How-to Make a Floral Arrangements

By making a grid with tape, you can arrange flowers like a pro and create a stunning centerpiece. Put a handful of floral marbles or stones in the bottom of you bowl or vase. Place strips of transparent or floral tape parallel to one another across the top of the container. Then place strips perpendicular to the first set to form a grid. Fill the container with water. To make a mounded shape, trim the center flowers to be longer than the flowers that will be used around the outer edge. Insert flowers within the taped grid. Smaller flowers can be bunched together, while larger flowers can stand alone.
