Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut the stems from the large floral mixed bush and begin inserting them into the top of the 18 inch bale, creating a cascading arrangement across the top and down one side as shown. For a more permanent arrangement, add low?temp glue to the stem before inserting into bale. Embellish the bale even further by attaching ribbon streamers using floral pins. Attach leaves and berry stems throughout the arrangement, using low?temp glue to secure.
  • 2
    Insert silk stems into the bale across the top and down the front corner of the maxi bale as shown.
  • 3
    Embellish in the same way using ribbons, leaves and berries.
  • 4
    Create another bale decoration using the maxi bales. Decorate them in coordinating fall flowers, ribbons and leaves using low?temp glue to secure. Extra bales are the perfect accent. Try tying simple ribbon around a bale or stack a few together.

    Tip: FloraCraft straw is reusable – at the end of the season, remove the decorations and mulch them into your garden or flower beds for healthier soil in the spring.
