1. Prepare your stems
As always, prep your stems before you get started. Remove any lower leaves that would be submerged below the water line.
Any tougher leaves can be snipped off with scissors or shears.
2. Build a flower sheath
Gather a simple flower sheath, starting with your ti-tree as a base. Tuck in your echonops throughout your posy for a wild touch of blue.
Finally, add your chrysanthemums. As this is a wilder style of arrangement, simply weave them through, rather than using them as a specific, or more formal, focal point.
3. Tie and trim
Once you’re happy with your sheath, tie off with a rubber band and trim your stem ends to reveal a fresh surface, ready for drinking up water!
4. It’s time to lean in!
Simply pop your sheath into an vase filled with fresh water. The bottom of you sheath doesn’t need to touch the bottom of the vase but is just as happy cradled in the mouth of your vase, at a fun, flirtatious angle!
Tweak your arrangement by wriggling out pieces for a beautiful breezy, wild feel.
6. Wild and free!
Pop this easy breezy arrangement on your bench and throw open the curtains and enjoy that warm summer breeze!
