My Make Shift Idea for Flowers

Hi all! So, I began doing a little fall decorating this weekend. I was super lucky this year and found a huge bag full of fall florals a few months back at a yard sale for just $2.00! It included candle rings, flowers, garland, leaves ~ major SCORE!!! I went to work over the weekend and put together a quick bouquet for our dinner table. The thing that I dislike most about silk flower arrangements is the way that the stems look in the vases. With my summer floral bouquet, my Mom suggested that I fill the bottom of the glass vase with coordinating buttons. It turned out super cute, so for my fall florals, I really wanted something just as creative. What I came up with was using a bunch of scrap lace. Have you seen this one in the AMM shop (only $.69 per yard)?

Well, I took a bunch of this lace and stuffed it in the bottom of the glass vase and really like the way that it turned out. Just gave it kind of a soft look and covered up some of those ugly stems that I was talking about.I then took some sheer dotted trim and wrapped that around the vase into a bow and added the berry candle holder to the bottom.
