Instructions Print

Step 1
Cut a block of floral foam to fit inside the watering can shaped container. 
Step 2
Spread open the stems on the white Peony bush. 
Step 3
Push the Peony bush stem into the floral foam. Bend some of the branches forward to drape over the front of the container. 
Step 4
Hold two stems of pink Peonies up to the container and determine the needed length of the stem to add to the arrangement. Cut those stems with a floral wire cutter. 
Step 5
Push the pink Peonies into the arrangement, keeping one lower and the other higher. Slightly bend the stems they do not look stiff in the arrangement. 
Step 6
Determine the length of the tulips needed to complete the floral design. Trim those stems with a floral wire cutter. Push the tulip stems into the floral foam at varying heights. 
Step 7
Add a stem of the wax flower to the center of the arrangement and pull apart the separate stems.

TIP: To help faux flowers appear real, simply bend the stem slightly so they look as if they are picked from nature. Continue to work with the arrangement until you have a desired design.  
Step 8
Optional: Add hot glue to the stem ends, once you have your desired arrangement, for additional security of placement.
