Fall Flower Arrangement

This is my first attempt at creating a fall flower arrangement. I love the designer arragements that you see in all the floral shops but of course they're WAY out of my price range. However, that did not stop me from trying to make my own.

I picked up some pieces from all my favorite haunts; Hobby Lobby, Family Dollar and Garden Ridge. I also included some dried hydrangeas from my garden. My inital budget was $20, but the actual cost was around $30...that container was larger than I thought.

Seeing the beautiful initial wreaths in blogland (I apologize, I don't have the specific links), I thought it would be cool to hang a big ole' W in front of my container. I kind of like how it fills in the void....plus it hides where paint is chipping off.



Okay, please excuse the green satin ribbon...that's all I had at the moment. I've since replaced it with brown ribbon.

So what do you think? Thanks for stopping!
Sincerely, Lisa

  12. It is beautiful. I recently purchased hydrangeas and have no idea how to put them to use. I think I will eventually figure it out and hopefully it will be a success like this.
