I guess you could glue leaves to it, but I’m not sure how that would look.  Maybe do a test run?  Would it be possible for you to sink the green part into the vase filler?  Hopefully some other bees with silk flower experience can help you.  Something you might want to consider is going DIY with fresh wholesale flowers.  My entire decor budget was $400 including all of my flowers, in fact, it would’ve been more expensive for me to purchase them in silk.

TheMunroes:  Are you trying to get them to sink or just not show the green plastic piece? Do you want the flowers to sit on the rocks? You could use floral wiring tie it to the small piece of stem and than put the wire into the rocks which might help the green plastic parts face the bottom of the flower so not as visable.

TheMunroes:  I DIY’d my flowers from fiftyflowers and Costco (I’m in North Carolina).  Florists are crazy expensive, and my flowers were probably one of the easiest DIYs that I did.  I watched a few youtube videos, did a practice run and I’m really happy with how they turned out.  However, if you plan on using delicate stems (i.e. lily of the valley, irises, etc) you will probably want a professional.  Is there a particular type of flower that you had in mind?

TheMunroes:  Honestly I am not sure if the wire would show, is the water going to be dyed any colour or will it just be the clear water? Instead of floral wire, maybe you could find some fishing wire (something clear) that wouldn’t be as noticeable and tie it to one of the rocks (or find 1 big rock in a driveway tie the wire to it and than cover with your coloured stones to hide the rock). I haven’t made these before but just trying to think what you could use. I hope it works out for you!

Could you glue them back to back to each other? It may look better with 3 of them glued back to back so you don’t see the green part so much?
