For a container, I have chosen a red heart shaped box. It holds three four inch pink primrose plants just perfectly! The empty container measures seven and one half inches wide, by seven inches long, and three inches deep.
For tools and accessories, I used a pair of sharp scissors to cut one inch wide satin ribbon in red. The bow gives a festive feel to the plant arrangement! I used a wire cutter to cut pieces of wire to create stems. I covered the wire with brown floral tape to create a realistic looking stem for the small glittered hearts. The floral clippers are great to remove any damaged leaves or blossoms.
The finished container measures nine inches wide and six and one half inches tall.
I hope you will be inspired to create a Valentine arrangement, whether it’s for a spouse or a good friend who has been very helpful to you.
