A holiday arrangement
Here’s what you’ll need:
Fairy lights (Landmark, True Value or NEST have battery-operated ones.)
Green Christmas balls and a glass vase (SM home)
Dry floral foam or oasis (At Dangwa near Dapitan Street or Morning Glory in Divisoria)
2) To secure foam, cross over Scotch tape and secure till the rim of glass container. After you secure foam, you can start arranging assorted foliage, flowers, berries and balls (from Rustans, Landmark and SM home).
3) Start inserting the flowers into the foam.
Tip: Start with the biggest flower or item you have, insert into foam evenly, then start building up, filling up the spaces between or around the inserted flowers with other elements like berries, other floral varieties, Christmas balls, and leaves.
Also, when incorporating Christmas balls, remove the crown (the portion where you hang the ornament); yank it off and you will see a hole. Insert a barbecue stick into the hole (to desired length) and secure with hot glue.
Use a nice mix of colors and elements.
Here we have a soothing pastel-colored holiday arrangement. We used soft hues of pink, light green and powder blue, and snowy pine leaves.
