These handmade blooms by David Stark Design are as unexpected as they are elegant—and they’re a cinch to make using basic tools and materials. “Planted” in a pot or vintage vessel, these works of art make a chic centerpiece or a fabulous gift for your bridal party that can be displayed long after your big day is over.

1. Fill a sandwich bag with about 1/4 cup of sand. Wrap just above the sand with white floral tape.
