What you will need:

  • Heuchera (or any dark-leaved pot plant)
  • Cut flowers & tall wildflower stems
  • Sharp scissors or secateurs
  • Vintage copper pan
  • Egg cups or jars
  • Floral tape
  • Feathers
  • Wire

How to make a Pot et Fleur step by step:

Step 1: Positioning the pots

Once you've positioned your pots, make a grid across the top using floral tape. If the tape isn't holding, scrunch up floral wire and add instead. 

Step 2: Add water 

Pour in enough water to fill your small pots.

Step 3: Begin adding blooms 

Decide where you want your wildflower stems and cut to the right height. Once you're happy with the structure, cut and place your feature flowers. Guide the stems through the wire or floral tape for support. Make sure the ends of all your cut flower stems are in the water.

Step 4: Position the feathers

Position your feathers, pressing them down into the pot plant soil.

Step 5: Fill the gaps

Add a few trailing blooms to the front and fill any gaps.

Step 6: Admire!

Make any final tweaks... Stand back and admire!
