Fall is a good time to find natural materials in the garden, parks, road, anywhere really. I just realized that my huge fern went dormant this year earlier than in others. I guess that a reason could have been the awful drought that we had and continue to have this year.
Anyway, when I saw the dried mess it came to me that I could use it in an arrangement either in its natural form or sprayed in gold.
Well, here is the end result. A trip to Walmart for 3 small pumpkins, an old .25 cents yard sale find and a flower and scarecrow that I had in my craft room. Boom, an arrangement was born, smile.
You will need: Total ($6.11)
1 small or med. size basket and oasis to stick the flowers. (.25)
Any dried natural material, ferns, astilbe, leaves, … (0)
A seasonal silk sunflower (.40)
½ yard of green ribbon (.50)
1 small about 12” scarecrow ($1.99)
3 small pumpkins @ .99 cents ea. ($2.97)
Stick the dry material in the basket oasis.
Stick the scarecrow and the sunflower.
Tight a bow on the basket handle.
Place the 3 pumpkins in front. DONE!
