This month we decided to make Thanksgiving centrepieces together, using pumpkins as vases. We made a few for our own Thanksgiving table, and then a couple of others to give away as gifts to people we were visiting.
For 5 arrangements:
Flowers and Greenery: $49
Pumpkins: 5 x $1 = $5
Florist Foam: $0.50 x 5 = $2.50
TOTAL: $11.30 each
My mother admits that she went a bit overboard at the flower shop when she picked up flowers, but you could do this for under $10 each arrangement using small grocery store bouquets.
At a florist shop, these could go for $20-$30 each, so making them yourself saves you money, but it also gives you a chance to do a fun craft too!
