flower diy & happy friday!

September 17, 2010

We all love the gallery party we posted earlier this week and here is a tutorial of how the floral arrangements were created.  We love that these are simple flowers you can pick up yourself … and with just a few tools you have a lovely arrangement!

Tools: serrated floral knife, pruners/garden clippers, 20-24 gauge floral wire, paper scissors

Flowers: pink gerbera daisies, dark pink roses, red pixie carnations, orange tulips, yellow ranunculus, yellow mums, kermit poms, bear grass, blue hydrangeas, purple liatris

A few tips: Keep the flowers in cold water until you are ready to use them. Strip the stems of excess foliage. Secure smaller bundles of flowers with a rubber band or floral wire. Trim the ends at an angle. You can tweak the flowers as you go until you get the right look. Have fun!

Thanks, Brittany, for sharing.  And Nicole for the lovely photography!

Utter gorgeousness, Megan! I have been so in love with rainbows lately, and this has to be one of the most amazing things I’ve seen yet.
