Spring has arrived and summer’s around the corner, that’s when we want to bring flowers inside!

FLOWER ARRANGING ON A BUDGET AND EASY TO MAKE 1

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money and you don’t know how to make a flower arrangement like the pros yet, then I’ve got the solution for you.

 

Regroup your vases

  • Search your cupboards and pick several vases, jars or bottles
  • Clean them (I’ll give you a pro tip at the end for getting traces of limestone off)
  • Choose a mix of colors or just one
  • Arrange them by size, put the taller ones in the back, medium in the middle and the smaller ones in front
  • Cut some flowers in your garden, in the woods (if you have any nearby) or pick a few flowers up at your local grocery store
  • Fill your vases with water

PRO TIPS

>  If you want to create some contrast then choose a vase or two that are brighter in color and add a few flowers that pop too.

>  If you don’t have enough flowers, dont worry, use some greenery (ivy leaves, hosta, etc.)

>  If you really want to add that extra dimension and fill the space up then add a plant (orchid etc.)

FLOWER ARRANGING ON A BUDGET AND EASY TO MAKE

>  To get your flower stem at the right height, place it next to the vase and cut the part that’s in excess, that’s lower than the bottom of the vase

>  If you want to have that natural prairy style effect then don’t think it through too much.
      Cut and prop into the vases.

     –  Place your vases or bottles (on a table, shelf, platter, plate, etc.),
     –  Sort them by size
     –  Sort your flowers by size, use the tall ones for the tall vases and bottles
     –  Put the flowers and leaves in the different vases
     –  Take a few steps back
     –  Rearrange one or two stems and voilà.

Pre-assembled vases

FLOWER ARRANGING ON A BUDGET AND EASY TO MAKE

If you want to start out simple then buy a pre-assembled selection of bottles or vases.

This one had 5 small bottles inside of a wooden box. I found it at a garden show and bought 2 so I can make an extra-long flower arrangement for a table, etc.

In this case just cut all of your flowers more or less at the height.

PRO TIP

Rub your vase with vinegar to get rid of traces of limestone

JUST HAVE FUN !

Make 2 or 3 arrangements and you’ll see that you’ll start getting the hang of it and won’t have to think too much to get the effect you want 😊
