Many readers commented how much they loved my flower arrangement on this post. My sweet Instagram friend, Ibie, walked me through the process of making that arrangement. Go check out her IG page. It is GORGEOUS! Today, I thought I'd show you how to make a similar arrangement using faux florals. I typically like to use real flowers but they just don't last very long. I wanted to have at least one floral arrangement that I didn't have to worry about. This was something I tried for the very first time and I'm sharing it with you at the same time.
Here it is completed, but let's start at the beginning.
Gather your supplies. I purchased many more stems then I thought I would ever need. I ended up using them all but you can easily return whatever isn't used.
This brass pedestal bowl was purchased at a local thrift store. I used two foam discs and glued them together for my base.
Next, start outward with your branchy-er (is that even a word?) stems and work your way in.
I purchased many different "bush" florals and just snipped them apart using wire cutters.
Keep filling in.
Place the main flowers in the middle. Stand back and reevaluate your work. If something is too tall, pull it out and cut it down. It's easier to shorten a flower than lengthen it, so start tall. I ended up shortening these hydrangeas a bit more.
Keep filling in. Not one leaf went in the trash. I even wired some leaves with floral wire and pushed them in to give the arrangement more depth.
And there you have it! A gorgeous centerpiece that never dies!!
I purchased most of these stems at 40% off at my local craft center. Go for the florals that look the most real.
I hope you try this at home and have fun while doing it!!
