making this: a tape grid bouquet
Do people know about doing this? Well, when I found out, it pretty much changed my floral arranging life. I’m not actually huge into creating bouquets, I usually like choosing one flower and sticking with it, but this would totally work even better with a whole bunch of different kinds of flowers!
step one – get a vase (square or rectangle work best) and tape and flowers (duh.)
step two – fill with water. tape across one direction, you can keep the strips long.
step three – tape the other way, creating a grid.
step four – go around slicing off the tape with an exacto.
step five – place the flowers where you’d like them. now that the tape is there, it’ll keep everything in place and looking very tight.
You so done.
Good idea! 🙂
