Choose a vase.

Get started with your design by choosing a vase! You can use any vase you'd like, as long as the mouth (the opening at the top) is larger than the size of your pin frog. The pin holder doesn't need to fit the vase perfectly, it just needs to be big enough to hold the flowers that you have! 

Preparing your Vase

Prepare your flower frog.

Begin your design by placing floral putty along the outside edge of the bottom of your flower frog. While floral putty isn't required, it will keep the flower frog in place while you design and when the arrangement is moved. You can purchase floral putty at our sister store, by clicking here

Place your frog and add water.

Gently press your flower frog into a clean and dry vase. If there's any moisture in the vase, the floral putty will not stick. Add water to your vase. While you want the complete design to be completely filled with water, you'll only need to cover the flower frog while you're designing and top off the water when your arrangement is complete. 

Make something magical!

Start your design with flowers that have thicker stems. Give each stem a sharp, angled cut and insert it into the frog piercing the stem onto the nails. As you build your design, it's easier to weave in smaller stems using the thicker stems to support your placement. 

Protip: once your design has lived its best life, remove the flower frog from the vase immediately. Over time, the putty will harden and be difficult to remove.

Make something magical!

Grab some snips or scissors and cut flower stems at a sharp angle. Insert the stems into the pins, piercing the stems on the nails. Perfect for one stem or many, the pin cups are a great way to showcase your favorite flowers! 

Protip: watch the water! Flowers get very thirsty, and since they're suspended in the water they have access to drink as much as they'd like. Check water daily to keep your flowers hydrated and happy.
