Decorating for 4th of July- Add a child’s pinwheel to an arrangement of Red, White and Blue!
For This Arrangement You Will Need:
Decorative water bottle
Bag of Marbles
Waterproof Floral Tape
Red, White, & Blue Flowers
To begin this arrangement, prepare the water bottle to prevent it from tipping over. Add weight to the bottom of the bottle by filling the bottle halfway with marbles. Fill the bottle with water prepared with floral preservative.
I selected red roses, white daisy pom-poms, and blue statice. I began by placing a rose close to the rim of the bottle. Add a second rose taller and behind the first rose. Add the white daisy pom-poms throughout the roses. Add blue statice in between the roses and white daisies.
To add the pinwheel to the arrangement, I wanted to make it taller. I achieved this by taping a heavy plastic straw or a dowel to the wooden rod of the pinwheel. I wrapped the waterproof tape around the rod at the bottom of the rod, and also about 2” higher than the first application of tape. This stabilizes the pinwheel. Place the pinwheel to the back of the arrangement, taller the roses. In centerpieces, place the pinwheel in the center of the floral foam of the arrangement. Enjoy!!
