The unusually warm and summery September weather is pouring honey on my heart! But it's too bad for my blogging, because I'm not feeling the Fall vibe at all. The Internet is filled with Halloween decorations and autumn colors, yet here I am sunbathing on Sundays and walking around in my sandals. So I thought I should do something in between seasons, for now. A quick and easy flower arrangement :)
To make this flower ball, you need an Autumn flower bouquet (mine is from a friend's backyard), a bit of floral foam and 5 minutes of your time. The floral foam can come in cylinders, but mine was a brick shape and I had to cut it by hand.
1. Immerse the floral foam in water for a few of minutes, otherwise the flowers will die the same day;
2. Cut each flower short and remove all the leaves. Your flowers should look like blooms on a stick;
3. Make a round shape from the floral foam. Use a knife to cut the wet foam and don't be afraid to do it;
4. Adjust the length of the flower according to your foam dimensions and insert them into the wet foam, one at a time. For a balanced design, use the biggest blooms first and try to spread them evenly on all angles.
5. Fill in all the visible spots using the smaller flowers. Turn over to check if you missed any bare areas.
I just wanna thank Betsy from Romance On A Dime for featuring this little project :)
