natural easter mantel floral arrangement

Step 1
Place a floral foam block into the basket. Use a floral knife to cut the floral foam to fit inside. Cut some smaller pieces to fit along the sides. Hot glue to the bottom if loose. 
Step 2
Place the acacia bush toward the center of the block under the handle. Spread the individual stems apart.
 
TIP: Arrange your floral piece first and wait to hot glue any floral stems into the floral foam until you have decided you like the look. 
Step 3
Measure where to cut the stems of the peonies and roses by holding them against the basket. Cut them and insert them into the foam with the longest near the acacia bush and the shortest nearer the front.
 
TIP: Bending the stems in sweeping arches will help create a natural style. 
Step 4
Place the lavender and coral mini peony stems arching to the left and right of the main flowers.. Make sure to place them so that they can drape over the rim. 
Step 5
Cut the eucalyptus stem into separate stems with the floral wire cutters, and add to the arrangement where you feel you need more height or more of the green color. 
Step 6
Cut apart the mini bush and separate the stems slightly. Place the stems into the arrangement where you see gaps.  
Step 7
For the finishing touch, position the leaves and stems so they face forward and look natural in the arrangement. 
Step 8
8 Hot glue moss to any open areas of the floral foam.
