I love to take ORDINARY objects,
like mason jars, bottles and soup cans...
and turn them into something EXTRA-ordinary,
like these beautiful Coastal Fall Flower Arrangements...
This is ALMOST a $10 DIY...The flowers cost $12 at my local grocery store.
I found a pretty assortment of Pom Daisies, Alstroemeria, and Roses in pretty fall colors like rust, orange and gold.
Then I dug out some recycled jars, bottles and cans- these cost me nothing- I am always saving strange containers- like this Ragu spagetti sauce jar and this adorable apple juice bottle. Next, I decided to add a few "coastal accents", like burlap, twine, starfish and sand dollars...
This also cost me little to nothing, since I just used some scraps of ribbon and twine and things I had leftover from other projects! I even made a small tag that reads "give thanks".
Then I just filled them with an assortment of mixed flowers...
Each "vase" has it's very own personality- I love the little apple juice bottle tied with a tag that reads "give thanks".
and this one with burlap and a starfish filled with rust color roses and filler (rust colored roses are my FAVORITE fall flower),
and this upcycled soup can features a sand dollar filled with garnet daiseys.
It's amazing how great a Ragu Spagetti Sauce jar can look with a little creativity!!!
What a beautiful (and thrifty) centerpiece idea for your next fall dinner...maybe even Thanksgiving Dinner. For a gracious touch- let each guest take one home after the meal!
