Synthetic flowers do not have to come from a specialty shop to look nice. All of these came from the Dollar Tree; this arrangement cost ;es than $25 to make. The key to beautiful arrangements is to cut the stems apart; when the blooms come in clusters of three or more, clip them so you have more control over where you place each stem. This also prevents your foam from breaking apart quickly due to the large holes from the original, thick stem. My original photo size was small, so I apologize if the photos are not sharp. Also, this is not a paper craft, but this is the closest project category that Craftsy has.
