I thought you might enjoy looking at an "autumn bouquet" from last year. Karleen made this cute bouquet for Mrs. Flower Lady's birthday last year. She used the same technique that we used for the pumpkin bouquets, but with a few different materials. Instead of a pumpkin, Karleen used a decorative gourd for the base. She covered the base completely with mums, stalk, asters, and boxwood. The small, handle portion of the gourd became the head. She attached flowers to the head to create a hat. A ribbon around the next created a scarf and she was set to go. A little imagination and a bit of time can work together provide a very rewarding and creative time!
