easy flower arranging trick {aka floral frog}!

I'm constantly add crafting ideas, diy projects, etc. to my pinterest boards (or liking them) and most recently I re-pinned this photograph for a to-do when arranging flowers.  I finally took the opportunity to try this out & used a bunch of cheap dahlia's from traders and arranged them in a larger bowl.  I didn't do a fancy arrangement, just stuck to the dahlia's, but this was quick and easy.  I imagine if you were doing a more intricate arrangement this would be very helpful (especially if you had a large beautiful bowl to arrange in).  Also, a lot of times flowers like dahlia's (& zinnias) sink down into the water and tend to not last very long, with this idea the flowers have something to rest on and stay standing.  I highly recommend this method (I used regular masking tape instead of the cellophane tape).  Originally found here.
