Easy Floral Arrangement

Hey, hey! It's Friday! Let me end the week with a final idea to turn an onion sack from blah to Tada!. It involves tapping into my inner Martha Stewart because today, we'll be arranging a bouquet of flowers.

This project works best with vases that have a wide opening.
Fill the vase with tepid water and sprinkle in some flower food.

Cut the onion sack about two times the size of the vase's opening.

Cover the mouth of the vase with the onion sack and secure with a rubber band.

Trim the edges and wrap a wide ribbon around it to conceal the rubber band
& the edges of the onion sack.
This provides a clean look.

Trim the stems and remove the leaves of the flowers.
Insert the flowers in the holes of the onion sack.

Arrange the flowers to your liking -- use one kind of flower or a variety!

Add leaves around the arrangement to further cover the onion sack.

Tada! an easy floral arrangement without the use of a floral frog or foam.
Won't this be a perfect gift for Mom on Mother's Day?!

To all you Moms out there -- what would the world be without you?
You bring the Tada! to the everyday!

Happy Mother's Day!
