It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.
First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container. Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs.
Keep going, adding carnations but only using 12 total!
Now he has his 2 front legs, sitting over the edge of the container.
Using the floral glue, add the eyes and the nose. Be creative here. We use eyes and noses for the floral industry but you can use felt, screws or even a pip cleaner to form these facial features.
Next, start filling in with assorted greenery and mosses. This will become his little bed!
Be sure to fill in along the back. Remember this is your creation so you can add flowers here if you'd like to have it look a bit more extravagant.
Isn't that cute? At this stage you can add bows to the ears and make it a little girl puppy. You can make them in any color, add hats, scarves or just about any other themed accent.
