Choose carnations of your favorite colors and hold them together in multiples of 12, i.e., 12, 24, or 36.
Hold any three carnations in your hand in a roughly triangular shape, around 6 inches from each other, at slightly varying heights to make the bouquet look like a nice, big bunch.
- Add a carnation to each one in your hand in such a way that it forms a bigger triangle by placing them at different levels.
- Now, add two carnations on each of the three groups so that the entire bunch would look to have a circular outer edge. Keep adding more flowers until it forms one full set.
- Wrap the bunch of flowers around the stems with the help of a tape, and then cover the tape with a ribbon.
- Using scissors, cut the stems an inch below the ribbon, and place the bouquet in a vase containing water. Moisten the flower with water and keep the bouquet at a cool place.
