Creating A Casket Blanket
Ask the Expert: I would like to make a casket blanket to drape ove
to drape over the casket and then left on the fresh dirt after to closing of the grave. Â I do not want to use chicken wire and scratch the coffin. Â Can't I use crowning glory and just glue the flowers and greenery onto something soft? Suzy

Although I have never seen one - let alone make one, the term casket blanket does appear in the AFID Guide to Floral Design - Casket Blanket: a floral blanket design of plant materials constructed on heavy fabric and to drape over the casket, usually covering all sides.Â Great definition but what does that mean.
I assume that means you can use a fabric like burlap and fasten plant material to it by means of sewing, stapling or gluing. You will probably want to use foliage and flowers that can hold up with out a water source. Hopefully you can create the blanket, shortly before it is needed.
Unfortunately, I can't be more helpful. However, I am placing this question on our Flower Shop Network Facebook page to see if other florists have a better idea.
