Making a perfect flower arrangement can feel pretty overwhelming. Where do I start? How do I know where to place the flowers so my flower arrangement looks cohesive. What container do I use? Well, I have a few little tricks that I follow. So, I thought I should let you guys know of a simple way to accomplish this, because it is way easier than you think.
2 “bunches” of artificial flowers (depending on how big you want your arrangement) These are the ones I used.
6-8 “stems/picks” of smaller flowers
Spanish Moss (to cover the green foam, if need be)
Container – These are REALLY cute
Wire cutters (to trim flower stems)
Knife (to trim the green foam block to fit your container)
You can purchase artificial flowers a couple of different ways. There are “stems or picks” and there are “bunches.” You will be using both for this type of simple flower arranging. The “bunches” have a lot of the hard work already done. “Bunches” already have different sizes and heights to each flower. It resembles a mini flower arrangement. Sometimes they are sparse so you may need to use a couple of bunches per flower arrangement, depending on what look you want. The “stems/picks” will be used as a filler to do just that. They fill the space between the sparse bunch of flowers.
The first thing people think of when making flower arrangements is to use a vase. Although that obviously works, I like to think outside of the box. I have mostly used vintage items for my flower arrangement containers in our home. I’ve used antique bowls for shorter flower arrangements, old urns, and vintage baskets. The options are endless.
Keep in mind, you will want your container about 1/3 as tall as your flower arrangements. (You can cut your flower stems to the right height) If you want a short squatty arrangement for the middle of your table, you will want to keep your container short, as well as cut your flowers accordingly.
Using a knife, cut the foam block to fit tight inside of your container.
Place the flower “bunch or bunches” directly in the middle of the foam. Depending how big you want your arrangement will determine how many bunches.
I like my flower arrangements to look the same from all different directions. You will too, if you are going to display it in a room where it can be seen from all sides.
Start adding the “stems/picks” between the “bunch” to fill it all in. You may have to trim the end off of each stem if they are too long. I like to keep mine a little longer so that they drape nicely around the pot.
You can use spanish moss on top of the green foam block between the stems if you want. Usually if your container is wide at the top, it looks best to do so. If it is smaller, you can get away without it.
Then you “fluff her up.” Pull all of the pieces down to drape over the container and mix all of the different flowers together at the same time.
So there you have it. The EASY way to make a simple artificial flower arrangement. I hope that helps all of you who are overwhelmed with the entire idea. With these simple steps, YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!
