New Series: A Few of My Favorite Things – Flower Arranging

IMG_0847The Beach Basket

Select a basket, put a plastic cup with oasis on the left. Put blocks of artificial flower oasis on the right to fill the space. Insert a spray painted branch in the oasis towards the back. Glue on a few artificial berries.

IMG_0849Cover the edges of the cup with greenery to hide the cup and oasis. Cover the artificial blocks on right with sand. Place three flowers in oasis and finish with a single dynamic flower with a short stem. Tuck in a few shells and  a dab of spanish moss here and there. IMG_0848

Your beach basket is done. So much fun! One of my favorite things….playing with flowers. You can have fun too.
