Two years have quickly passed since I put together my simple Fall floral arrangements and shared them here with you on Pet Scribbles . . .

Simple Fall Floral Arrangements, using faux florals and stems from Michaels!

Back in 2014, I completely fell in love with the gorgeous faux flowers and stems at Michaels — and this year their selection is even better.

If you want to see many of those stems close up before you decide to buy – click here to see that blog post.

I’m happy to tell you that A) Michaels still carries these gorgeous giant Sunflowers and assorted Fall stems; and B) all of the Fall florals and stems at Michaels are currently 50% off!

And no — this is not a sponsored post for Michaels. Like two years ago, this is just me loving their stems and deciding to update my two-year-old arrangements!

Here’s what they originally looked like, both in 2014 and 2015:

How many of you IKEA-lovers have those canisters from IKEA above? LOL

Having grown several different colors of Yarrow in our gardens, I can tell you that these faux Yarrow floral stems are ah-MAZ-zing-ly lifelike! Michaels has them in a few different colors. I chose the cream.

Adding just a few extra stems to the previous Fall arrangements from two years ago completely freshened them up!

The arrangements are fuller and have more color throughout. Just like I wanted.

Instead of keeping both arrangements identical — even though the canisters are two different widths — this time I made the wider can hold a larger arrangement.

The burnt orange flower is the only stem not from Michaels. This flower stem was given to us as part of a gift from one of my husband’s relatives in Germany at our Fall wedding (almost) 10 years ago!

The arrangements are so pretty on our mantel, where they will stay through the Thanksgiving holiday!

I’d love to show you our mantel, however it’s the darkest room in the house. That’s what you get when you decide to paint your living room in a taupe color.

Get thee to Michaels and snag some of these up, regardless!

Happy decorating!
