Mothers’ Day Topiary

Mothers’ Day Topiary… is cute little idea I saw on Pintrest!  It looks like a gal name Melody McBride originally made it and pinned it up!  It’s darling and edible (well… mostly!)

I thought it’d be fun Mothers’ Day gift for our kids to give Grandma’s so I rounded the stuff up and they put them together!!  After all who doesn’t love a good dum-dum once in a while 🙂


Mothers’ Day Topiary


1 standard pot 4.3″

1 Styrofoam 4″ ball

2 (10.4oz) bag Dum-Dums

3ft ribbon

spray paint, desired color


1. On a news paper or in a box spray paint pot.  It will need 2 coats.  Let dry completely.

Paint pot on newspaper or in a box

2. Place Styrofoam ball into pot, press in tightly.

Press styrofoam ball into pot, press tightly

3. Using the stick end of each dum-dum poke it into the styrofoam until the ball is completely covered.

Press the stick of the sucker into ball until completely covered

4. Tie a knot in the ribbon to hold it in place and then tie ribbon into a bow!


Fun little idea for Mothers’ Day… maybe use it for a center piece!  AND be sure to share those yummy suckers 😉

Thanks to Kate for her crafting help with this little DIY craft project!!
