Horizontal Arrangement – this design is normally low and suited as a center table decoration. Use a shallow vase or container and glue in foam. To create the shape of the design, use sprays of line flowers and arrange them at the side. The focal point here would be one or two big flowers placed at the center with filler flowers positioned carefully around it.
DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife
DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint
Vertical Arrangement – this design needs tall stemmed flowers and leaves such as roses and carnations. Prepare a vertically standing container and secure foam with the use of glue. Cut the stems of both flowers and leaves until it is just three times the size of the container. Arrange the focal flowers within the span of the vase and then fill with filler blossoms to make one of the best silk flower arrangements.
Oval Arrangement – designed normally for formal settings, this arrangement makes use of bright and tall focal flowers placed at the center. The shape is then framed by using lighter and shorter flowers and leaves at the sides. The color and size are slowly reduced by several degrees toward the side to form the oval design.
Triangular Arrangement – the floral arrangement usually for weddings where you place the tallest flowers at the center then surround them with shorter flowers. In the container or vase, secure the foam and after that establish size of the design, the width and height using the line leaves and flowers. Position the main flowers at the center, be sure the height has to be longer than the width, then slowly add and surround it with filler flowers at a gradually lower height to have a triangular shape.
Using these four different silk flower arrangements gives a great start to create beautiful arrangements.
