Step 1:

Trim the branch if needed using a saw.

Step 2:

Drill some holes, at an angle, large enough to accommodate the greenery branches. Make sure to drill on the top and side branches and leave spaces in between. Do it in your work area as it may become dusty.

Step 3:

Remove each leaf from the garland. Do the same with the hydrangeas.

Step 4:

Place the leaves from the garland into the stems of the hydrangeas.

Step 5:

Paint the Dollar Tree wastebasket with plaster chalk paint on all sides and let it dry completely.

Step 6:

Measure the size of your wastebasket using the pool noddles, and move it down just a few inches away. Cut it into that size using a blade. Make some more with that measurement and stuff them into the wastebasket. To fill the spaces, cut some in half and smaller pieces.

Step 7:

Insert the long branch on the pool in the middle. Make sure it’s tight and secure.

Step 8:

Use the net bag from the stones, cover the top of the pool noodles, then add the stones. Make sure to cover everything.
