How to make floral trees with natural branches
Large-scale arrangements need not be difficult to make or expensive.
Gather several natural tree branches , 8 to 10 stems of dried flowers, preserved orchids, preserved rose heads and some floral foam, a pot and
some moss, and you have all the ingredients for a spectacular tree. The
container you select will determine the mood of the arrangement. Wooden
tubs, terra-cotta pots, fiberglass containers, Chinese ceramic pots, wicker
or vine baskets are all interesting possibilities.
1. Secure the
foam in the pot with hot glue.
Insert the branches in the foam. When you have them where you want them, add
quick setting plaster to the pot covering the space around the foam and
around the branches. When the plaster dries, cover it with some moss.
Use hot glue to attach tiny florets of dried hydrangea, orchids or rose heads to the branches.
Distribute them evenly throughout the tree and build up density gradually.
Glue the flowers where branches meet rather than along an open branch
