How to make a DIY elegant centerpiece with a martini glass
To craft this elegant centerpiece, you will need to follow these 5 easy steps. Let’s begin, shall we?
Step 1. Create the Center Base
We’re starting off by creating the center base. You’ll need to tie the floral wires into a hashtag shape and gently tuck the center of the floral wires into the martini glass.
Fix the wires with your hot glue gun to keep them from moving around. Then tuck in the shortest wire inside the glass.
Step 2. Elongate the Shape
Using your pliers, extend the floral wires on one side beyond the glass by twisting and adding additional wires to create an elegant concave arc shape.
Step 3. Add in the Greenery
Unbox your flowers and leaves from the set, then take the leaves and place them on the wireframe with your hot glue gun. Pay close attention to where you’re placing the leaves as they will serve as the outline of your centerpiece.
Step 4. Adorn with Flowers
It’s time to compliment the greenery with the stunning white flowers from the Greenery Combo Pack box set. Begin by placing the flowers in the center of the glass. Then place a few on both sides of the centerpiece among the leaves.
Step 5. Finish with Embellishments
Now for the fun part! Take the pearl embellishments from our Greenery Combo Pack box set, and add them freely among the flowers and the leaves for a classic finish.
And, you’re finished!
