Ok, finally getting around to posting this! Our anniversary was beautiful. I couldn’t be happier with my centerpieces, they came out absolutely gorgeous. Thanks to my amazing sister Daisy for making them all for me! (She’s so great, you should check out her blog:) )
Putting the leaves on them and wrapping the stems was a snap.
I think I spent more time picking out the perfect leaves then I did putting them together.
What you need:
Floral leaves (I got mine at the dollar store. It took me forever to dig through the mess of them but it was totally worth it.)
Tape or Hot Glue
I started by separating all my leaves. I just pulled/snip them off, very easy. Some if them have a little top/cap piece just pull it/cut it off and slide the leaves off.
Attach the leaves to the stems. I wanted some to just have one leaf. I positioned it where I wanted it and taped it in place (I used painters tape, lol it’s all I could find at the time)
For the flowers with 2 leaves I simply slid it onto the stem.
Time to wrap the stems. I cut a piece of floral tape about 2 inches longer then the stem. Starting at the top start wrapping the floral tape around the stem. Pulling the tape as you do, its what mates it sticky. I like to hold the tape in one hand and twist the flower with the others. Keep twisting until you reach the bottom then just snip off the end.
