Step 1: Gather your supplies
You will need to have:
- A small bucket
- Floral foam
- Wire floral cutters
- Hot glue (optional)
Step 2: Floral Foam
Place floral foam in the bucket. You can hot glue the floral foam to the inside bottom of the bucket to make sure that it is secure. I did not hot glue the foam block to the bucket because I was lazy. #Truth!
Step 3: Three in a row
Cut three flower stems down to size. Now, place them three in a row down the middle- like a mohawk.
FYI: I can totally picture my Mom reading this and asking, “What are you doing, Erika?” My mom is the expert crafter just so you know. I make no such claims about myself.
Step 4: Fill in the empty space
The key is always to keep your flowers symmetrical. Meaning, whatever you do on one side of your arrangement, you want to repeat on the opposite side. It’s kind of like your hairstyle…you want it to look good both coming and going 😀
I added one flower to one side of the arrangement. Then, I added a flower to the same spot on the other side. I repeated this process until all of the blank space was filled and I had a full floral arrangement.
I wound up placing the greenery in a few spots throughout the floral arrangement to give it a more natural look.
That’s it my friends! See, it wasn’t that hard was it? I hope that this easy DIY inspires you to do some crafting and decorating of your own!
