DIY Crawfish Boil Teardrop
This week our floral designer Tim created a teardrop that is unique and festive for the Crawfish season. He used one of our Evergreen Teardrops, Deco Mesh and fun Crawfish accents. We just love how this one turned out. You can create one of your very own using the steps and supplies listed below.
- (1) 28" Evergreen Teardrop
- (1) Red Crawfish Wooden Tray
- (1) 20" Plastic Fern Leaves Mixed Greenery Bush
- (1) 21" Green Plastic Rice Bush
- (3) 24" Red Fabric Flowers, Leaves & Berries Spray
- (1) 24" Sliced Lemon Spray
- (1) 2.5" Yellow & White Plaid Spring Ribbon
- (1) 2.5" Crawfish Boil Ribbon
- (1) 10" Deco Mesh - Burlap
- Wire Cutters
- Floral Wire
- Hot Glue
- First things first, you will need to gather all of the necessary supplies. Feel free to add to or change any of the components that we have used. You can alter this design to fit your personal taste.
- To get started Tim fluffed the branches on the Teardrop and then began adding the 10" Burlap Deco Mesh. He started at the very top of the Teardrop and worked in a zigzag pattern back and forth across the Teardrop. He used the branches on the Teardrop to tie down the Mesh creating the classic Deco Mesh pouf.
- When he was finished adding the Deco Mesh he moved onto working with both of the greenery bushes. He cut a piece off of each bush and placed them in the Mesh. He added Hot Glue to the end of each piece to help secure it to the Teardrop and Mesh. He worked mainly on the edges of the Teardrop
- Next Tim added the Crawfish Tray by using floral wire to secure it to the Teardrop. He looped the floral wire through the legs on both sides of the tray and then tied it to the Teardrop.
- Then Tim added more of the Greenery throughout the Teardrop.
- Tim then looped the Crawfish Boil Ribbon throughout the Teardrop by tying sections down with the branches from the Teardrop.
- Tim created a three loop bow using both the Crawfish Boil Ribbon & the Yellow and White Plaid Ribbon for the top of the Teardrop. This is a stacked bow that he tied together and then separated the loops. He used floral wire to secure the bow to the Teardrop.
- To add a bit more ribbon to the bottom sections of the Teardrop Tim created small single loop bows out of each of the ribbons. He attached them to the Teardrop using floral wire.
- Next Tim separated the Lemon Slices Pick into separate sections and placed them throughout the Teardrop using Hot Glue to secure them.
- Finally to add more Red throughout the Teardrop, Tim separated the Red Flowers spray into individual sections. He used Hot Glue to secure them to the Teardrop.
- When you have finished adding all of the accents you can come to a stopping point. You will have a festive and fun Teardrop to use throughout the Crawfish season.
