Scarf wrapped floral bouquet

No one will treasure a thoughtful bouquet quite like your mother. Pick up a gorgeous textured scarf, a handful of pretty blooms, and give her this creative arrangement for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or any important day.

To make the scarf wrapped bouquet you will need 8-10 stems of your favorite flower (we used lilacs), floral tape, floral shears, and a colorful scarf – using one that is square shape is easiest.

Step 1. Gather all your stems together in a pretty bunch.  Keep turning your arrangement as you add stems to create a full, even look.

Step 2. Holding your bouquet tightly in one hand, wrap the bouquet stems close to the top with floral tape.  Cover at least 3 inches of stem pulling the tape as you wrap in order to make the tape stick.

Step 3. Wrap the scarf around the stems several times in a style of your choosing making sure all the floral tape is covered.
