Supplies needed for this project:
scissors (I didn’t actually use these, but they would be necessary if your small round was too big)
flowers of your choice
small floral styrofoam round that will either fit your bowl or you can cut down to fit
Step 1: Cut each of the flowers to around the same length. I attempted to cut mine a little long, because I knew I could always shorten them later. You will also want to leave that same amount of wiggle room since the size of each bowl will be different.
Step 2: Once you’ve cut all the flowers down check and see how you’d like them arranged in the bowl. I mostly wanted to make sure that my colors matched up pretty evenly. At this point, you will also be able to see if you’re going to need to cut down the stems some more or not.
Step 4: Once you’ve settled on how you want the arrangement to look, you will want to insert the stems into the styrofoam round. They should push down fairly easy. The last flower was a little bit more difficult since as you can see I didn’t want to smush any of the flowers I had already inserted.
Step 5: Elmer’s spray adhesive was an additional supply that I used. Once all my flowers were in the bowl, I lifted them out with the round attached and sprayed the bowl with spray adhesive (apparently we missed this picture!). I reinserted the round into the bowl and held it inside for a moment allowing the glue to set. You could also do this step before inserting the flowers.
Now all you have to do is pick the perfect spot for your arrangement. We settled on the living room table so that it can be enjoyed by everyone! Don’t mind the collection of Longaberger baskets that I still don’t have plans for yet! I swear that’s coming next. Also, I swear I’m going to fix my nails this week!
