Foam Wreath cut in half

Variety of Fresh flowers & foliage of your choosing



  1. Cut foam wreath and plastic base in half. Secure foam and base together with waterproof anchor tape. Add fresh clean water with flower food.
  2. Insert small hosta and hydrangea leaves cover and conceal the foam, add larger flowers at the base, then medium to small accents. The flower insertion will hold foliage in place.
  3. Use a variety of small stemmed foliage, flowers and accent as there is not a great amount of foam
  4. To water, put both sides on a plate, spray flowers lightly and wet the foam, let drain.
