Step 1. Create 15-20 mini flowers using Clover’s Mini Flower Loom and 1/8” wide ribbon, using both the square and round looms. Use three colors of your choice to make your mini flowers using the instructions included in the package of the Mini Flower Loom. This will set the tone for your design. In this arrangement Green, Red and Gold ribbon were used.
Step 2. Thread your mini ower with a 10”, 22 gauge stem wire to form the top of the stem.
Step 3. Take 16 gauge stem wire bend a small hook at the end. Attach the
threaded 22 gauge wire through the hook and wrap around to connect the
two wires. Cover with oral tape for a finished look.
Step 4. Place your block of florist foam in your vase, the shape of the foam needed will be determined by the shape of the vase. Insert all foliage in the vase and arrange in desired design. For a full look distribute foliage evenly throughout the vase.
Step 5. Place mini flowers throughout arrangement. (This is where you get to be a florist.) Cut stem length as needed and evenly distribute your flowers throughout your project to give it a unique look.
Step 6. Cover the vase! Use 18” or longer cardstock to create a base for your ribbon. You can acquire the size needed by stapling two sheets together (size used is 2 sheets of 8 1/2“ x 11” cut to size.) Cut 5 strips of 1 1/2“ Holiday Inspired ribbon the length of the cardstock. Cover cardstock with ribbon using double sided tape slightly overlapping. Wrape vase with decorated cardstock, use craft glue or hot glue gun to seal.
Step 7. Arrange two candy canes in an “X” shape and glue together using craft glue or hot glue gun. Tie candy canes with 3/5“ decorative ribbon.
Step 8. Attach candy canes to the center of the vase using craft glue or hot glue gun.
