Super-Easy*Super-Quick*Super-Cheap

Hey everyone!  Are you intrigued yet?  Well, it's really not that big of a deal, ya'll.  It's just been awhile since I did some kind of "how-to," and this little project was something I needed to do for my Fall decor.  I wanted to change out a couple of summer floral arrangements, & create 1 or 2 that would be more in keeping with my Fall decorations.

This is the first one I want to change.  This is on the coffee table in my sitting room.

This one was in our bedroom, & I would like to change it if I have enough materials left after I change out the one for my sitting room.

Glad I was able to find this box of florals, because I really didn't want to purchase more.  What I like to do first is group like things together.  These florals are all at least a couple of years old, & I know I got them on sale.....LOL!

I carefully removed the old floral stems, & fortunately, all the foam and moss stayed in place.  This is part of the "Super-Easy" part & it was out of necessity, because my glue gun is still packed away!  I know, shameful.....LOL!  Anyway, I just started poking the stems into the pot, fluffing, bending & twisting as I went along.  This arrangement will be viewed from all sides, so it needed to look good all the way around.

TA-DA!  I was pretty pleased with how this turned out.  Sometimes I prefer a more stylized arrangement & total symmetry, but most often I opt for a more natural look, like this.

.........and I had plenty of leftovers for redoing this pot, too.  It's going to look great in our bedroom!

I'm only giving you a sneak peak of how this looks on the table in my sitting room.  Ya see, I've got a "room tour" up-my-sleeve.   Can't wait to share!
As always, thank ya so much for stopping by.  The "Welcome" mat is always out, 
so ya'll come back soon!

Very nice! I don't use hot glue either. Too much trouble when you want to change things out. You arrangements are both so pretty. I especially like the one in the square vase. I love those colors and flowers! Looking forward to seeing your tour also!

Love your arrangements, love them! The one I love the most is the one that looks more Tuscan. You are on a roll! Happy decorating! XO ~Liz

I really like the arrangements! You did an awesome job! I'm still not in the fall decorating mood. It's just too hot.
