Fall is just around the corner and a lot of are getting things ready to welcome the season.
I love the fall time. The days start to get a little more crisp.
Today in this post I will be showing you how to make your own faux flower arrangement so you don't have to buy fresh flowers every week. It's a great way to save!
The first things you'll need are these:
• Flower cutters
• Transparent tape
• Vase of choice for your flowers
• Lots and lots of fall flowers
First you will begin by cutting all the flowers in sections. Take off all the leaves because those make the faux flowers definitely look fake and not to mention cheap. When you have all your flowers stripped, put them aside.
Try to look for the ones that look more realistic to give your arrangement a better look.Grab your vase and foam and measure out the size of foam you need for your vase. In my case, the foam I bought was the perfect size for the vase I used. It doesn't reach the bottom of the vase which is what I wanted. Since my vase is transparent, I don't want the foam to show on the bottom.
Now that you've cut your foam and glued it to the vase, cut a couple pieces of tape and put them around the vase so it doesn't move and come out the minute you start putting your flowers in.
Now it's time to put the flowers. Start by putting flowers around the vase so it starts looks full.
Now that you've done that, keep adding flowers but this time don't stick them all the way down. Leave them a little out as if to be floating in the air. Not pushing them all the way down will make them look more natural.
Keep adding flowers until you don't see any foam in your vase.
Start adding greenery making sure you cut long pieces so they drape down your arrangement. This ensures your arrangement looks realistic.
I tried to make the color purple stand out from all the flowers I purchased since that's the color I'm using for this fall. You choose your color and you'll see how easy it is to make your own arrangement! You'll have flowers to last you.
These purple hanging flowers look so beautiful and real. Try to only hang them on one side. Don't put them all around the arrangement.
Voila!! Here's the final result. Came out great didn't it? I love how it looks in my house! Like I said before, this arrangement will last me a long time and I don't have to worry about buying flowers. Leave me your comments below and let me know if you liked this and want to see more DIY. Until next time!
