Topiary Transformation!

Remember those glittery, tacky, CHEAP topiaries I bought at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago? Well, they have been transformed! They started out as $4 Christmas clearance topiaries...full of glitter and poky bits.
A bit of black spray paint, loads of hot glue, and 1.5 bags of spanish moss...and they're done!
I think I like them (both now are done, although they weren't in these pictures)...but my husband just kind of nodded and smiled when I asked if he liked them. So, what do you think? Honest opinions, please!
I'm trying to decide if they're good enough to go on the fireplace mantel when I redo it, or do they need to be put up on an armoire where they're not quite at eye level.

Your topiary's look amazing. They are definitely good enough to put on your fireplace mantle. Your making me want to run and buy some spanish moss. I hope everything is going ok with your sweet little boy. It's so hard to see your little one's sick!

Oooh I love them. Maybe add a few berries to give them color and then a special place in your home. Great transformation.

I think they are fabulous. Pay no mind to the hubby - I made the moss covered balls Joy of Home and my hubby looked at me like I was insane.

Definitely put them on the mantel.
