For our Christmas party last year, I bought several Christmasy flower arrangements, carefully arranged them in vases, and placed them around the house. Classy, perhaps, but completely unimaginative. I’m pretty sure no one even noticed them. Not exactly money well spent.
So this year I decided to get a little more creative (and thrifty) with my flower arrangement, with the idea to create something similar to this:

I grabbed Husband’s hot glue gun, an empty can, & a box of candy canes & started gluing.
The wrappers hung down over the bottom, so I glued those down and then cut a circle of scrapbook paper & glued that over the wrappers.
I found a matching piece of scrap ribbon to tie around the candy canes & glued it in place.
I then found a bunch of artificial pointsettias in a box of unused Christmas decorations & used a wire cutter to cut them down to size.
I glued on a bow as the final touch and my arrangement was complete.
Cute, isn’t it?
Hopefully someone notices it this year.
(If not, my total cost for the project was less than $2)
