Use any gift cards you may have or coupons from Target to snag a few branches. I am using four stems here. This vase has a large opening. The trick is to insert a smaller vase inside. You will use less stems/branches.

I use shipping paper and bubble wrap to secure my vase.

Buy your floral stems on sale. I bought these stems for 90% off clearance. Six stems at 60 cents for each piece!

I used the same hack as the other large vase. This smaller vase fits nicely without the need for bubble wrap or brown paper.

  2. Tammy, what wonderful fall arrangements you have shared. They are all beautiful, but I do love that sunflower under the cloche the most. And the texture on the pot…… I am drooling. The darn squirrels stole all of my sunflowers, so I am going to have to buy some to dry.
