Looking for a fun and beautiful holiday project? Judy M. has one!!
Supplies needed: -Styrofoam comes -Wooden skewers of multiple widths and lengths -tooth picks -hot glue gun -fruit of various sizes -nuts in shells -greens boxwood or holly
Start with the heavy and largest pieces then build up using the previous pieces as a base. Fill as you go with greens. Judy finished each row before she started the next one.
As Judy reached the top she used nuts. She secured them using the hot glue gun.
If you want to be really professional Judy would recommend building a wooden structure with dowels. Beware, they are not stable in the car. Be sure to pack in something steady before transporting!!
Sarah Starrett and Karin Savage entered the Museum of Wisconsin Artists' "Bloomin Holidaze". Their piece was inspired by Lorenz painting that was recently donated to the museum. The design was called "Harvest Reds".

Pink Is Perfect A classic mixed-flower arrangement doesn't have to be difficult -- use your intuition to arrange gorgeous arrangements. Make an impressive flower arrangement on your own. Just start with cohesive color scheme (we chose pinks in every shade). -- Start by arranging the flowers in your hand, placing the larger flowers near the base of the group. -- Pay attention to height and shape by arranging taller lilac stems near the top and back. -- Lightly bind the stems with twine and place in a vase. -- Fill in the gaps with sweet peas or other small blooms. -- Insert a few leaves of greenery near the bottom to form a casual "rim" for the arrangement.

Cato shows us how to do a beautiful arrangement for the holiday!!
E-Z, P-Z And inexpensive too!
This arrangement will last several days. The lilies will open in a couple of days and stay healthy for several more days.
What you need:
1 block of oasis Low bowl or dish with a lip (I use a vegetable serving dish) Peony leaves or ferns 2 bags of pittosporum 1-2 bags of spider mums (total of 5-7 flowers) 1 bag of lilies (2 stems)
Soak oasis for an hour in water and place in dish. Add fern to ends of oasis for additional length. Cut remainder of the ferns in half and place along the sides of the oasis. Cut the pittosporum into clumps and place all over the oasis. Add the spider mums. Place the 2 stems of lilies in the middle of the design. Fill in any gaps with the remainder of the pittosporum.
