All this punch bowl used to hold was dust!
I love this punch bowl. My Mom no longer wanted it so she gave it to me. It is very heavy and has a huge plate that it sits on that won’t fit anywhere. I love it; I just don’t always have a need for a punch bowl. Know what I mean? AND…the only place it will fit, besides my kitchen or dining room table, is on the top of my ovens. So, for the longest it sat up there, empty, being a dust receptacle. Until ONE DAY I had a brilliant idea!! I’d fill it with some leftover raffia, stuff some Styrofoam in there and jam in some flowers. So, that’s exactly what I did!
Those flowers are from WalMart. I bought a big sheet of Styrofoam from Michael’s and I just cut it into the sizes I needed. For this arrangement, I cut several pieces into various round shapes until I built it up to the size of the bowl. Then I just hot glued the pieces together. Next, came the “jamming of the flowers”. I mean, the meticulous and careful arrangement of the flowers. You know, where I crammed them in there, LOL. When I first made this arrangement I added pumpkins in there (as seen), but I later took them out. It looks better without.
**A little tip…when doing an arrangement like this, use a table top lazy susan. Perfect for spinning the arrangement around to evenly place things! 😀
Tomorrow I’ll show you the spider webs outside my house.
No, they’re not real! ‘Cause that would be way too creepy for me. 😉
