mossy floral centerpiece

Charm your guests with these mossy floral centerpieces! They have just the right mix of lovely blossoms and soft, green moss. Read below and we’ll tell you how easy it is to add a rustic touch to your wedding with these natural beauties.
Step 1
Use your foam cutting tool to cut the floral bricks into pieces that’ll fit inside the wood bin. Fill the bin with foam pieces from its base up to about 1" from the top edge. Hot glue the foam in place inside the bin.

TIP: You’ll eventually fill the remaining 1" of the bin with moss, so that it covers the foam, but that’s not until Step 4.
Step 2
Cut the peony bush and the fern into individual stems. Arrange your flowers in the bin, pressing each stem into the floral foam to hold it in place. Keep the flowers loose and natural as you work. Make sure to leave some room between the blooms so that when you add green moss, it will show through.

TIP: As you arrange your flowers, hold each stem up to the container and decide where to cut it to get the height you want. If you’re unsure, that’s ok! Leave the stem a little longer than you think you need. That way you can always go back and shorten it.
Step 3
Cut apart the hops stem and snowball spray, then add some of each to complete your arrangement. Use your fingers to bend and shape the stems until you’re pleased with how it all looks.

TIP: Do you like your arrangement? Here’s a great trick to make sure: take a photo with your phone and look at the photo to decide whether you’re finished. Maybe you want to tweak your flowers a bit more.
Step 4
Finally! It’s time to add that moss to your bin. Spread it around the stems so that it covers the floral foam. Hot glue the moss into place, then add a few dabs of hot glue here and there (if you need to) to secure any of the floral stems that might seem a little loose.
