To make the base for the moss covered heart topiary you need to cut a pocket into the center of your fiber scrubbing pad or furnace filter material so that you can insert the wire frame for the topiary. You can do this with one blade from a pair of scissors, or with a thin polymer clay blade, working it into the center of the scrubbing pad from the base to form a small pocket. Take care not to cut yourself when making the pocket in the material. If you can't make a pocket, glue two sections of scrubbing pad over either side of the wire heart and allow the glue to dry.
