Gilded bou­quet

First For Women - - Feel- Good File -

“To fos­ter cheer dur­ing the hol­i­days and through the new year, I love adding fes­tive flo­ral bunches around the house,” says Lau­ren Blum,

FIRST editorial as­sis­tant. “To save money on pricey flow­ers, I cre­ate a gilded bunch of from-the-yard ex­tras adorned with a sin­gle su­per­mar­ket bloom! To make, I sim­ply coat a 5" vase with gold spray paint from the crafts store, let it dry and fill it with wa­ter. Then I snip ev­er­greens and berry branches from my yard and one rose to 8" and add them to the vase. Next, I hot-glue this­tles, dried citrus slices and a bauble to skew­ers and tuck them in the vase. It’s a stun­ning sea­sonal pick-me-up!”
