Cupped flowers look nice in an arrangement if you add a stem and calyx, or you can use them as little Easter and gift baskets.

This is a very simple technique that even young children can do.

Lid and flower To make cup shaped flowers you will need:

  • something to hold the shape such as a lid from an aerosol can for a medium sized flower or a soup cup for a large flower
  • a spray bottle or source of steam such as a kettle or saucepan of boiling water
  • A finished ribbon straw flower
Damp flower pushed inside the lid Gently push your flower into the lid or cup.

Mist with water or hold over some stem until damp.

Reshape in the cup if necessary.

Finished flower when dry Let dry in the cup. When it’s thoroughly dry you should be able to remove it and it will hold it’s shape.
