It would depend on the type that you want. You can make a spray arrangement and tie it with a ribbon and lay it on the grave and fasten it down with some kind of wire picks. You can buy metal cone shaped vases with long prongs on them that stick into the ground and just stick some silk flowers in the vase.

In my family we have started just buying the inexpensive floral bushes that you can buy at the WalMart stores, because we all live so far from the cemeteries that it is hard for us to always get back to pick up the arrangements by the removal date. These bushes can just be stuck into the ground. Sometimes you might have to use a sharp item of some kind to make the hole to stick them in. It depends on how hard the ground is.

Use a vase to create everyday arrangements. Place small rocks into the bottom of the vase for weight. Place the chosen flowers together in a bunch and add a flower insert or pick into the arrangement. Place this bunch into the vase, securing with adhesive, if desired. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the vase.

Step 5 Create a simple arrangement by placing a decorative ribbon around a bunch of flowers and then placing them on the grave. Good luck.

Simple wooden crosses are cheap and easy to make. Wire two pieces together or glue or screw them securely and then decorate to please. Cut an angle on the bottom to ease them into the ground.

I found a flower holder at Harriet Carter for $8.95 and it fits over the tombstone at the top. You can then buy your choice of flowers and stick them down in the foam and there you have a nice arrangement. I made one of these for Christmas with poinsettias and it turned out beautiful. Good luck. Connie
