I think you use long straight pin needles in a foam ball, right?

Straight pens should work. I know you can make a wreath the same way, using straight pens. I think thats soooooo cute!

staraigt pins have the little balls on them right? or am i missing something? The balls are all showing, but I got the hang of making the topiary if I can get the pins not to show.

The pin tops will show through because of the loop. But here's an idea I have used in the past when I was making ribbon covered pinecones for christmas decorations. I would cover the pin tops with glittery fabric paint. Just a drop so it would look like a sequin. Not only does it cover the pin top, but gives an extra sparkle as well as giving an extra support in staying power. Like it was meant to be there. hth.

I made a topiary once using just dum dums. It would be really cute to use the dum dums and ribbon for a kids party.

That was from awhile ago, I did make one and it turned out sooo cute! But it uses a lot of ribbon!
