floral-fiIf we decorate for fall a little earlier this year, will it encourage the weather to cool down sooner? Either way, we’re already looking forward to pumpkin-flavored treats and seasonal decorations in warm fall colors. Kick off your fall crafting with a simple, affordable project: a faux floral centerpiece that can be displayed all season, stored in a safe place, and displayed again next fall.

What You’ll Need:

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Arrange floral stems together and then place finished bouquet in vase. Tip: Since the stems are connected, try weaving the tops as much as possible to make the bouquet look more natural.
  2. Finish filling the vase with 2 bags of river rock pebbles.
  3. Cut a 12″-piece of burlap ribbon and wrap it tightly around the center of the vase. Secure the ribbon to the vase with tape so it does not shift.
  4. Cut a second 12″-piece of burlap ribbon; this will be used to create the bow.
  5. Mark the center of the ribbon (6″) and fold each end towards the center point mark.
  6. Pinch the ribbon’s ends and center point together.
  7. Wrap a piece of tape around the pinched ribbon to create the bow and secure it.
  8. To cover the tape in the center, cut a ½”-piece of burlap ribbon and wrap it around the center of the bow. Secure the ribbon with a small piece of tape, ensuring the tape is not visible behind the ribbon.
  9. Using a paper clip, secure the bow to the original 12″-piece of ribbon attached to the vase.
