BOTAN­I­CAL AR­RANGE­MENT IN A RE­CY­CLED CON­TAINER

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty News -

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.

3 PIC­TURE- PER­FECT Priscelia poses for a photo with her blooms and says: “I en­joyed the free-flow­ing style of this ar­range­ment. I can prac­tise it at home un­til I achieve a more pol­ished look!”
