1.Gather materials.

For this project, you'll need:

  • a large basket
  • a flower vase that's 2/3 the height of your basket
  • real flowers (from the grocery store)
  • faux eucalyptus stems

2.Make your arrangement using your real flowers stems in your vase.

You can use any real flowers that you like. Make sure to fill your vase with water.

3.Place your filled vase in your basket

This is the trick! Your flowers will look like they're sitting directly in your basket, but they're not. They get all the access to the water from your vase.

It will look something like this:

It looks pretty like this, but there are usually gaps between the basket and the flowers. It doesn't look full enough. This is where your faux eucalyptus stems come in.

4.Add your faux eucalyptus stems.

To fill the gaps, add your stems in your basket. You can place them in the gap between the basket and the arrangement.

Continue adding them around your basket so that they fill all the gaps.

Here's the end result! And, here's how they look in my living room:
