This quick and easy clay pot craft uses a green pom-pom and fake flowers to make a decorative topiary bush. A great kids craft that can also make a cute addition to any Barbie/Bratz home or dollhouse.
Approximate Time: 10 minutes
Make two of these as formal decorations outside a fancy dollhouse castle or as a decorative plant in the corner of a Barbie doll mansion. You can make the "trunk" part as short or as long as you want, so it's easy to customize for whatever the exact scale. The stick can be real wood, wire, a chenille stem, or whatever you want.
As long as everything is glued properly, the item should put up with a fair amount of abuse and still last. If something does end up falling off, though, it's always easy to fix. Pom-poms are also great for sucking up fragrant oils and making them last a little longer, so sprinkle a little on one to help freshen up a room.
