I love fresh flowers and I love floral arrangements made with fresh flowers, however I don’t like the prices I see when I know these flowers will die. I recently took a class on how to make my own Spring Diy Floral Arrangement at my Local Michaels craft store and I wanted to share with you how I made mine. To make Floral arrangements you only need a few items to customize your own, you can be as creative as you want or as simple as you want . The theme I went for was for pops of colour for my existing Family room decor. Currently my Family Room is more of a beach type theme with cool Greys, vivd Blues and Water theme photography on the walls. I was looking for a bright contrast colour to break up the room so I went for Peaches, Yellows and hints of Orange. Now for my flower choices I went with Peonies, Ranunculus(which is hidden in the back), Dahlias and Spring floral bushes for fillers. The possibilities are endless in terms of what you come up with depending on your style or taste. Take a look below for a list or materials and instructions for you to make this at home.
Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside the wooden bucket. Hot glue the bottom of the foam to the the bucket to secure, if it feels loose.
First you will add the large blossoms to the lower front of the bucket, as your focal point. Hold the stems up to the bucket and cut each stem so it is about 5.1 – 10.2 cm (2″-4″) above the rim. Push stems into the floral foam.
Add the mid-sized floral that you choose and position behind the large blooms. Remember to slightly bend the stems with your fingers by pinching the stems and gliding them through, creating an arch. Hold the stems up to the bucket and cut so they stand 5.1 – 7.6 cm (2″-3″) above the focal flowers.
Fill in the back and sides of the arrangement with bushes that add filler. Simply cut off all the stems on the wildflower bushes and push them into the floral foam, one at a time. Position them around the focal point, arranging until you like the overall look.
