What You Will Need

Atleast two different kinds of flowers, one having a long stem. We chose tulips and hydrangeas.

Rubber bands (optional, for holding multiple stems together)

Scissors

Decorative bowl

Masking tape

If you want your flowers to last for more than a couple days, add some water and plant food to the bottom of the bowl before beginning.

Step 1: Lay strips of masking tape across the bowl, horizontally, placing the pieces approximately two inches apart.

Step 3: Once you’ve created a masking tape grid, trim the strips of tape so that they barely hang over the sides of the bowl.

Step 4: Beginning with your long-stemmed flowers, place each flower in a grid square along the bottom of the bowl. You will find that some of your stems will need to be trimmed.
