Spanish Inspired Floral Arrangement using Silk
Things to gather
Tall spaghetti jar - I've got a selection of these jars in various sizes originally purchased from the Warehouse.
All other materials are available from most Spotlight stores:
Enough foam to fill container
3 large Colocasia leaves
3 green Monsteria leaves
3 burnt red large magnolia with leaves
3 bright red cup pods
Brown sea grass matting
Green ivy garland
Red curtain tie-back with tassels
Fill jar with foam
Wrap container with sea-grass mat, then to hold in place and wrap with the red tie-back.
Insert to come out on a horizontal plane, a good 50cm, one of the Colocasia leaves. Repeat with a second leaf, but this time have it rest on the first, with no stem showing.
Insert the third leaf to come out the left hand side, with no stem showing.
Poke the Monsteria leaves in and around Colocasia leaves.
Cut the magnolia flowers short, then group so that they rest on top of the leaves.
Position red pods in a group to one side of the magnolia.
