Happy Monday! It has been a full week with lots going on around our home. New babies coming into our family, lots of visitors, and Spring is in full force around our home. That brings me to why I am here today. I want to show you How to Make a Floral Arrangement (in a few easy steps)
It does take a little time to make your first floral arrangement, especially if you are picky. (SO, it does take me awhile) BUT, once you get what you like, it’s easy peasy from that point on.
What you will need:
Artificial Floral Stems
small crystals as a filler at the bottom
Using 3 different types of flowers, I cut them all at various lengths.
As a typical rule of thumb, your tallest flower stems should be double the height of your vase or container.
Also, odd numbers look best.
For this particular arrangement, I am going to add a stem of crystals for a little bling.
Since the crystal stem is so much shorter than the rest of the others, I used floral tape to attach it to al taller stem. This way it is as tall as the other florals in the arrangement.
Now for the fun part…
Adding each stem to the vase.
This is where it can or can’t be tricky, depending upon how picky you are.
Fill the bottom of your vase with crystals, stones, or marbles.
I bought mine at Christmas time (on sale of course) But, I know you can find them all year long at Hobby Lobby, Joanns, or Michaels.
I love the look and the added texture that the crystals create.
Add your various stems one at a time, gradually filling up your vase.
You can twist or bend the flowers to your liking.
Here are a few views all around the vase. As you want it to be appealing from every angle.
You could even add some ribbon or twine around the middle for a little creative touch.
For this floral arrangement, I used artificial flowers. But the same rules and guidelines apply for real flowers, too.
If you haven’t ever made a floral arrangement before, this is a great way to start.
It’s fun to pick out colors and flowers fit you and your personality. They could be placed in your bathroom, on the kitchen table, or even used at a wedding for centerpieces.
Thanks for joining me while I taught How to Make a Floral Arrangement (in a few easy steps).
It is always a pleasure to have you here.
Make it a memorable Monday…
