How To Make A Winter Floral Arrangement using Silk Flowers?
Today, I’m stepping away from making wreaths and showing you how to make a centerpiece for your table (or to sell).
You don’t need very many supplies for this project. In fact, you might already have most of these in your craft supplies:
- Small container (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
- Pine sprays
- Flowers (optional) I used these Winter Cup Blossoms
- Hot glue
How to Make a Faux Winter Floral Arrangement: Step By Step Tutorial
To make your own floral arrangement, just follow these steps.
Before we begin, I started with a container that I already prepared by filling it with faux moss. This tutorial shows you how to prepare your container.
1. Prepare The Pine Sprays
I wanted my pine sprays to have a natural winter look so I started by fluffing them out, pulling the needles away from the middle. I also removed the pine cones.
Then, I created what I called “hairpins” out of my leftover stems from other projects. I’ll use these to hold some of the sprays and pieces into my centerpiece.
2. Attach The Pine Spray To The Box
Using some kind of wires (I used the DIY hairpins I just made), glue the spray to the top of the box. I had to sort of hammer the pins into place – this made the centerpiece really sturdy on top of the box.
3. Add A Second Pine Spray
Trim up your spray so that it’s the perfect size for your centerpiece. Don’t be afraid to trim and cut things after you buy them.
This is the point in the project where we are giving the centerpiece its shape. Stick the tallest spray vertically into the box. Then, fill in the back of the centerpiece with more sprays.
4. Wire Pinecones And Add Them To The Box
Next, twist some florist wire gauge to some of the pinecones you detached earlier. This article explains more about wires and how to choose the best ones for your projects.
Lastly, fill in any “holes” that you see.
Look at your finished project! You could honestly leave it like this – it’s so pretty and perfect for the entire winter season.
The best thing about this tutorial is that it’s as simple or as complex as you make it. You can add just a few pine sprays or keep adding layers of different flowers – it is up to you.
5. Optional – Keep Adding Greenery
If you have extra greenery pieces leftover from other projects, keep adding more layers and depth. Pay attention to the colors you use.
I love changing adding a variety of textures to my projects. You can even add a few flowers and more pinecones too!
