    Thought that I would share this with anyone who wants to make their own greenery similar to the store but much cheaper!

    First I went to the dollar store and bought supplies;

    glue stick for my glue gun $1
    styrofoam balls 2 for $1
    bag of river rocks $1
    greenery bought 3 bunches for $1 each

    Total cost $6

    Things that I already had at home;

    glue gun
    wire cutters

    I took a saw or bread knife to cut the styrofoam balls in half, place the flat side on the table, make holes to place greenery into and then hot glue it in.
    After the greenery then you hot glue the river rock in the spaces to cover the styrofoam. If you have any foam showing just hot glue smaller pieces of greenery in those spots.

    I was at Jo-Ann the other day with my gf and she told me about making them this way. I did the typical "pfft" and off we went. Now that I see your creations, I'll have to take that "pfft" back
