Well, my apple centerpiece was starting to look a little sad, so I decided it was time for a new one. Confession: I like this one WAY better!! It’s so…sunshiny! My inspiration came from this early fall centerpiece. Didn’t turn out exactly the same, but what fun would it be if it had? 🙂
See? You love it too, don’t you! So…want to make one yourself? It was SO easy!!
Here’s what you’ll need…
Let’s get started!
1. Plug in your hot glue gun! If you don’t do this now, you’ll be wasting time later.
2. While you’re waiting for it to heat up, cut your flower stems. They’re loooooong, so you end up throwing away quite a bit. They have these nice little grooves so you can actually just bend them back and forth until they break instead of ruining your scissors. 🙂
|Isn’t this stuff beautiful! A beautiful mess anyway…I love it!|
|A few strands…|
|Tied around the jar. Sorry, no action shots…my hands were full! I feel raffia is best looking when it’s a mess. Not perfect, just natural. See the squiggly one on the left? That’s my favorite. 🙂|
