sun-bleached spring floral arrangement

Sun-bleached floral with pampas grass is all the rage when it comes to floral arrangements. Update your living space with this trend right arrangement in the perfect palette to transition between winter and spring!
Step 1

Cut dry floral foam to fill your container.

Step 2

Hold the pampas grass up to the container to determine the length needed for your stems. Trim off any excess and place in the floral foam towards the back of the container. Place the natural tones towards the back and blend in pastels towards the front.
TIP: When working with the pampas grass you will need to open the branches and fluff for the full soft look as seen in nature.

Step 3

Begin to add the sun-bleached stems. Hold them up to the container and trim the stems as needed. Keep some tall and others shorter so they can drape over the front and sides of the container.
TIP: Use your fingers to slightly bend the stems so the floral looks and hangs as it does in nature.

Step 4

Now, take a photo so you can look at the entire composition. Adjusted as needed.
TIP: If desired, add hot glue to the stems prior to pushing them in the floral foam. This will make them more permanent.
