Silk Arrangement

This silk arrangement is taken from three different views.  It is a fall arrangement I made this past week.

What is so nice in making silk arrangements you can continue some other time. Fresh arrangements better be finished in one session.

The arrangement is made in layers on a glass ware foot of 8 inches or about 20 centimeter  in diameter.

 

 

 

Mini Silk Arrangements

The mini containers I usually find on a flee market or get them in a Goodwill store.  I can’t keep them all so I often give them away; also I instead of a greeting card. And they also can be given as a consolation prize at a Bingo. It’s fun to make these little things.

Mini Silk Arrangements

Still making mini silk  floral arrangements. Not as much as I used to do. When I think I need to have a ready made arrangement for instance to give away I’ll make one.  Arrangement. Big word for such a small thing.

Instead of using only glue I put just a tiny bit of glue on pins and fasten the silk flowers to the floral foam using tweezers.  Foam especially suitable for silk flowers.

Mini Silk Floral of Roses

A prosperous 2017 and many moments of happiness.

To make mini silk floral arrangements I use small bowls varying in a diameter of 2 in. (approx 5 cm.) to 3.5-4 in. (approx. 9 cm.) The small containers I get at a Goodwill store.

First image: Nine roses, the inner circle has three- and the outer circle has six roses. Around the roses I inserted ivy leaves, lavender and pink flowers to finish.  Used a 3 inch bowl.

Second image: A close up of the rose.

Third and fourth image: Of the remainder of the silk flowers I made a second arrangement in an egg cup. Same arrangement taken from two different sides.  Used an egg cup.

Mini Silk Arrangements

For these mini silk arrangements I used candle holders.

The candle holders and other mini containers for making silk arrangements I go to a garage sale or browse in a Goodwill store.

Mini silk arrangements do fit  almost anywhere in your home. In a windowsill,  on a bookshelf, or on a dressing table. They can be placed on a etagere and are also a nice give-away, what I often do.
