With Halloween officially less than a week away, that means Thanksgiving and cornucopias are right around the corner. I decided I should spruce up my apartment with a little autumnal decorating that can be left out the whole season rather than setting out corn husks so early in the year.
I thought to myself “I could easily throw together a fake flower arrangement in this little bugger.” So I picked up one of those green “wet foam” cubes and decided to stick some stuff in it!
Here is what I picked out!
Oranges, yellows, reds and a little purple looked seasonal without giving the feel of a specific holiday. I started with the biggest flowers first and then just started filling stuff in around it until the basket filled up!
But it turns out that I had purchased way too many flowers for just this one basket.
There was already a wooden vase in my house with reddish-orange mums in which I planned to add a little additional flair…
Well, with such an easy project, all you need to do is look around for anything that will hold water and it should suffice. Low and behold, I had a cute orange pitcher just chillin on a shelf that looked like it could use something fancy shoved in it!
I scooped up everything that remained and plopped it right in. Couldn’t have been easier.
There you have it! Three different floral arrangements that can sit out for a few months (and will probably just be moved around with different colors in the seasons to come) for around $20.
