The Secret To Creating Unique Containers
The secret to creating unique containers is...
Imagination. Indeed, imagination mixed with a little bit of creativity is the secret to creating some of the most fabulously unique containers for all of your arrangements. The most valued vases aren't the ones that are the biggest and the brightest (necessarily) but rather the ones that express the most unmatched and distinctive qualities.
Creating your own containers and vasesÂ is an excellent cost saving measure because it spares the fancy price tag of buying a set amount of someone else's creations. Better still, each vase orÂ container becomes instantly one-of-a-kind. There may be similar ones crafted by your own hand, but no two are exactly alike. What a great selling point for a unique gift idea!
Creating Unique Vases Step By Step
There are many ways to design and create your own unique vases. To get you started, here is a technique that many florists have found to be an eye-catching design to customers.
Ribbon is a staple item in local flower shops. It brightens an arrangement and adds color where more is needed. It softens the appeal of the bouquet while adding a very distinctive look. There is, however, another way that ribbon is being used that draws on these well-known qualities. Wrapping ribbon around the vase or container is becoming very popular. Not necessarily covering the entire outside of the vase, a small amount of ribbon can be wrapped around the vase to make a very pretty and distinctive pattern. ThisÂ enhances the beauty of the flower arrangement while adding an extra pop of color and style. Take a look!
