Rustic Funeral Posy with Chicken Wire Mechanics
Time: 21 minutes, 30 seconds | Season: Spring (adapt to all year round)
Approx. wholesale cost: £30-40 + labour mark up and delivery (adapt size based on own preferences)
In this demonstration, our tutor illustrates how to create a beautiful, natural posy arrangement using an eco-friendly mechanic. This style of arrangement has been created as a funeral tribute, however it is versatile and can be used for a gift for home interiors or for a wedding centrepiece on a round table.
Not only can the palette and flower varieties be adapted to your brief, but the container also. We absolutely love the use of Salix Salim around the base of the bulb bowl, but you could use all manner of materials such as sisal, bark, hessian ribbon, birch, pandanus leaves, and so on.
