Make your own flower heart

With Valentines Day fast approaching we are ready to get in the mood for love. That's why we have made this quick post to show you how to make your own flower heart.

You will need:

1 Oasis Foam Heart

25 Roses

25 Carnations

5 Alstronmerias

5 Antirrhinms

Secateurs or a small sharp knife

You can use whatever flowers and foliage you like but the above is a list of flowers used in this heart

Step 1: Soak the foam

Place your Oasis foam heart into cold water. Let it sink naturally as if you push it down it will create air bubbles inside.

It is not essential but you can add flower food to the water.

Step 2: Prepare the flowers

Cut stems at a 45 degree angle. This is to create the biggest surface area for soaking up water.

Next remove any leaves and guard petals.

Step 3: Insert flowers into the foam

Push flowers down into the foam. If you have a certain number of each type you can start to spread them out to keep the pattern consistent.

Put larger flowers in first as it will be easier to insert small flowers around them.

If you decide to take one out to move it you must cut the bottom again as it will have foam inside that will stop it drinking up water.

Step 4: Continue inserting flowers

As you continue to insert the flowers you will see the shape of your piece start to form.

Once you have added all your large flowers start to fill the gaps with smaller flowers and any foliage.

Et voila! You have your own heart shaped flower arrangement.

Perfect for a centre piece on Valentines Day
