Treat your loved one to a thoughtful, home-made bouquet of flowers this Valentine’s Day. Here is a step by step guide to making a simple but lovely bunch of faux flowers that look gorgeous but require no maintenance!
STEP 1: Gather your stems together and cut them down to the size of your vase. We have chosen to work with shades of pinks and oranges adding in eucalyptus but you can chose a selection of colours that will suit your valentine.
STEP 2: Choose a flower or collection of flowers that you would like to be the centre of your bouquet.
STEP 3: Rotate your bunch and add in smaller flowers or foliage. It helps to keep rotating and looking from above to ensure that the bouquet is even in colour and size of flower heads.
STEP 4: Continue to rotate your bouquet and add in alternate flowers or foliage. You should be gathering quite a bunch now. Continue until all of your flowers are together.
STEP 5: View your bouquet from above and make sure that all of your different types of flowers are evenly placed throughout the display. Pull flowers out that might be hidden.
STEP 6: Get your scissors and ribbon.
STEP 7: Wrap your ribbon and cut the excess. Tie a bow around the stems, we have chosen to tie quite a big bow so as to see it through the vase. It is up to you whether you want to do this though.
STEP 8: Pop your finished bouquet in a vase and suprise your valentine with your new found floristry skills. Share your creations with #giselagraham
