How to Use Floral Foam at Home
Floral foam and floral tape can be found at most craft stores and floral supply shops. It's used to create volume in your floral arrangements. It also helps to keep each flower in place. Here's how to use floral foam in your home to create beautiful, professional looking arrangements without the cost of a professional florist. Start by soaking your floral foam in a cool bucket of water. Let it sink on its own. Once it's sunk it's ready to use. Use a butter knife to cut the foam so it fits snuggly into your vase. Tape the foam from one side to the other using your waterproof floral tape and then tape in the other direction. Now you're ready to begin arranging. Cut your stems and gently push them into the floral foam and turn your arrangement frequently to maintain a nice, even shape.
