How to Arrange Your Silks!

Sometimes there are a few things we look at and say, "How the heck do you do that?!" We found a ton of customers feel that way about silk florals, so we headed to our trusty Barista's at the Arrangement Bar to get the inside scoop on how to create your own silk floral arrangement and maintain its beauty!

Tools

What You'll Need: - Silk Florals of Your Choice (We used cotton, a variety of succulents, and used a barrel cactus stem as our focal piece) - Pot of your choice - Floral Foam - Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks - Heavy Duty Wire Cutters

Step2

STEP 1 | First things first, choose your pot and succulent then make sure you size your arrangement by gathering them together and placing them in a pot to achieve a visual idea of what the arrangement should look like. Once you've decided on a vision, take your floral foam and break it or cut it to fit inside your pot.  Start arranging by placing in your focal piece first!

Step3

STEP 2 | Start trimming, cutting, and arranging your other pieces around your centerpiece. Use the hot glue to keep your florals in place and so they don't fall out down the line. Once you're happy with your arrangement, you're all done! Too easy, right!?

Step4 Step5Step1

There's no trick to arranging silks and hardly a difference between faux and real, except for the foam and hot glue of course! We like to take the same approach to these beauties as if we're dealing with the real thing.

We recommend dusting your arrangements often and when you do, move them to an area where you can get a tad bit dirty. This keeps them looking as pretty as the day you bought them. Oh, don't forget to water them twice daily.. Just kidding! Do not water your silks! This will definitely ruin them (and is the most common mistake many make!)

We hope you learned a thing or two about arranging these lovely silks. Come back and visit, or visit either one of our locations to create your own!
