Instructions

  1. Use Foam Cutter to trim one Desert Foam® Brick to fit inside basket. Hot glue on bottom to hold. Cut second Brick in half, lengthwise and glue on top of first Brick for additional height. (Save remaining half for another project.)
  2. Use Floral Shears to cut 2 yds. Decorative Mesh. Fold in half, lengthwise and then use Floral Pin to hold one end down at back of basket against Brick. (Use dot of hot glue to secure if needed.) To make Mesh “poofs” all around inside edge of basket, gather and scrunch mesh into 4″ – 6″ poofs, securing with Pins in Brick, going all around basket. (Note: Allow Mesh to poof and move to create a random look that shows above basket rim.) When you reach the end, secure with Pin and tuck both raw ends under the nearest poofs.
  3. Use Wire Cutter to cut apart and separate flowers and leaf stems from one of each type of bush, leaving stems as long as possible. (Wait to cut apart other bushes until you’re arranging and can see how many more flowers are needed.)
  4. Start by randomly inserting large Hydrangeas into basket. (Insert stems into Brick so they radiate out, following shape of basket.) Continue by randomly inserting Lilacs. Allow some to extend above Hydrangeas for a staggered look. Finish by inserting berry spray sprigs, all throughout arrangement. Add any additional flowers as needed.
  5. Remove a few large green leaves from leftover Hydrangeas and tuck in among flowers and Mesh loops, spot gluing to hold.
