DIY Patriotic Arrangement

Create this beautiful but simple geranium arrangement for your next patriotic or July 4th party in just a few simple steps!

Step 1: Gather the items needed to create your arrangement. We used 3 red geranium bushes, a wooden planter box, acrylic paint, dry floral foam, and wire cutters to clip down the stems.

Step 2: Tape off the wooden planter with painters tape to ensure a nice, straight stripe design. 

Steps 3 & 4: Paint your red, white, and blue stripes, allowing each color to dry before moving on to the next. Remember to tape off each stripe section as you go.

Step 5: Clip down the floral geranium bushes to separate flower stems and remove any extra leaves. Set the leaves aside for later. 

Step 6: Begin inserting the geraniums stems into the dry foam starting in the center. 

Step 7: Continue inserting the geranium stems working from the center of the arrangement out to the sides until you get the look you are going for.

Step 8: Fill in and cover any empty areas with the foliage you have left over.
