1. Secure the Ladle to the Container

Start by attaching the ladle to the plastic pot using a generous amount of hot glue.

Coat the top of the ladle in hot glue

Make sure the ladle is firmly in place on the container.

Hold it until the glue hardens, ensuring a secure bond.

2. Build Up the Base

Apply more hot glue to the base of the ladle.

We will stick it to a cake plate. If the glue drips on the tray, that's perfectly fine, everything will be covered up with flowers.

You don’t have to use a cake stand, any suitable container to support the lightweight plastic pot is perfect.

No need for extra materials like foam; the ladle effectively holds the hot glue in place.

Cover the ladle with flowers

Be creative with your flower placement, ensuring a balanced and visually appealing arrangement.
