Faux florals and pretty natural accents make for beautiful tabletop decor. All you need is a collection of colorful flowers, crafts wire and florists tape. It's so easy, you'll have a whole set finished in just a few minutes. We love the way they're styled with neutral dishware and a twine wrapping.

What You'll Need:

botanical arrangement supplies
  • Faux florals and greenery
  • Crafts wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Florists tape 
  • Scissors 
  • Twine 

Step 1: Wrap florals

wrapping floral tape around stem

Cut a 16" piece of crafts wire using wire cutters or heavy-duty scissors. Then choose a faux flower as the main bloom in your arrangement; cut the stem down to a few inches and begin taping it to the wire with florists tape. Wrap the tape tightly to completely cover the wire.

Step 2: Add greenery

When you've wrapped tape a few inches down from the flower, add pieces of faux foliage and accents like faux berries. Continue adding and wrapping with tape until all stems are securely attached to the wire, then trim excess tape.

Step 3: Wrap and style

Position finished faux floral arrangement on top of a napkin as desired. Attach it by wrapping wire several times around napkin. If the green of the florists tape contrasts too much with a lighter napkin, wrap twine or ribbon around the center to hide the tape. Set the table using a complete set of floral napkin rings; we love how the colors pop on neutral dinnerware!
