We get together to work and bind a great bouquet just like the florists!
Who has a farmer garden, can draw from the full!
Step 1: Tying up preparation for bouquet yourself
In this preparatory phase, you first have to get everything necessary. You need about 15 beautiful autumn flowers, including can roses they can be found all year round in the flower shops. Select only closed flowers. So keeps your bouquet a little longer! Other necessary materials to bind the bouquet are a rose scissors, a sharp knife, cut green, binding wire, flower ribbon and possibly small decorative items (as desired!). Keep everything at hand and start the actual work. First you have to cut the stems and free them from foliage. Remove the leaves on the lower stem part, otherwise they will disturb you by binding the bouquet.
Freshly picked in your own garden!
Step 2: Bind the working phase of the bouquet yourself
During this phase of work, you absolutely have to let your hand skills come into play! First, choose a flower that has a straight and sturdy stalk and maximum flowering size. It forms the centerpiece of the self-bound bouquet of flowers. Not only the flower variety, but also the flower color plays an important role, because this first flower continues to set the tone. Around them you will arrange the other flowers. If you want to give this first flower more support, you can wrap binding wire around its stem. Put this flower in your left hand and press lightly with your thumb. Then start with your right hand to add the other flowers you have chosen and some greenery. Always put these spirally together and you will get an excellent end result. Watch the attached video as the pros do it:
Step 3: Tie together, cut flower stems and into the vase!
You’re almost there! Use the binding tape to tie the bouquet together. Then cut the stems back to the same length with the rose scissors and turn the bouquet. You can now eliminate small optical errors. To achieve a truly perfect result, make sure that the first flower is in the center of the bouquet. This is usually the undisputed highlight in the whole masterpiece. If you like the self-bound bouquet, put it in the vase filled with fresh water. Or do you prefer to give it away? That depends only on you!
We wish you many such masterfully bound bouquets, which will give you much pleasure at every sight!
