- wooden crate
- white craft paint
- 1 large block floral foam
- plastic grocery bag
- 3 flats wheatgrass (available at health food stores)
- utility knife
- 12 floral water tubes
- 12 spring flowers of your choice (I used tulips, irises, stock and liatris)
- large bowl
Brush two coats of white craft paint onto an unpainted wooden crate. Let dry completely between coats and before proceeding with the project.
Add Floral Foam
Line the painted crate with a plastic grocery bag. Using scissors, cut the bag around the edge and tuck sides into the crate. Discard bag top.
Fill a large bowl with water, then dip both ends of a large block of floral foam into the water until just saturated. Using a utility knife, cut the floral foam in half. Place both halves in the bottom of the plastic-lined wooden crate.
Remove wheatgrass from plastic flats. Place two large pieces of wheatgrass on either end of the crate, then cut the remaining block of grass into sections with a utility knife to fill empty spots in the crate.
