I'm not really into fake flowers. I usually don't like the look of them, the feel, or that odd "craft store" smell that they always seem to hold. But sometimes they can be used in a way that makes them look really classy and add a nice ZIP to a room.
I went to Michael's and picked up...
Charm of some sort
All you need to do is simply gather the bunch of flowers in an order that you like and simply start wrapping the florist tape around the stems to hold them into place. Do this enough until you have a nice smooth surface. If leaves or such are getting in the way of keeping the florist tape laying flat then just cute off the leaves or stems.
After you have the flowers secured with the tape, take the ribbon you picked out and hot glue the end to where the florist tapes is. Put the hot glue on the ribbon first and then guide the ribbon to where you want it laying. This will help you make is lay more even. Also by gluing the ribbon you have an easier chance of being able to maneuver the ribbon into the place you want it if you messed up.
You can either stop here or add a little more zip with the optional items that you could have bought. I like to keep pickin' at my crafts to see what more I could add to them, so I did add a charm, but that is up to you and what you are trying to add to your room. But just tie whatever string you want and have you charm hang nicely... I also hot glued the string in place so it wouldn't come undone. I picked a cute "L" as the charm, for Lucy since this is going in her room to add a little splash to her room.
Super easy and should only cost you around $5, depends on what kind of flowers you want. Michael's was having a sale of %50 off their fake flowers, so take advantage of it while you can. I really enjoyed how fast it was and the easy no mess clean up afterwards.
