The other day as I was cleaning and found the wicker base and had an idea. I found some brown spray paint. I got so excited that I forgot to take a before picture. While the paint was drying, I headed to A. C. Moore for a couple of items.
You could always wrap jute or rope around a vase for a similar look if you wanted to actually have it hold real flowers. I was going to use it to hold a candle since mine was hallow.
I purchased the berries and the silk mum for $1 each. I had the ribbon, moss, and the candle.
I found a piece of Styrofoam and placed it in the top to support the candle(battery type). I had to cut it down a little so that it fit tight. You could also add a plate on top to place a real candle.
I wanted to decorate the vase for fall, but make it so I could change it for other holidays. After trimming the stems off the berries and the mum, I wrapped ribbon around the vase to hold the berries and the mum in place.
Although they were secure, I could easily change them out.
Next I added some ribbon. This was left over from some project.
