How to Make a Fall Floral Arrangement

I saw this super cute fall floral arrangement at Daisies & Olives flea market in Prairie Grove. I loved everything about it except the price....$85.00!


So I went to Oop's in Tontitown to see what I could find. I wanted something unusual to put the arrangement instead of the standard basket or vase. I found this wooden birdcage for $10.00.


And then bought sticks, flowers, greenery, and moss.


First I put the floral base inside.


Then went outside to fill the cage with 2 bags of moss.


I started putting the tall pieces in first.


Then filled the sides and top of the birdcage with the greenery and flowers.


Here is the finished product:








Inside on the dining room table:






The draping greenery and fun flowers really make this arrangement. I will probably place pumpkins around the base as soon as I can find some for sale.


The total cost was $30.00 which is much better than $85.00! And personally I think my arrangement is MUCH cuter! Have fun making your own fall floral arrangement!
