Easy Fall Floral Arrangement

Seems like this time of year we are all down to just a few things left in our storage tubs and we still need a small arrangement.  I used all the last bits and pieces of floral stuff I had and created this small arrangement.

This is definitely called the dredges.

I really like this small container, it has great detail and the color is perfect for my rooms.

A added a small piece of floral foam and some moss to start with.

I had these shorter pieces of grass that I had left after cutting off the longest parts for another arrangement, so these will make great filler.

Then I just started adding everything.  I added the gold grassy looking stems next, then filled in with the leaves and the feathers.  The last thing was a small pic of berries.  Just keep adding until you have the look you want.  It doesn't have to be really full, some open air space and different heights make it more interesting.

A nice space filler using what I already had and it gives this spot a little color.

Just take everything you have and you will be amazed how it can come together for a really pleasing arrangement.

  8. Very pretty, Marty! I love it! And it sounds like you used up every bit of florals you had. This was a great little project for those leftovers.

  9. I do this all the time Marty, that is why at yardsales I pick up centerpieces and use the stuff that's in it to do mine! Cheap way to get the expensive looking floral picks!
    I love yours and that container too! Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Your arrangement is beautiful, Marty! I have one suggestion: when you add your florl foam, bring it to the TOP of the container or even a little above. That makes it much easier to bring thibgs down over the sides. XO, Pinky

  11. I'm with you! I do this too. But this container is so cute. So perfect for your pretty vignettes.

    I hope you guys all had fun today! I missed being with you! :(
