When I can find billy balls and thistle, I make 4 of these little arrangements to put throughout the house for a pop of color that lasts and lasts and lasts. I'm talking a solid month or more if you remember to not let the water get icky.
I love to put them in the guest bedroom and bathroom and then...forget about them. LOL! I love the personal touch that flowers on the nightstand adds to the welcome level your guests should feel and this is super cute with a nice little pop of color. Wrap a bit of kitchen twine around the neck and VOILA! You're doing big things with minimal effort.
