Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Step 1: If you are using floral foam bricks, shape it to fit into the round design dish. This is easy to do with a simple kitchen knife. You can also find a wide variety of sizes and shapes that fit perfectly into plastic dishes HERE.
Step 2: Secure the foam to the plastic design dish. You can glue the foam to the dish, and/or tape the foam to the dish by wrapping it with sticky, waterproof floral tape.
Step 3: Now secure the dish to the center of the candelabra using floral tape and glue to throughly attach these pieces together.
Step 4: Begin adding greenery and hanging accents. Push the hanging Amaranthus stems into the sides of the foam. Then add the lambs ear leaves around the base of the foam, in between the Amaranthus.
Step 5: Now the fun part... the flowers! Start with the largest flower heads, the hydrangeas. Trim the stems using wire cutters, then push the stems into the top of the floral foam. Arrange the three hydrangeas into a "triangle." Fill in the spaces around the large blooms with peonies and roses. Working in threes, keeping the arrangement symmetrical.
Step 6: Finish your arrangement by adding filler flowers and berries to fill in any gaps. Be sure to thoroughly cover the floral foam.
Note - Add the candles to finish the arrangement. You will NOT want to light the candles this close to artificial florals, we recommend using LED tapers.
