Headstone vase arrangement
1. How to make a cemetery vase arrangement with no floral foam, using a pool noodle instead.
First, place a zip tie in the Bowdabra. Next, add some loose florals, then pull the zip tie tight and remove it from the Bowdabra. Fluff and arrange your bouquet. Zip-tie a pool noodle piece to the arrangement. You may need two or three layers of pool noodle pieces. Add your arrangement to the vase.
2. How to make a no floral foam headstone saddle arrangement & adding extra security to the headstone for the flowers. Keep adding florals to make the swag.
First, load the Bowdabra with a zip tie, then add several dollar tree bushes to the Bowdabra. Tie it with the zip tie and then, fluff the swag. Add the arrangement to the saddle. To keep it in place add some hooks. Secure it with Bowdabra bow wire.
