I used to hate fake flowers. To me, they looked cheap and tacky. If I was going to have anything resembling flowers in my house, they were going to be real ones. Then I grew up, got a job, and realized that having fresh flowers ALL of the time is pretty freaking expensive. And sometimes, you just want a little resemblance of nature in your house without breaking the piggy bank. One way to do this without going the fake route is to have a cutting garden in your yard. Camellias, hydrangeas, roses, peonies, and gardenias are great options. But, if you lack a green thumb or green space, here is a quick and easy arrangement that will only set you back four bucks.
I feel a little silly even writing a "tutorial" on this, so I will keep it brief. I hit up the Dollar Tree for three fake stems (two were the same flower), and then a simple, round glass vase. I cut them down so that the stems were only about an inch taller than the vase. This will make sure the arrangement looks to be nice and full.
That is it! I like these types of faux flowers near a sink, on a nightstand, or mantle. Just a place where you need a little sum'in-sum'in.
