BOTANICAL ARRANGEMENT IN A RECYCLED CONTAINER
1 A USEFUL TRICK TO GET STARTED Jaclyn says: “You can use items like teapots, colanders and tins in flower arrangements. If the container has a large opening, create a grid over it first to prevent the flowers from spreading out.” To do this, make parallel lines over the opening with adhesive tape, then cross more strips over them to form a grid.
“No wonder all the arrangements I’ve done before have looked scattered and messy. Now I can use this tape method to create better-looking ones!” says Priscelia in delight.
2 THE GARDEN EFFECT Arrangements that look like overgrown gardens are trendy, says Jaclyn. To achieve that effect, choose airy, delicate blooms like pink and white alstroemerias, pink penstemon, green lunaria and bupleurum. Let the leaves droop over the tin to complete the look.
