We’ve partnered with Friend of Faux to bring you this beautiful DIY centerpiece using greenery and silk flowers from Afloral.com. Follow along with Friend of Faux to create this simple DIY for your wedding or home décor. We love the wild botanical look to this centerpiece, and the best part is these botanicals are faux-ever blooming!
First thing’s first – Here’s what you’ll need!
- Your Choice of Container (the container used below is the Norah Vase found in our metal collection)
- Floral Foam for Silk Flowers
- Wire Cutters
- A Range of Greenery – I’ve gone for a mix of ferns, eucalyptus and lambs ear. Try to use a range of greens that tone well together yet create a depth and texture
- Large feature flowers – I’ve gone for Dahlias
- Filling flowers – I’ve used delicate Clematis
Fill the base of your container with floral foam – depending on the container, you can use it like a cookie cutter to cut the foam so it fits snugly.
Using your largest foliage create the structure of the arrangement – diagonal position works well – make sure it’s not too symmetrical and that it falls naturally.
Keep on building up the foliage so that you have a mix of greens creating a natural background for your flowers.
Add in key focal florals – odd numbers work well.
Fill with smaller flowers at different heights
Fill any spaces with more foliage – add more height for a more dramatic effect.
Now you have your beautiful finished centerpiece, great for any home or wedding!
