How to DIY your own floral centrepiece

It’s absolutely exhilarating being able to DIY your very own floral centrepiece with a few simple flowers, unique holders, and your creativity! There’s also something romantic about flowers encapsulated in glass.

Swoon over the colours and intricate textures, encased in a crystal garden, and display this simple floral beauty like a piece of art. So get inspired and work with those petals, whether it’s for a special occasion or just to liven up your day!

Flower Care. Cleanly trim the bottom of each stem (at a diagonal to maximize water
intake) with sharp shears. Keep in buckets of water, removing all the leaves/foliage that will otherwise be submerged. Store flowers in a cool area away from direct sunlight until you are ready to use.

Materials

  • Glass bell jar/cheese dome
  • Floral foam
  • Flowers

Method

  1. Use a knife to shape your floral foam to fit the centre of your cloche. Then, completely soak the floral foam in water until no more bubbles appear.
  2. Position the floral foam in the centre of your cloche and begin to fill with larger blooms. Remember to use the glass lid as a guide for the size of your arrangement.
  3. Add your fillers (smaller flowers) until you’re happy with how it looks.
  4. Gently cover the arrangement with the glass lid and admire your beautiful creation. It should last up to 5 days.
