You will want to begin by painting the ball yellow. I chose a yellow that was a close match to the lemon drops, but you could use whatever yellow you have on hand since you won’t see it very much once you add the lemon drops.

You will want to paint the foam ball until it is completely covered. Then let the paint dry.

Once the paint is dry, it’s time to start gluing on the lemon drops. You will want to use a low-temperature glue gun for this part so you don’t melt the foam or burn your fingers. Glue the lemon drops as close together as you can.

When the entire ball is covered with lemon drops, find a small space at the base to insert your dowel into the foam ball. You may want to secure the dowel with a little bit of glue. You will also want to remove any strings that could be on your topiary top before you place the topiary into your container.

Glue the foam cube inside your container and insert the topiary into the cube.  Fill the base with basket filler and you’re all done!

Now I feel almost like I have my own little lemon tree in my house. Isn’t this topiary so bright and fun?
