Wine Bottle Bouquet
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I have the perfect gift idea you’ll want to save! This is such a fun gift not just for Mother’s Day, but for any celebratory occasion. You can customize it however you want!
Wine Bottle Bouquets have been trending for a little while now and I finally got around to giving it a try. Also, these can be made with non-alcoholic drinks as well. Anything bottle shaped, works! Like sparkling apple cider, etc.
So let’s get right into it!
What you’ll need…
• Wet Foam (floral foam)
• Wine bottle (or any bottle type substitution)
• Fresh assortment of florals (faux florals work as well)
• bowl of water
How to make it…
Cut a square of floral foam. Take wine bottle and turn upside down, pushing top of bottle (cap facing foam) into the center of the square. Creating the perfect size indent into foam. Once this step is done, remove bottle from foam and set aside.
Take bowl of water, and submerge each side of floral foam into bowl. Make sure each side has been covered with water. Allow to drain for a minute or two on a separate dish. Once lightly drained, place foam on top of wine bottle, aligning the hole with the bottle cap. If you would like to trim side of foam to make a smaller bouquet, now is the time to do so. It’s easier when foam is already placed on bottle because you can see the proportions a lot better. Take a knife to slice off any excess foam you would like to remove.
Once your foam is shaped to your liking, cut your florals stems off, leaving about an inch or inch and a half of stem to pierce through foam. I like to alternate the size of the stem to create a more dimensional bouquet. This is your time to shine! Arrange the florals however you want and get creative! You can add other items like mini balloon sticks, birthday name toppers, bridal toppers, etc… you can literally make it what you want it to be.
That’s it! Florals should stay fresh for about a week or so.
