The color on this rose is to die for. It plays very well in the sandbox with Christmas greens!
An old glass lampshade, a three wheeling castor, a hurricane, a candle holder, a candle, floral foam, flowers, and greens. Oopsie doops...forgot the pinecone and the water softener salt.
Set the glass lampshade in the castor. Fits like a glove!
Candle holder is set at the bottom on the shade. 
Next comes the candle...I put a little warm wax in the bottom first. Just saying.
Bring on the hurricane!
Soak the floral and cut to fit around the hurricane. The foam has double duty...holds the flowers and greens while also holding the hurricane in place. Thats a good thing if you are going to be rolling this baby down the table!
I dropped water softener inside the hurricane. It will glisten when the candle is lit and also hides the foam from being seen through the glass. Yet another twofer in this great big world of twofers!
At the base of the piece I threw a few petals and some greens. It is indeed all in the details!
The back side of this little pretty!
Deck the halls and fa la la!

Now after laying a finger aside of my nose and giving a nod (sorry couldn't rhyme anything) a Christmas arrangement this becomes! Very simple, very festive...and it rolls of course! I would find this to be a highlight! Squirrel! Ah,hahaha!

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
