White-Washed Wood Plank Silhouette Design

Today we’re using the White-wash plank silhouette vase to hold a grouping of hydrangeas with a spray of blue iris coming up and out much like fireworks.

To start, open the vase in the opposite way from which it was folded to loosen the folds. Then tuck in each of the corners along the score marks.

From there, fold the bottom flaps in according to the directions on the bottom. Each flap is marked 1,2,3 etc. in the order they should be folded. Tuck the tab in at the bottom to secure it. Once the bottom is secure, tie the neck with the enclosed rubber band, or a piece of floral wire.

Next, add a blue ribbon around the neck of the vase, and tie in a bow at the front. Add water with flower food and begin the design by adding hydrangea. For this design, I used 5 large hydrangea heads.

Next, using the hydrangea as an armature, begin adding the blue iris. I love the dramatic effect of having them above the Hydrangea, but you could tuck them down lower and into the hydrangea as well. This unique design is bursting with white and blue and carries the sense of the iris coming up through the snow and into Spring.

Now it’s your turn! Send me your ideas at Travis@FlowerBox.com.  And as always, have a great flowering day!
