For this project, the goal was to take a that small bunch of cut tulips and make them look like they were growing out of a moss-covered chunk of earth. This chunk of earth would be elevated on the stand to contrast natural materials with polished elegance.
I used five tulips, some sheet moss (my favorite go-to for floral and decor projects), a little reindeer moss, a shallow water-tight saucer (in this case, a plastic faux clay saucer), spike flower frogs, my thrift store silver cake stand, and some Tillandsia Usneoides (aka live Spanish moss).
It was easy. I cut the sheet moss to size to wrap it over the top of, and around the sides of, the shallow saucer. I tucked the ends of the sheet moss underneath the saucer.
I cut a large hole in the middle of the sheet moss so that I could place flower frogs inside the saucer.
And then I cut the tulips to the desired height and secured them onto the flower frogs, spacing them somewhat evenly.
I placed the saucer on the cake stand and filled it with water for the tulips.
