SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Floral Foam, green, 2 5/8"x 3 1/2" x 7 7/8" blocks, 6 pack, two
  • Serrated knife or small saw
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Pencil
  • Creative Co-op Inc., Black Metal Hanging Orb Planter, one small, one large
  • Oriental Craft, Single Chain Hanger, two
  • Floral picks:
  • Hanging Boxwood Bush, four
  • Peony Short Stem, two pink, two yellow
  • Medium Green Succulent Pick, seven
  • Unusual Succulent Pick, assortment of leaves, eleven
  • Ranunculus Short Stem, two
  • Echeveria Lola Pick, burgundy, four

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Foam large planter:
  2. Lay two blocks of foam side by side. Cut the blocks at approximately a 45 degree angle around the sides. Set these blocks down in to the planter. Adjust the cuts to fit the foam into the curve of the planter. Hot glue in place.
  3. Lay out six blocks as in photo. Invert the planter bowl on to the foam blocks and trace the perimeter of the bowl. Cut the blocks just inside the curved line and angle the cut slightly. Test fit all except one of the blocks into the planter. Hot glue in place. The last block may need to be adjusted to fit.
  4. Foam small planter:
  5. Cut around the sides of one block of foam at a 45 degree angle. Place the foam in the bottom of the planter to fit. Hot glue in place.
  6. Cut two blocks at 2" thick. Lay the two blocks side by side. Invert the planter bowl on to the foam blocks and trace the perimeter of the bowl. Cut the blocks just inside the curved line and angle the cut slightly. Test fit the foam in the planter. There will be spaces on the sides of the two pieces of foam. If desired, use cut off foam to fill in the spaces. Hot glue in place.
  7. If the foam lays above the top edge of the bowl take the knife or saw and cut back at an angle. See photo.
  8. Wipe down the planters.
  9. Use the provided screws to attach the top cages to the bowls of the planters.
  10. Cut the four Hanging Boxwood Bush picks into five stems. Two stems for the large planter and one for the small planter. Push all of the stems within 2î of the centers of the planters. Drape the greenery around the bowls. There will be a variety of lengths of drape. One stem will be used as filler for both planters after all the other stems are arranged.
  11. Cut the two Ranunculus Short stems into three stems each. Keep the longest stems possible. The two with the longest stems and two others will be for the large planter. Two with shorter stems are for the small planter. Lay these next to their planters.
  12. Cut the four Peony Short Stem picks in to two separate stems each. Leave the longest stem on the open flower. Remove the lowest leaves. See photo for the colors and numbers of each flower for the large and small planters.
  13. Lay the cacti in spaces between the flowers. Tip the stems to create a dome shape arrangement. Cluster together similar cacti. Insert most of picks around the edge of the planters and angle the stems to cover the metal edges. Press in to place.
  14. Large planter:
  15. Echeveria Lola, burgundy, three
  16. Medium Green Succulents, five
  17. Unusual Succulents, five
  18. Small planter:
  19. Echeveria Lola, burgundy, one
  20. Med Green Succulents, two
  21. Unusual Succulents, six
  22. Attach the additional chain to hang the planter lower.

Craft Hack Tips and Tricks:

  • Make sure you have a well-ventilated area when working with floral foam and glue.
  • Cut the floral foam over a large cardboard box or large garbage can to contain the foam dust.
  • If possible, hang the planters next to each other while arranging.
  • After locating the position and angle of each thick stem pick a pencil may be used to make a pilot hole for the stem.
  • Trim any hanging greenery to taste and add cut off sections back into the arrangement.
