I spotted the prettiest fake sunflowers when I was at Michaels yesterday. And at 50% off, I had to pick up a few. I'd have picked up 20 if I could, but decided not to spend a fortune on fake flowers and settled at 3. Normally I'm not a fake flower fan, but these are particularly pretty, aren't they?
I also picked up some packets of leaves for less than a buck.
Got home, and it hit me. I grabbed some stuff from my craft (DISASTER of a) cabinet - 3 large mason jars, some leftover burlap, jute, and all purpose glue.
I gathered up a few leaves and sort of stacked them together. I placed the jar on top.
