If you’ve been reading Mirror80 this month, you know it’s been my dream to construct a sculptural floral arrangement in a ceramic round planter. Today we debut the DIY results, and we couldn’t be more excited! This project has an undeniably ’80s look. What keeps it from looking outdated? You have to commit 100% to clearly taking it over the top. Bright colors and lots of height help to achieve this goal, as you’ll see below…
First let’s talk supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:
- One ceramic round planter in the shade of your choice
- A Styrofoam disc that will fit neatly inside the planter
- Faux flowers
- Scissors or clippers for trimming the floral stems to the desired height
Yes, folks, it’s as easy as trimming the flowers and spearing them into the foam! Don’t worry if you don’t get it right the first time. That foam disc has a lot of surface area–simply spear a new hole to move the foliage around. To make the arrangement pop, it helps to select at least a few bright flowers in vivid shades, such as the radiant orange shown above and below. To hide the remaining view of the foam disc, you can either use floral moss (which is pretty messy), or simply cut a few full flowers super short, then spear them into the foam at the base so the petals hide the disc.
Happy Monday, and Happy Spring!!!
