Instructions

  1. Hot glue Desert Foam® Brick into bottom of planter, to hold.
  2. Use Floral Shears to cut ten 12″ lengths Black Decorative Mesh. One at a time, roll each length into 2″ diameter x 21″ long roll, grasp and twist at center and use Floral Pin to secure into edge of Brick in planter. (Note: This allows the two rolls to extend out from rim of planter, uncoiled slightly at ends.) Continue adding Mesh rolls, arranging them all around outside of Brick: Three at front, three at back, one at each short side. Then add two more in top, middle of Brick.
  3. Use Wire Cutter to cut apart and separate flowers from six bushes, leaving stems as long as possible. (Wait to cut apart remaining bushes until you’re arranging and can see how many more flowers are needed.)
  4. Insert longest stems into Brick down center of planter and slightly trim stems of flowers closest to container edges to create a gently curved silhouette. Arrange Mesh rolls among flowers as you go, allowing middle ones to extend slightly above flowers and others to fold over edge of planter. Finish by filling in with any additional flowers cut from bushes as needed.
