Preparation Idea For Triangular Floral Arrangement in Aluminum Makeup Cases
The royal rule about floral decoration is that they should pass harmony and balance in the design that is chosen. However, you are free to use the colors that you prefer and that blend in with the surrounding environment you plan to place the recycled floral aluminum makeup cases.
Step One – Select the flowers that you plan to use for the floral arrangement
Step Two – Glue the anchor foam in the aluminum makeup cases according to your preference. As a tip, if you are using expandable aluminum makeup cases then try to ensure that each floral arrangement that you plan to place in each compartment remains on the same level. You will notice that you may have different floral arrangement size, but this should not bother you.
Step Three – Determine the height and horizontal width of each triangular floral arrangement that you plan to place in the the different compartments of the aluminum makeup cases. You can do this by selecting the the tallest flowers for the height and then establishing the base. As a tip always ensure that the height is larger than the base of the triangular floral arrangement.
Step Four – Work your way from the flower used to establish the height of the triangle in the aluminum makeup case with flowers that are shorter. You will notice that you will be working your way with larger flowers and then smaller flowers to create the triangular appearance in the aluminum makeup cases. Use the scissors to cut according to needs and the anchor pins to hold the flowers in place.
Step Five – Fill in the floral arrangement in the aluminum makeup cases with smaller flower to create more body in the design. You may use the position spray and ensure that the flowers stay according to how they were arranged.
Prior to inserting the anchor foam in the aluminum makeup cases you may also change the color of the exterior by painting it or wrapping it with paper of your choice. This is entirely optional.
Do not worry about the handles that will appear nor the aluminum used to hold each compartment or side in place. This is not a traditional floral arrangement that uses vases, but one that seeks to highlight the possibility of using old aluminum makeup cases as pieces of artwork.
