 Step 1

Step 1 - Plan how you want the floral hoop to look

Start by planning how you want the floral hoop to look, to have a good idea of flower placement. You can still move this around as you go, but having a firm starting point is good!

In our version, we wanted the flowers to add impact and colour in specific spots, so we didn’t place them all the way round - but this is entirely up to you.

 Step 2

Step 2 - Start with the 2 largest, most prominent flowers as an anchor

Once you have an idea of how you want it to look, use the two largest, most prominent flowers to anchor your design, and serve as starting points. Here, the pink and orange sprays formed the shape at the bottom of the rattan hoop, balanced out with the beige flowers at the top.

Step 3 - Fill in the rattan hoop with smaller flowers, using florist wire to secure if necessary

Now that you know where you want the flowers to go, push the stems through the hoop, forming them around the circle. To keep it more organic and textured, don’t try too hard to get a perfect, round shape. While you want some of the flowers to rest against the hoop, others can also fan out. Secure the flowers with florist wire if you need to.

 Step 4

Step 4 - Fill in remaining spaces on the rattan hoop your choice of florals

With the main sections of your hoop mapped out, start pushing and shaping more flowers around it, considering what colours work well with one another. You could go for a tonal approach, or play and experiment with contrast and colour. In this floral hoop, we used a small yellow flower at the top and bottom for balance and symmetry.

 Step 5

Step 5 - When you're done filling the rattan hoop, trim of any ends that stick out

Keep going until you’re happy with the way it looks! Once you’re done, trim the ends of any stems that are sticking out, if necessary.
