What do you put for filler in the flower pots for the Paperwhites?
We filled the pot with floral foam and then covered it with moss. 🙂
I am using a terra-cotta flower pot that I painted. It has a 5.25” opening and I cannot find an appropriate sized piece of foam. Any ideas?
If using floral foam you can cut the foam with scissors to the size you need. You may also push multiple small pieces of foam into the pot you are using.
Ok thanks will give that a try.
Do you have any other medium besides social media for sending you pictures of our work? I do not use social media.

do you stretch the triangle piece before gluing it and then stretch it again to open the circle? I can’t seem to get the triangle piece to glue close correctly.
I glued mine around first, and then stretched it a bit at the top to flare out. But you can certainly stretch it a bit first, or cut the triangle slightly larger so it has more room to overlap.
Is there a trick to getting the leave right? I glue them at the base on the wire, but then the top just flops over
Try folding the leaves in half before gluing– the fold will give the leaves some structure. You could also use a longer piece of wire and glue the wire further up the leaf.
There are three petal templates but you only show two shown in the instructions…do we just use the two largest leaves and not the smallest? Also, do we use only one of the triangle-shaped petals around one fringe? Sorry for silly questions, but I’m just a beginner! Thank you for your website and instructions!
Hello! The tutorial shows the smaller leaves but you’ll see in the photos we used all three sizes– so you can mix and match to create heigh differences in the final arrangement. Yes, only 1 triangle shape petal around 1 fringe.
These are just too sweet! Will have to try them for sure. Thank you.
You’re so welcome 🙂
Just for kicks, go to Neiman Marcus website and search paperwhites. They have a arrangement of faux paperwhites in a ceramic bowl for a mere $450!!! Thank you, Lia! You are saving all of us a fortune 😀.
WOW! So glad we can help 😉
