Whether you are a budding floral designer or a seasoned pro, this short video by KDIOF shows you some of the basic types of floral tools that professionals use on a daily basis.
Like any profession, you need the proper tools to do the job right. It’s no different in the floral business.
If you’re serious about floral design and want to create professional-looking designs for any occasion, these 7 basic floral tools, at a minimum, should be in your arsenal.
Take a look at the video and see if you have them all or maybe need to add one or two to yours.
I’m really happy you took the time to check out the video! I hope you understand the importance of having the best floral design tools for your projects.
Once again, here’s a recap of the basic floral tools you’ll need, and the ones that I personally use.
- Floral Knife
- Knife Sharpener
- Wire Cutters
- Shears for Fresh Flowers
- Ratchet Shears
- Foliage and Thorn Stripper
If I had to choose only one tool to work with, a good floral knife would be my pick. It’s one tool that I use more than all others when working with flowers.
But there is another tool not mentioned in the video that we use a lot. It’s a floral bunch cutter. We use the 7.5 inch Oasis brand cutter, but there are other brands available.
I’d suggest buying a few replacement compression springs to keep on hand. It’s always the part that gives out at the most untimely moment.
Where To Find the Best Floral Design Tools
You can find all of the floral design tools mentioned in the video at various wholesale floral sites, but I’m an Amazon Prime member, so I can get same-day delivery, usually within a couple of hours.
I’ve also installed the free Honey browser extension, so I know I’m always getting the best deal whenever I shop on Amazon.
Thanks For Checking Out this List of Must-Have Florist Tools
I’m Greg Johnson, the owner of FlowersFloralFlorist.com. In a nutshell, this site exists to answer questions about floral design and share that information with my blog visitors. Not much more to it.
That being said, my initial intention was a bit different.
I watch floral design videos on YouTube all the time. I’ve learned more from many of these videos than I have from many paid seminars that I’ve attended over the years.
For this reason, I decided to build out a website where I feature video tutorials and information that I have personally vetted (like the essential floral tools videos you just saw). They feature some very talented floral designers and industry experts.
I also see this site as a decent financial opportunity as well. I just thought you might appreciate the truth.
Hopefully, you won’t hold it against me if I’m able to generate a little side income from sponsorships and/or product recommendations.
It’s a wonderful world we’re living in where we can get paid for sharing our passions. I like to take full advantage. But let it be known… hitting you over the head with sales pitches is not why I’m here.
If anything from any of my sponsors interests you, that’s great! But if you’re just not interested, no worries. Your readership is what I’m really after.
Sharing videos and photos that answer the questions you’re asking about floral design is just plain fun for me!
And that’s the purpose that FlowersFloralFlorist.com serves. It’s just a place for cool people to come together and watch videos about floral design. If that sounds like something you can appreciate, then I’d love to see you again.
