Pottery Barn Inspired Black Glitter Topiary

How cute would Pottery Barn’s Black Glitter Topiaries be with my spooky Halloween décor?

PB Black Glitter TopiaryPottery Barn

What do I need to make these topiaries?  Here’s the list:  black spray paint –  check, two thrift store topiaries – check, two terra-cotta pots – check, glitter spray paint – off to Hobby Lobby and don’t forget the 40% off coupon.

As you can see I had almost everything needed to make these topiaries on hand.  The thrift store topiaries were in little brass containers not suited for this project so I saved them for use later.


The terra-cotta pots came from my stash.  I ran a bead of hot glue around the styrofoam bottom of the topiaries and secured them in the terra-cotta pots.


A bit of trimming was necessary near the bottom which had ivy coming up the trunk of the topiaries.  Now I was ready to paint.


The black spray paint isn’t pictured but it is from Wal-Mart and is only 99 cents.  They always have the 99 cent spray paint in basic colors.  I sprayed them completely in black, then I used the glitter blast on the leaves.

Spooky Topiary

The glitter doesn’t show up as much as I had hoped.  I think they are even more spooky than the PB version because they are ivy and a bit unkempt looking.

Here they are on the Halloween mantel, but I’m not sure if they are going to stay hereI love how they look with the books and pumpkins.

These could move to the foyer before Halloween.  What do you think?
