Formula Z/S

This unusual, lush display is rustic and modern at once -- and inexpensive and easy enough to make yourself.

Tools and Materials

1/4-inch wire-mesh hardware cloth

Multipurpose scissors

Chain-nose pliers

A soup can

Fully bloomed white roses in plastic floral tubes with water

Dried moss

Moss-and-Rose Centerpiece How-To

To make the centerpiece, cut wire mesh into pieces 8 1/2 inches long and 3 7/8 inches wide (big enough to wrap around the can with 1/4-inch overlap); the two long sides and one of the short sides should have smooth edges; the other short side should have the wire ends protruding. Use pliers to bend protruding wires into hooks. Wrap mesh around can, and hook wire ends into squares of overlapping edge. Remove can, and fill wire form with moss. Poke floral tube into moss so rose rests on the moss.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

I just finished making these as a trial run for my centerpieces using faux peonies. LOVE THEM! So easy to make and they look fantastic!!!
