The Perfect DIY!



I adored this concept! Just had to share it... Here is how:

1. Select a large fruit or vegetable that will hold your variety of flowers. Cut the very top off of fruit or vegetable with a knife.

2. Carve a 3 inch round/deep opening in fruit or vegetable.

3. Carve floral foam to fit inside of votive holder.

4. Put floral foam inside of votive holder and place into the fruit or vegetable opening.

5. Pour water into votive holder.

6. Snip the stems of flowers and arrange them however you like and stick them one by one into the foam.
