First things first, I put floral foam inside container. It was such a tight fit that I didn't even have to glue it in. But you may need a little hot glue depending on your container.
Next, I added the three sunflowers which are the focus of the arrangement.
The faux berries or tiny crab apple branches came next. I placed these along the back on each side and in the center.
The fall colored eucalyptus branches were placed next to fill in between berry branches and on either side of the sunflowers. I added piece of eucalyptus trailing down along the left front.
The mossy green hydrangea was placed along the edge (back and front) to fill in any empty spots.
I added small bird nest on a stem adjacent to the sunflowers. It gives the arrangement interest, it's kinda quirky, and it makes me happy.
I made a four-looped bow (tying it off with tan pipe cleaner) in a great striped ribbon. I attached the bow to one of the stems I had trimmed of the flowers.
I tucked bow into arrangement on the right side at the front. The eucalyptus on the left and the bow on the right balance each other.
Happy Fall Ya'll
