A few months back, Grant was in a wedding and I made the centerpieces for the reception.
Click here to read how I did these with just 3 “ingredients” and for less than $20. I also needed to make the arrangement for the sweetheart table. There was NO budget left for this arrangement…
So what’s a frugal, crafty gal to do? Clip flowers from her own yard of course!
Starting with a low vase, I wedged in a piece of Oasis floral foam and wrapped a little bit of ribbon around the vase to hide the foam. I went into my yard and clipped cream colored roses and a few stems of white hydrangea. Clip the stems to the lengths you want and insert them into the wet floral foam.
You can take floral picks (or the cheapy-version = bamboo skewers cut to length) and insert one end into a whole lime and the other into the foam.
There’s no formula, per se, just nestle the limes in where you see gaps between the flowers, but make sure they are evenly spaced. (You all know how I just love to eyeball things… measuring is soooo time consuming.)
I think they turned out pretty well. (oh yes, I had to compulsively add a few sticks too.)
