Several bloggers requested the tutorial so I tried to create one. If you still have any questions after you read this please let me know.
Because I used a huge container for my fall floral arrangement, I had to fill it up. I stuffed it with a newspaper and ads. The newspaper makes a good base because it has some give to it and yet it also holds everything in place well.
Here are all of my floral stems.
I have 4 twiggy type stems. Sorry I don’t know the proper name for some of this stuff.
I used 2 leaf bushes.
A grass bush. That sounds funny. If you have a better name please tell me.
And 5 floral stems that contain a variety of things such as a hydrangea, berries, leaves and a pheasant feather.
I bought all of these last year. If you wait for them to be 50% off, your arrangement won’t cost so much.
First I added the grass bush and the twiggy stems. I put 2 twiggy stems on either side of the grass and placed all of it in the center of the can.
Next I added one leaf bush in the front and one in the back and worked with them until they circled the stems and grass.
The 5 floral stems were added last. I probably could have used 6, but I just put the bare spot in the back.
Once you put them all in you will want to play with it all a bit until you get the look you like. I had to pull the leaf bushes up a bit and fluff them. I made sure the hydrangeas were around the edge of the container.
I think one of the easiest ways to arrange flowers is to to have a variety of height. It makes it much more interesting.
I hope this helped and you will create a beautiful fall arrangement. If you do let me know. I would love to see it.
