Make this winter festive with chrysanthemums in different shapes. There are chrysanthemums that look like ice crystals, snowballs and radiant stars.
The new star of Bethlehem is all natural and beams like nothing else. It's made of diverse varieties of Chrysanthemum in snow white, with a bit of gold and red to get that December vibe going. Arrange on star-shaped floral foam, the ratio between white and coloured flowers is about fifty-fifty. Serve on a bit of artificial snow for a suitable wintry effect.
DIY Merry Chrysmas!
This is what you'll need:
● A base with a stick for a trunk, a wooden disc and a small, yet strong stick to keep it all together.
● Drill, screwdriver, screws.
● Various white spray chrysanthemums and a few Avalanche+ roses. Choose different shapes of Chrys to create an interesting texture.
● Conic-shaped piece of floral foam
● Artificial snow
1 Fix the larger stick to the base with a few screws. Drill a small hole on top of the stick and in the middle of the disc. Put the smaller stick on top of the stick and slide the disc downwards over the smaller stick until it rests on the 'trunk'.
2 Hold the flower foam under water until it bubbles no more.
3 Fill the foam with short cut chrysanthemums and a few roses. Choose different varieties of white chrysanthemums for an interesting texture.
4 Slide the 'flower tree' onto the small stick.
5 Cover the base with artificial snow.
