I am so excited to share this project with you guys this week! It may be slightly more difficult but the result is well worth it. I was surfing through Martha Stewart's website
for Easter decoration ideas and found this gorgeous arrangement! I love spring for the gorgeous and fun colors you see in the flowers and how they translate into interiors. This arrangement is a perfect example of the gorgeous colors of spring!
Isn't it just amazing? And the best part is that you can make it yourself! Start by forcing
cherry blossoms and other flowering trees and shrubs. Place watertight liners such as pl
astic food containers in a trough or basket like the one above. Then, fill the liners 2/3 full with tepid water. Next, cut chicken wire twice the size of the opening of the watertight liner and stuff into the liner. Spread sheet moss over the liner and wire to conceal. If the liner is visible from the trough or basket, place lichen between the walls of the liner and trough. Cut cherry blossoms, dogwood, and spirea branches at staggering heights. Cut them at a45 degree angle and slit them vertically. Then, push branches through moss until anchored in the wire. Arrange until you're satisfied with the results. Check the water level every other day. A great source for floral supplies is http://www.save-on-crafts.com/
. They're also fabulous if you plan on going the artificial floral route!
Happy Friday! DIY Jill
