DIY: St. Patrick's Day Topiary

I've wanted to make a topiary for a really long time I just wasn't sure which holiday to do. After looking for St. Patrick's Day crafts and realizing that I didn't have any, no not 1, decoration for St. Patrick's Day I realized that this would be the perfect holiday.
I went to my local craft store got a Styrofoam ball, a cute bucket, a dowel, cupcake liners, glue gun, and some cute stuff for embellishing. And looked at this tutorial for a little guidance.
Decorating the bucket. It is a St. Patrick's Day garland cut and some gold coins
And here is the final project. I am actually really happy with my first topiary.

What do you think?
