Want an easy way to brighten a room? Just make a flower arrangement. It will lift anybody’s mood!Start with a container of your choice. Fill with water and flower food. I read this recently….you can actually substitute the food and water with equal parts lemon-lime soda and water!Adhere scotch tape vertically and horizontally.When choosing your flowers, always have a greenery. This is aster I am using. You will want to choose different textures, too.
For colors, I usually stick to either a cool or warm combo. For example: pinks, blues, purples and whites go well together. While, oranges, yellows and reds going well together.
Here, I am making a warm-toned bouquet.Hold the flower next to the vase to see where to cut. Then cut the other stems the same length.I loved these green balls for a different texture of greenery.Again, hold the stem beside the vase to see where to cut. Then cut the rest of the stems to same length. Continue doing this with each flower.I used these hypericum for my red component.I used sunflowers for a yellow component.
Now play around with your arrangement carefully by gently placing components in between tape.
These sunflowers had a mind of their own with their twisty stems. I had to trim them down farther than I first intended to.Remember to change out your water every couple of days and replenish plant food.
I hope you give it a try! Let me know!
