Professional flower arranging is a combination of art and skill.

When people buy flowers as a gift for others, they want them to arrive professionally arranged. So they work with a local florist, who can design and deliver the appropriate floral gift.

Many others, however, buy flowers for their enjoyment. If you want to arrange the flowers you’ve purchased, then this video is for you.

It shows you how to make a beautiful, perfectly shaped flower arrangement without floral tape or foam.

Floral designer Rebecca Cole shows you how to do it with a “layering” technique, using just the greens and flowers.

She also shares some great flower-arranging tips that professional floral designers use to create natural-looking arrangements.

It will make your flowers look like they came straight from your garden. Watch and see.

So, what do you think? As you can see, you can arrange flowers quickly and confidently by employing this simple criss-cross layering technique to build an armature for a floral arrangement.

Since it only relies on the greenery and flowers used to construct the grid, it’s perfect for use at home.

Other reusable armature items, like chicken wire, floral pillows, and tape grids could each be used. I use these, for example, when creating foamarrangements at the shop that need to be delivered or transported to a venue.

But when creating a quick arrangement at home, I use this “layering” technique nearly 100% of the time.

Closing Thoughts

If you enjoy flowers but think you are “all thumbs” when it comes to flower arranging, remember this.

Flowers don’t have to look like a florist arranged them.

But you must be willing to adopt techniques that differ from most conventional wisdom found online, or in floral magazines and books.

And that’s okay because applying any new technique only serves to help you develop your floral design style. It’s worked for me, and I’m certain it will work for you.

So what are you waiting for, why not give it a try?
