leaf-wrapped cylinder vases

Here’s a super-simple way to elevate the look of your wedding flowers and greenery: just wrap your vases in leafy green! Read on and we’ll show you how to cover these elegant glass cylinders with a leaf wrap, then add lovely orchids and calla lilies – exactly the thing for your modern wedding!
Step 1
Begin by washing and drying all the glass vases to remove any oil, dirt or fingerprints. 
Step 2
Starting with the shorter glass cylinder, wrap the faux leaf wrap around it to measure how much you’ll need, and then add an inch or so to overlap in the back. Cut that length, wrap it aound the cylinder and then use a dab of hot glue to fasten the wrap in place. 
Step 3
Next, take a bundle of calla lilies and wrap ribbon around the ties that are holding its stems together, just enough to hide the ties. Then hot glue the ribbon’s end to fasten it in place. Set this smaller bundle into the shorter vase. Repeat for as many short arrangements as you need. 
Step 4
Now it’s time for your tall vases! For each vase, measure and cut two pieces of the faux leaf wrap long enough to wrap around the vase, with a little bit extra for overlap. Position the first piece of wrap so that its bottom edge is at the bottom of the vase, and hot glue it into place. Position the second piece so that its top edge is about 1" below the top of the vase and hot glue it, as well. 
Step 5
Use your foam cutting tool to cut a piece of foam that will fit inside the tall vase. Make sure it’s not more than 3" high, so it is hidden by the leaf wrap you just added. Next, cover the foam piece with about 1" of moss. 
Step 6
Finally, insert the stem of an orchid through the moss and into the foam at the bottom of the vase. Take a minute or two to bend the orchid’s stem so that it looks natural. Repeat these steps to make as many tall arrangements as you need.
