{diy Project} Paper Topiaries Centerpieces


These inexpensive, stylish table centerpieces are a great budget saver.  Super chic and perfect for a wedding, bridal shower, or dinner party.  You can make these whimsical topiaries with basic printing paper or colored paper to match your theme.

Materials Needed:

  • Shredded paper
  • Vases or pots
  • Foam ball
  • Glue
  • Wood dowels or chopsticks


  1. Shred a fair amount of paper in the colors you like, or pick-up some preshedded paper from a craft store.
  2. Drizzle glue on one side of a Styrofoam ball and roll it in a pile of the cuttings, pressing lightly to adhere.
  3. Fill in any bare spots and repeat on the other sides. Cover as many foam balls as you will need for each table.
  4. Let them dry then stick the dowels (or chopsticks) and place and put them in flowerpots or cluster in a large bowl in the center of the table.

This project is so easy to make you can enlist your entire wedding party to help.
