Sure, a topiary used to mean spending a lot of time pruning, guiding and training your shrubs to look ‘just so.’ But you don’t need to have live plants to make a striking topiary.
Instead, you can try one of these trendy topiary — or topiary-inspired — decorating projects to liven up your home. Some are seasonal; others are great for any time of year. Topiaries can be perfect for a porch, where it’s hard to fill all that vertical space. Or they might add some needed height to a tablescape. And topiaries are perfect centerpieces for parties!
