations for occasions like Halloween, Christmas, etc. Hot glue them on and done!
You know what also would be cute? Paint and stripe the stick!
