I hope this arrangement will make you smile, as it does me. It reminds me of those things that make summer great.
I used some leftover silks that I already had....filling the basket with flower oasis and tucking in some moss to cover it and make it look natural. I used some taller stems in the back.....but you could do whatever you wished....and it might depend some on the shape of your basket.
The "Silver Fox" and I live on the top of a hill out in the country, so when we have wind, which is quite often. I find nests that have blown out of the trees. So I have a nice collection of nests. It was fun to tuck this sweet little one into the corner.
On one corner of the basket, the splints were broken out, so I added some moss and a couple flowers "growing out."
This photo is taken looking down from the top.....so you can see the mason jar tucked in the basket with a butterfly glued to a stick inside.
This certainly brings back childhood memories of collecting fuzzy caterpillars in glass jars, that I had poked holes in the lid. Then I graduated to a bug keeper that we bought at the local dime store. I thought that thing was the cat's meow!!!
I hope this inspires you to collect a few of your flower blooms and some natural elements..... put them together in a old container.....and enjoy!!!
