BLOOM: Fresh Flowers and a Giveaway

1-Floral Post

Over the years, I used countless flowers in my posts here at homework. I’ve created all types of faux flowers and used fresh flowers either as the star of a post or as part of the styling for a post. These are just a few of the times, I included flowers in my photos.

Etcetera: fall leaf centerpiece

If you’re ready to give up summer and start putting out fall d├ęcor, this centerpiece will definitely make an autumn statement.

To make this centerpiece, you’ll need:

Fall leaves (natural or silk)
Oasis
Pot or planter
Optional: floral picks, twine to embellish your pot, glue gun, tacky glue

For my centerpiece, I wrapped the terra cotta pot that I used in sisal twine. Starting at the top, I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue and wrapped the twine around and around until I reached the bottom. I don’t have any pictures of this part of the process because my hands were covered in glue!

  1. My leaves didn’t come with stems or picks so I hot glued them to pieces of wire. I used about 5 leaves per wire and sort of fanned them out.
  2. Start sticking the wires into the oasis going around in a circle until the pot is completely filled.
  3. You need a lot of leaves to get an abundant, full effect. 
  4. Once you’ve filled your pot with leaves, you can fluff them or rearrange them until you’re satisfied.
All done and...
time for a nap!
