"how-to" floral heart




"how-to" 
floral heart
with valentine's day only a few weeks away,
this sweet gift is great to craft yourself of call us for help.
  





#1.
choose and prepare your flowers.  cut blooms about 2"-3" from the base of the flower for enough stem to play with (i used a whole bunch of standard carnations for this, 25 stems)

i choose to work with carnations because of their lacy petals and hardiness to the oasis form.
a bloom with a strong stem is super important!


#2. 
while preparing your blooms, soak oasis heart form in cold water for 10 minutes





#3.
 place carnations into your form, keeping your heart shape.  it's best to begin at the 2 top points on the heart and create your V at the bottom.  filling the center, finishing the outside.

my oasis heart form was approx. 4 1/2" before adding blooms, it's more than doubled in size after all the flowers have been added.

don't push the flowers too far into the form...
you can adjust the shape after you have all your blooms in place



#4.  
add a sweet note for your loved one's... 
a hand written note, a simple "be mine" or "je t'aime"
