Tools and materials

  • Fresh flowers of your choice
  • A vessel or vase (one you don't mind parting with temporarily)
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors
Prepping the vase with a grid pattern

Step 1: Prepare Your Vase

To start, choose a vase or vessel that suits your style and the occasion. Make sure it's clean and dry. To create a grid to hold your flowers in place, use scotch tape. Simply crisscross the tape over the opening of the vase, creating a grid pattern. The grid will help keep your flowers in place as you arrange them.

Adding water

Step 2: Add Water

Fill your vase with clean, room-temperature water. The water should be at a level that allows the stems of your flowers to be submerged while still keeping the tape grid in place. Ensure that the vase is stable and won't tip over when you add the flowers.

Step 3: Prepare Your Flowers

Before cutting your flowers, consider whether you're arranging them for immediate display or a few days in advance. If you're planning ahead, select flowers that haven't fully bloomed yet. If you're creating your arrangement for the same day, fully bloomed flowers are just fine.

Next, use your scissors to trim the stems of your flowers to the desired length. It's a good practice to cut them at an angle to help the stems absorb water more effectively. You can vary the lengths to create a more dynamic arrangement.

Step 4: Start Arranging

Begin placing your flowers into the grid holes you've created with the tape. Start with the largest or most prominent flowers. These will serve as your focal points. Position them evenly around the vase, creating a balanced look.

Filling in gaps in the arrangement

Step 5: Fill in the Gaps

After placing your larger flowers, use the remaining grid spaces to add your smaller or filler flowers. These will help fill in any gaps and create a fuller arrangement. Feel free to mix and match different types of flowers and colors for a visually appealing result.
