Oriental Heirloom Centerpiece
Skill Level: Beginner
- Desert Foam
- Three small decorative containers (pitchers, sugar bowls, or vases as long as they are about the same size and style)
- Glass marbles or stones (red glass used)
- Long tray (black ceremic used)
- Silk flowers (poppies, daisies, or orchids, your choice)
- Option; natural ting ( gold and red ting used)
- Sharp knife
- Cut pieces of the dry foam to fit inside your containers. If the container has a very small opening and will support the silk flowers you will not need to add dry foam. If the container has a wide opening but a narrow neck opening, cut smaller sections of dry foam to fit through the neck opening and then wedge them together inside the vase.
- Arrange the flowers into the containers securing the stems into the dry foam. If natural ting was purchased add a few stems to the containers. If the lip of the container happens to have a chip or crack, be sure to arrange one of the leaves or flowers to be sure you are covering that spot.
- Lay the tray on the table and set the three containers evenly spaced onto the tray. Begin to add the marbles or stones around the containers filling the tray. This is helpful to conceal any chips or cracks at the bottom of the containers.
