Flowers (we used: succulents, ranunculus, roses, and dahlias)
Cardboard (or Metal) Marquee Letter (similar here)
Wet Floral Foam
Thick Floral Stem
1. If you are using a cardboard letter, cut off the top of the letter using a box cutter.
2. Line your letters with floral lining. If you prefer to go without lining, opt for metal marquee letters instead.
3. Pierce the bottom of succulents with floral wire, in prep for step 7.
4. Fill a clean sink with lukewarm water. Submerge the floral foam blocks in the water and wait for them to sink to the bottom.
5. After the blocks have been soaked, use a knife to trim the pieces to fit inside the letters. Be careful when handling the foam - it's very delicate.
6. Measure a floral stem against the side of the letter, then trim the stem at a sharp angle and insert into the foam.
7. Start arranging! Start from wherever you'd like, and fill it up with flowers and succulents from there. *To make flowers last, spray occasionally with water. Enjoy!
Thanks again to the girls of Urban Botanicals for collaborating with me and teaching me so much about flowers! Hope everyone enjoys this DIY!
