ok, so in this case it's fern arranging.  my parents wanted a fern to go in their bathroom on the little dividing wall between the shower and bath tub.  they had found others that they liked already assembled/arranged at Michaels for in the kitchen, but they just couldn't find one they liked for this area.  so, I went to Hobby Lobby with my dad to look at some completed ferns, but again, he couldn't find anything he liked.  then he thought maybe we could make one.  find the right container, buy some fake ferns, a little moss and some floral foam and we'd be set.  he found the perfect basket, we grabbed some chartreuse moss, pins, a fern, and an extra frond.  sat down today to put it all together.  he had to cut a little off the shaft of the fern since I'm so weak, and the center piece of the fern was way too tall, so he cut that down too.  then, I stuffed it all in the foam and it looked perfect.  it took it back out so I could add the moss with pins and a little glue, put the fern back in, added the frond, and ta-da!  a new, one-of-a-kind potted fern!  and it only cost $29.03!!!  SMALLER ones were upwards of $100, on sale at 50% off.  doing it this way, they got what they wanted and saved over $70!!!  actually, I had a coupon for the fern and the basket was 50% off, so even if they were full price, we still would have saved about $65.

whatcha think?  I'm pretty happy with it and I now want to make more!!!  maybe even make something with flowers this time!  Grin
