Easy Crafting: How to Make Moss Bowl Topiaries

Are you looking for a new centerpiece idea? You have come to the right place! Here at Calloway’s and Cornelius, we have everything you need to create a unique piece with color and texture that will truly spruce up your table.


You will need the following supplies to complete this project:


  1. small to medium sized pottery from Calloway’s or Cornelius or use bowl of your choosing
  2. sheet moss from Calloway’s or Cornelius
  3. old magazines or newspapers
  4. hot glue gun and glue sticks

Pick up some lovely pottery at our store nearest you or re-use pottery in your home that is between plantings. Pottery can be used in so many ways throughout the year!

Next, gather old newspapers or magazines and tear off the pages. Wad the paper up and shape it into a dome shape that fits the size of your pottery or bowl. This will act as the filler and foundation for your moss.
