As we’re getting ready and excited for an early spring, what better way to bring in a nice potted flower arrangement into your home? Shelling out for a professional or pre-made arrangement is unnecessary- save money AND show your crafty skills by making your own! Here is a tutorial video with some basics of flower arrangement-making.
Here’s what you need to begin:
Your pot or container; potted plants (orchids)- we buy ours wholesale at NYC’s flower market; forest wood chips (soaked in cool water), staghorn moss; aquarium stones or pebbles; long, thin reeds/bamboos/sticks for support; waxed string
A few tips:
-water weekly with a mister spray bottle
-soak the wood to keep some moisture in the bottom for your plants to drink
-I like to match the color of the pot and rocks for continuity and a modern look
-Before buying plants, make sure you have some buds- and make sure they look green and healthy
-Have fun and enjoy your hands-on project!
