Take a “more is more” ap­proach and cre­ate a high im­pact flo­ral dis­play, con­struct­ing it from the floor up

FLO­RAL DIS­PLAY HOW-TO

• This dra­matic dis­play was cre­ated us­ing over­sized

glass test tubes and stacks of flo­ral foam. • Cre­ate a ‘tower’ for your flow­ers by se­cur­ing a large, square piece of flo­ral foam onto a tray (use a suit­able glue ad­he­sive or strong, wa­ter-re­sis­tant dou­ble-sided tape). Stick a tall dowel rod/stick into the cen­tre of your base piece of flo­ral foam and then add smaller square pieces of flo­ral foam un­til you reach your pre­ferred height. • Care­fully dampen your flo­ral foam us­ing a wa­ter­ing can. • Start plac­ing your flow­ers un­til you are happy with your com­po­si­tion, mak­ing sure that none of the flo­ral foam is vis­i­ble. • Use wild grasses to add height.
