I love decorating for Fall! My dining room is the center of my home so I love to have it set up and styled as it’s a high traffic area. Keeping fresh flower arrangements can be pricey and a lot of maintenance so I wanted to create something I could display out and not have to worry about. I headed to my local Michael’s craft store for all the essentials. The key to making these arrangements on the less expensive side is to buy everything when it’s on sale. I lucked out having all Michael’s fall items being 50% off. I never buy floral at full price. You can usually always find they have 40% off sales or if I really like a floral that never goes on sale, I’ll buy them over a few weeks with a 40% off coupon. I wanted the colors to be subtle and to have a little romantic feel using burgundy, white, blush pink and creams. You can use any colors or floral you want for this project!
WHAT YOU NEED: Vase, Floral Foam, Wrapping, Scissors, 5 Fake Floral pieces
STEP ONE: I placed the foam wrapping that the vase was bagged in on the bottom of the vase and placed the floral foam right on top. You can buy big pieces of floral foam, but those are more expensive so this does just the trick!
STEP TWO: Start cutting stems off each of the arrangements. Because I made two arrangements, I made sure to split each of the flowers evenly between vases.
I cut them probably around 5 inches down from the actual flower so I could be able to stick them into the floral foam.
STEP THREE: Start arranging them into the vase. I spread them all around making sure you couldn’t see any of the floral foam underneath.
Keep playing around with the centerpiece until you feel its full enough and you don’t see any openings. Buying floral that as pumpkins mixed in really adds the fall feel to these.
And Viola! That’s all there is to it! I love the two pieces that I made and they will be perfect for my table all Fall! Give it a try, I know you’ll love the outcome!
I hope you guys enjoyed this little how to tutorial! Good luck making your faux fall floral centerpiece!
