How to make a beautiful Floral Centerpiece with roses – DIY at home
Make a different shape, than the common floral arrangements
What am I going to need?
- 25 stems of Lavender roses (Cool Water variety)
- 25 stems of light pink roses (Geraldine variety)
- Cloth piece, choose a bright color, a pink color will be great.
- Cristal piece
- Floral Foam bricks; floral foam extends the life of your flower arrangements by giving them a reliable and steady water source.
- Garden scissors
Now get creative!!!!!!!!!
First step: The foam brick you bought probably won’t fit into your cristal vase; you must carefully cut it to fit.
You must resist the attraction to crush or press the delicate foam in its dry state. The air-filled cells crush easily, and the water-holding capabilities of the foam are destroyed when the foam is compacted. You must thoroughly hydrate your floral foam before working with this material!
Second step: Place the pink fabric piece in the cristal vase.
Third step: Cut the stems if the stems are too long, we will need roses with a stemlength of 11 inch. Cut the flowers at an angle, so they can uptake more water from the foam.
Fourth step: Place the flower and foliage into the Foam. Do not pre-poke holes in the foam for easier insertion of weak flower stems. This will result in poor stem-to-foam contact. Insert first of all one stem in a vertical position, a second stem in a horizontal position and keep on filling you’re the foam. Fill in the nature space between the horizontal stem and the vertical stem of your foam. The rest you can fill in with leafs.
Don’t forget the put water into the foam after the arrangement is made each 3 – 4 days. This will increase the vase life of your roses.
Fifth step: insert the Foam into the vase
