Making your own flower frogs is a great way to make flawless floral arrangements with little to no effort!

Here are some tips on how to make your own flower frogs and create flawless fall floral arrangements:

  • Grab some oven baked clay and a pen and use the cap to make holes in your clay. Preheat the oven to 265 and bake for about 12-15 minutes.

  • Another option is to use floral foam as a base for your flower frog. Soak the foam in water until it is fully saturated. Cut the foam to fit inside your vase or container, leaving some space for stems to be inserted.

  • Once you have your flower frog in place, start adding your fall blooms. Some great options for fall include dahlias, mums, sunflowers, and asters. Use a variety of colors and textures to create a visually interesting arrangement.

  • Don't be afraid to mix in some foliage or other natural elements like branches or berries. These can add depth and dimension to your arrangement.

  • When placing your stems, start with the larger blooms and work your way down to the smaller ones. This will help ensure that your arrangement looks balanced and visually pleasing.

  • Finally, don't forget to trim your stems at an angle and change the water every few days to keep your flowers looking fresh and beautiful.

By making your own flower frog and using fresh, seasonal blooms, you can create stunning fall floral designs with ease, appreciation and gratitude.
