Holy Guacamole! It’s An Avocado Topiary!

Mexican Fiesta Decor is all the rage and can be found all over craft and home decor stores. Party decorations are especially popular. Let me show you how I made an Avocado Topiary with a fun Holy Guacamole Cricut graphic.

My daughter is obsessed with Chipotle. So much so that they are catering her College Graduation party at the end of the month. I have always loved party planning and have been having fun making decorations and planning all the details. When I was shopping at the craft store I saw this adorable Holy Guacamole Iron On Transfer from Cricut.

At first I planned on making a pillow to place in the patio area, but as we are serving Guacamole at the party, I thought it would be cool to have a large avocado topiary to use as a centerpiece on the food table. It will definitely be a statement piece! Let me show you how simple it was to make this Avocado Topiary.

How To Make An Avocado Topiary

Supplies

Scrap Fabric To Fit Iron On
Holy Guacamole Iron On Vinyl
15″ High Galvanized Vase
Forest Moss Preserved 8oz
FloraCraft Styrofoam Cone 3.9 Inch x 14.9 Inch White
FloraCraft 300 Piece Floral Pins, 1.75″
12 Avocados

These pre-made Cricut Iron-On Designs make it so easy! First iron the fabric so it is warm, then place the iron on transfer on the fabric of your choice. I used muslin. It is best to hold the iron firmly in place rather than move it around. Ensure the image is adhered in all areas. You can slowly lift up the edges of the transfer and if it is not fully adhered, go over it with the iron-on again.

The bright colors show up perfectly on this light muslin fabric. This little guy just makes me smile!

I used spray adhesive to attach it to the tin bucket, as it is removable. I may end up adding it to a pillow for my daughter after the party as I doubt I will need an Avocado Topiary again anytime soon! The adhesive works great.

To secure the foam form into the bucket, I first filled it with newspaper and then added smaller pieces of foam to fit it snugly in the base. Next, use the floral pins to attach the avocados to the form. You may need to add two or three pins to each one.

Fill in the spaces with moss and moss stones that I found at the Dollar Store. I used the floral pins to attach these as well.

I used twelve avocados to go around all the sides. At a dollar a piece, it was cheaper to use the moss stones to make it full.

It’s definitely a tongue in cheek decoration, but I know it will bring a lot of laughs when guests go up to get their meal!

So fun...and so punny!!!

I LOVE a great pun!!! I love to use them for my mother at Halloween time, as in last year she was a “Pig in a Blanket”, ears-nose-curly tail & yes a blanket! She was truly a hit at her amazing assisted living center last year, and I have to maintain her punny status for this year for sure!

I have a quick question about the “Holy Guacamole” iron-on...because of course she is going to be just that...“Holy Guacamole”...halo on a sombrero, avocado socks and all!!! Does the iron-on need light or dark colors to be adhered to do it can be seen, or will it show up on any color? I found two darling aprons that I am considering using rather than a T-shirt, that way she will have a festive apron when she needs one, rather than a T-shirt that I don’t think will be worn again.

The aprons are The Pioneer Woman’s brand, and one has a red bib, and the other has an aqua bib, and I just wondered which would showcase the iron-on better, or do I just need white or natural? I am rooting for the aqua one as it has bright-green trim that will match the avocado socks that I have found, but I want to be sure that this cute little guacamole guy shows up on whatever I choose!

Thanks for sharing your talents!!!
