And L’Atelier Rouge and I are back at it again. Last week, we made this simple but elegant wreath floral arrangement with white flowers, pine, + cypress. Today’s centerpiece is even easier to make. You’ll need sago palm leaves, strelitzia leaves, some gold spray paint, and a white poinsettia plant.
The first step (a day or two before you need to make the arrangement) is to spray paint the leaves gold. Once they are sprayed down, they’ll keep forever and you can repurpose them for other arrangements. Coat both sides with 2-3 coats of paint, and allow to dry for at least 24 hours.
Take your poinsettia and put it inside a vase.
Slowly add the gold leaves. We added the majority of ours to the left, to give it a nice interesting shape.
