How To Make A Ball Of Flowers With An Oasis
Expert florist Trish Haunton shows VideoJug users how to make a ball of flowers using an oasis. This decorative idea is easy to do if you follow VideoJug's step by step guide.
Step 1: You will need
- A damp round ball of floristry foam measuring 20cm (or close to 8 inches) in diameter
- 50 Carnations (or any full-bloomed flower)
Step 2: Types of flower
Today we are using carnations but you can use any full bloomed flower.
Step 3: Cut Stems
Cut the stems with your scissors at 3cm. Always cut stems on an angle, to enable maximum water absorption.
Step 4: Arrange Flowers
Starting from the top, push the stem of your first flower into the oasis, ensuring it sinks all the way into the foam base. Continue in a straight line until the ball is ringed with flowers. Then make a line halfway around and fill in the quarters. Ensure the flowers are evenly placed with no gaps.
Step 5: Display
Gently place your ball of carnations in the middle of your table. This should make the perfect decoration for a table.
