Dry Reeds Arrangement

Dried flowers or reeds can be arranged aesthetically to brighten up your homes. The advantage of dry flower arrangement is that they'll last much longer when compared to fresh flowers. Here we have arranged the reeds in a small cane basket. Its a simple arrangement that anybody can try out and give as a gift to your dear ones.


  • Dry reeds different varieties
  • Glitters -Silver or any co-lour
  • Fabric paint (Fevicryl) - Different co-lours
  • Brush 
  • Face tissue
  • Thin aluminum wire or stick
  • Glue (Fevicol)
  • Cane basket
  • Oasis or Brica

Collect different reeds or grasses. Dry them in the sun.

Make small flowers
with tissue paper as shown in the picture. Cut out small equal circles from the tissue paper. OR cut out square pieces of tissue paper, four fold them. Cut the open edges in a semi circle. Open the pieces to get perfect rounds or circles. Stick two or three of them together in the center, crinkle them a bit and wrap them around a thin aluminum wire or stick.  Or make any other flowers given in the paper flower section.

Co-lour the dried reeds by applying glitter or fabric paint. Take some glue in the brush and apply on the reeds. Dip the glued reeds in glitter. Apply paint, any co-lour of your choice, on the reeds with the brush. Then arrange reeds along with the paper flowers in a piece of oasis (green sponge like material) and place it inside the Cane basket. Your cane basket is ready.
