I still have a bunch of white and pink kekwa I bought for the DIY gubahan hantaran magazine photo shoot. I thought about making a more elaborate sirih junjung from the leftover of crysthanamum. The lower part which I have arranged the betel leaves (daun sireh) was the same one I used for the photo shoot.
I found the white IKEA pot in my craft room and put it in the middle of the sireh arrangement. I couldn’t find spaghnum moss to cover the top part of the florist sponge so I have to use some artificial fillers.
For the topiary I added more pink and white kekwa to cover the bottom part of the florist sponge. It was quite a challenge for me to make sure that it looks like a ball..haha!
I still make sure that I use bunga pinang, bunga kapur and gambir in the sirih junjung arrangement. It doesn’t matter what kind of style your sirih junjung might be, but the essential must be included. Otherwise it won’t be a sireh junjung, rather a floral arrangement with sireh leaves.
Oh, for this particular style of sirih junjung, I only used about 50 sirih leaves, 2 stalks of pink kekwa and 1 stalk of white kekwa.
