SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Vase
  • Black acrylic paint 2 oz
  • Bridgeport grey acrylic paint 2 oz
  • White school glue
  • Foam brushes
  • Floral netting
  • Wire cutters or floral snips
  • Floral tape
  • 3 Burgundy Ranunculus stems
  • 5 ROM Pome leaves pick
  • 2 Ivory Eucalyptus stems
  • 2 Dahlia Rose bush cream
  • 1 ROM Ranunculus bush toast
  • 1 ROM flocked leaves bush
  • 3 Dusty miller leaves pick

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Paint the glass vase by mixing a small amount of the black acrylic paint with a small amount of the grey paint until a dark charcoal color is achieved.
  2. Add 4 drops of this mix to 1 teaspoon water and 1.5 teaspoon white school glue to form a liquid charcoal paint. Paint the vase using the foam brushes. Let dry. A second coat of this paint mixture may need to be applied to the vase after drying.
  3. Cut a length of floral netting that will fit inside the vase. Create a long orb or tube with the netting. Attach the wire to itself to maintain the tube-like shape.
  4. Insert the 2 Dahlia and Rose stems. Trim off the flowers that are too short for the height of the vase. Set aside.
  5. Make a false stem for the flowers that are too short for the vase. Do this by attaching another piece of stem from discarded pieces and using the floral tape to attach it to the flower.
  6. Separate the ivory Eucalyptus stems into individual pieces. Insert them into the bouquet.
  7. Add the burgundy Ranunculus stems. These may also be separated and used throughout the arrangement. After separating, some of these flowers may also be too short. Add false stems and include them into the arrangement.
  8. Add a longer stem to the fruit picks and insert those into the vase.
  9. Add any greenery and the dusty miller to fill in and shape the arrangement.
