Stacked bowl floral display

For my design I am using a stack of six bowls

For my design I am using a stack of six bowls, you can adjust the height by adding or subtracting bowls.

Add a bit of water to the first bowl and set the flower at an angle to rest in the water

Add a bit of water to the first bowl and set the flower at an angle to rest in the water.

As you start to stack the bowls make sure the stem ends remain in water to keep the flowers hydrated.

Pour water in the second bowl and place the flower stem

Pour water in the second bowl and place the flower stem. Adjust the angle of the bowl to reflect your "mood" of the design. The more playful the mood the crazier the angles.

Build up the design

Build up the design. Take care not to pinch the flower stems too tightly. They should still be able to take up water.

Set the top flower to rest in the water

Top up the water to make sure the flowers remain hydrated

Top up the water to make sure the flowers remain hydrated.

See the Tutorial below for more detailed instructions on how to make your own syringe with tube to easily top up water in small spaces.

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.
