Yesterday I made a floral arrangement using lilacs from my tree. I started the tree a number of years ago from shoots from a tree at my family farm. This is the first year it bloomed.
The interior container that the lilacs are in is a plastic peanut jar. The other flowers are two bushes I got at the dollar store for a different project and didn’t use. You can usually find glass beads or other filler items at the dollar store.
You can make an arrangement like this for about $5 or so, using items you may already have or shopping at dollar store or discount stores.
