How To: Floral Arrangement

Who doesn’t love a beautiful flower arrangement to help chase away the winter grays? 
To make your arrangement, select flowers that make you happy and that will brighten your space. Find a vase that will enhance your arrangement and gather up these supplies.
Step 1: I always make my arrangement in my hand first. That way I can make sure that it’s just the way I want it before I begin. Then I’ll snap a picture, so I can reference it as I go.
Step 2: Cut the green florist foam to fit your vase and hot glue it to the bottom. I use wire cutters to cut the stems. The larger flowers tend to have a ton of wires, so I recommend turning the stem while you cut the stem instead of just trying to cut through in one squeeze. (I hope that makes sense). I usually hot glue my stems in the foam, but it isn’t necessary, especially if you think you’ll be making adjustments along the way.
 Step 3: About half way through, I stop, step back and make sure I’m on the right path.
Finished! Front of arrangement.
Vases are from Alice Lane, Flowers are a mix from Tai Pan Trading and Hobby Lobby.
