Faux Peony Arrangement

Create this timeless peony arrangement with real touch flowers and this simple step-by-step tutorial from Rachel Elizabeth Creates. Using artificial flowers and acrylic water this arrangement will stay forever fresh. 

Faux Peony Arrangement

Materials: 5 Real Touch Peony BundlesAcrylic Water Kit, Clear Glass Cylinder Vase, Wire Cutters, and a Stir Stick.

Faux Peony Arrangement

Step 1: Before you begin setting your acrylic water you will want to cut your stems down to size and pre-arrange your blooms. A good way to measure is to hold your stem against your vessel and cut, this will usually give you a little extra length to adjust as needed.

Step 2: Start arranging your stems inside your vessel. I chose to use the taller ones in the middle and smaller around the sides so I would have a rounded top look.

Step 3: Completely read the directions on your water kit. These are chemicals so you want to make sure you do everything as instructed. You will want to use something disposable such as a wooden popsicle stick or plastic spoon to stir your compounds.

Step 4: As instructed, mix your two bottles completely. It is very important that you use the exact same amount of both chemicals to properly set your arrangement.

Step 6: Add  to your flowers, you can move and adjust them as needed without any worry, your mixture will not dry quickly. Your arrangement will need to sit overnight, undisturbed, and out of direct sunlight to completely set.
