You will need:

● craft knife
● stencil card or film
● 6 terracotta pots of different sizes
● tape
● gold spray paint
● Cellophane
● 2 blocks of Oasis (presoaked)
● 5 taper candles
● 18 clove carnations
● 12 red roses
● 18 red freesia
● 5 hypericum berries
● 2 gold-sprayed berried ivy
● 3 gold-sprayed salal
● 1 large terracotta saucer

Tip: Use flowers that are fully open - they will be cheaper and you may not need as many.

Step 1

Cut the word ‘joy' from your stencil card or film. Hold against rim of largest pot, secure with tape and spray with gold paint.


 



Step 2
Spray three of remaining pots gold. Line each pot with Cellophane and cut Oasis to fit inside each pot.







Step 3
Push four candles into largest pot and one candle into smallest pot. Trim stems of all flowers and push in to fill pots to create a dome.






Step 4

Cut stems on berries and leaves, fill remaining pots and arrange on saucer.
