Miniature topiaries like this moss covered heart, can be easily made from wire shapes and painted paper (for ivy topiaries) or from hearts covered with reindeer moss, railroad scatter or grass, or colored flocking. The topiaries shown in these instructions take very little time or materials to make, and can be set into the printable miniature Versailles boxes, to make simple plants for a dolls house or model scene, a model horse jump decoration, or as shower or wedding favors.

Instead of hearts, the same method can be used to make a range of specialized topiary shapes. Experiment and see which shapes you like to work with best.
