Mounting Ganutell Flowers – part 1

The delicate beauty of Ganutell flower arrangements lends itself to wonderful decorations for your home. Most of the flowers I make are sold for this purpose, and that means I must be creative in finding ways to use them. 

I recently did a post (here) showing a wreath I’d decorated with an arrangement, and I do love the way it turned out. I’ve often used crystal candle holders as well, and you’ll see lots of these in the photos in many of my posts. shotglass1Because the arrangements are rather small, we’re limited in our choices of ways to mount them, and I’ve had to spend countless hours searching the internet for new ideas. I have found a few items that I’ve been experimenting with, and some have worked well, so I wanted to share those with you.

This is a shot glass that is quite reasonable in cost. They are about three inches tall, and well weighted at the bottom to prevent tipping. I’ve placed clear glass marbles inside, then filled with resin (I like to use Quick Water – I’ll post about this soon). When I placed the flowers in the glass I thought it looked slightly top heavy, so I added a simple ribbon bow at the middle for a more balanced look.shotglass2

I think it came out well, and am pleased with the result. If you have ideas for using your Ganutell flowers, please share them in a comment, or on the Bead and Wire Flowers Facebook page. As always, if you need help with your flowers or have a question, don’t hesitate to use the contact tab above.

Have a great week, everyone!
