Most professionals us a floral frog. Frogs fit in the bottom of a vase and are used to keep flowers in place and evenly spread. They prevent leaning and will make your arrangement look fuller. These are usual made of metal or glass. I’m going to show you how to faux one using plain old scotch tape and arrange flowers like a pro!


All you need to do is take your roll of scotch tape or floral tape and any vase. I’m using my 4th of July washi tape vase. I put the water in my vase first because I’m messy but you can do it after if you want.  Make a criss-cross pattern at the top with your tape. If your vase has a larger opening you may want to do more lines than I did.

Some of my stems were pretty large so I made the spaces bigger. If you have a lot of tiny stems then you may want to use more tape and make your spaces smaller. I then started putting my flowers in the grid lines. I used 1 1/2 bouquets from my local grocery store.
