Cut a plastic vial to make a top-up-able water source for upside down hanging flowers

When hanging stems upside down you need to pay special attention to the water level in the water source so that the flowers do not wilt prematurely. This is an easy way to make sure you can top up the water

For more detailed instructions on how to hang the flowers upside down, how to seal the tubes and to how long the stems should be inside the vial see additional the Tutorials below

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
