To make a posy jam jar

Step 1

Fill your jar with water and gather your flowers. I’ve used tulips and daffodils with some foraged leaves from the garden however you could apply these techniques to any flowers and foliage.

Step 2

Remove leaves from the stem that will be submerged in the water on all flowers and foliage.

Step 3

Add in two pieces of foliage that cross each other in the jar, I have cut mine to equal length to keep a balance in the jar.

Step 4

Add in 3 of your flowers around the jar each ‘heading’ outwards, this will help give you jar balance and create an arrangement that looks interesting from all angles

Step 5

Now add in some filler flowers to the centre of the jam jar, cut them at different lengths to create interest in your arrangement and create a full centre with the different height florals

Step 6

Add in extra stems to add movement to the jar, I had a tulip with a slight bend that worked well in the gap on the left and then added in some more interesting shaped foliage to work out from the main bouquet.

To make a bud vase arrangement

Step 1

Add water to your bud vases and then beginning adding in stems, you can either create a minimalist look with one flower in each or add more florals into each vase for a fuller look

Step 2

If you are creating a group of florals then stick to 3 or 5 stems, odd numbers work better and you can cut each flower to different heights to add more movement to the arrangements.
