Flowers are one of the most sincere touches you can add to a funeral for a loved one, especially if you know how to make a casket spray yourself.
A casket spray will drape over the surface of the casket in a show of sympathy. It offers a form of consolation to those who are mourning the loss of a family member or close friend.
By making the spray yourself, you can tailor its design in an adequate reflection of the deceased person's character.
Items needed to make the casket spray are:
- floral block
- casket saddle
- five-gallon bucket
- flower preservative
- fifty or more cut flowers
- two or more bunches of ferns
- drain stopper
- dish drainer
- floral tape
It is not necessary to use ferns as your greenery. You can also choose various types of ornamental grasses or even asparagus fern. For flower choices, those most appropriate for funerals include lilies, carnations, and roses.
