How do you make tall centerpieces for your wedding? Follow along and "DIY" your way through your wedding floral arrangements!
Tall Cylinder Vase
Artificial Hydrangeas & Baby's Breath
Preserved Rose Heads
Preserved Rose Leaves
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Floral Foam Cylinder
Step 1: Line the top of your glass cylinder with glue and firmly press the foam down on top of the vase.
Step 2: Trim the hydrangea stems to size and remove any unwanted greenery. You can add hot glue to the ends of the stems for extra hold or just push the stems of the flowers directly into the floral foam. Start at the center and work your way around creating a sphere shape.
Step 3: Fill the cup of the plastic rose stems with hot glue and push the preserved rose head stem onto the cup. Create all the rose stems at once and set aside to dry. Once dry, add a preserved rose leaf spray to a handful of the stems, securing the spray with floral tape.
Step 4: Add the preserved rose stems to the arrangement, pushing the plastic stems into the floral foam. Work around the arrangement, adding roses between all the hydrangeas.
Step 5: Give your floral design texture with real touch baby's breath. Trim the baby's breath using wire cutters and add them to the arrangement, filling in any gaps.
Mix and match you flowers to fit your wedding color palette, this floral arrangement is so easy, and with faux & preserved flowers you can make this long before your wedding day.
