DIY Floral Arrangement with Floral Wire Netting and Floral Frogs

Arrange a lasting centerpiece like a pro with this tutorial by Ever Something and our premium silk flowers

DIY Floral Arrangement

Materials: For this arrangement you'll need a wide mouth vase, chicken wire, flower frog, floral sticky clay, and wire cutters

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 1: Lay out the flowers you'll be using to assess which colors and textures you like next to each other.

DIY Flower Arrangement

Step 2: Use the sticky clay to attach the flower frog to the base of your vase by stretching it out and pushing it down on to the back of the frog. Push the frog down into the center of the vase. Use a towel to secure it without hurting your hand. 

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 3: Cut your chicken wire in a square a little bigger than your vase and fold in the edges to form the shape of the bowl. 

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 4: Start with your larger stems and foliage to create the shape of your arrangement. Make sure the thicker and heavier stems are secured into the frog by sticking the stem straight into the nails of the frog. 

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 5: Once you've created the shape of your arrangement with the foliage you'll begin to add in the larger flowers such as roses, peonies and dahlias. These will likely be the focal of your arrangement but don't have to be clustered together. By adding them in on different levels and facing in different directions they create a more natural look. 

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 6: At this point your arrangement will be quite full and you don't need to pay attention to the frog anymore. The chicken wire and other stems will hold up the remaining flowers you add in. Add in your medium size flowers in pairs and and balance them throughout the arrangement. 

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 7: Add your accent flowers such as poppies, cosmos, ranunculus and other things that have thinner stems and give the arrangement a whimsical feeling. Add these up high and spilling out of the bottom to accentuate the shape. 

DIY Floral Arrangement

Step 8: Fill in the back and any other holes or areas that need more color.
