Goodwill Garden Urn to Uttermost Topiary

I bought these two Garden Urns a while back at GW, they sat for a time until I could figure out something amazing to do with them. I painted them with a paint from Sherwin Williams called Creamy, then aged them with Anne Sloane clear & dark wax. Hot glued a styrafoam cone onto base, glued two kinds of Moss to give it some visual interest. I had these two Fleur Di Li finials saved from 2 lamps I bought at GW(goodwill) in case you didn't know I liked to shop there..ALOT!  I painted them same color as Urns, hot glued a bamboo skewer, then stuck it ever so nicely on the top. I see these type of Topiarys on Uttermost. Pretty happy with how they turned out. What do you think? Hopefully I have inspired you to go shopping at your local GW. Have a wonderful Day:) p.s. click on the Uttermost website, they have a Topiary on sale for $547, anyone else but me think that is so crazy
