Fresh flowers are beautiful, but buying them from a flower shop in already-made arrangements can be pricey. Here’s a quick and simple way to make your own arrangement using a cheap bouquet from the grocery store. We used a 4 dollar bouquet and a simple glass vase from the dollar store and created this low arrangement that’s perfect for our Thanksgiving table!
Materials: A small bouquet of fresh flowers, a vase, tape, and scissors.
1. Put water and flower food into your vase, making sure the outside of the vase is dry so the tape will stick.
2. Use tape to create a crisscross pattern on the top of the vase.
3. Cut each flower stem at a diagonal and place each into their own hole in the tape lattice.
Now you have a beautiful low flower arrangement to add to your Thanksgiving centerpiece.

P.S. With the support of the tape and a few more bouquets, you can make an even bigger arrangement! Martha Stewart shows you how with this large bowl and some beautiful dahlias.
