If you have two minutes and a few items on hand, you can make your own adorable arrangement!
When a friend gave me these pretty flowers – I knew I wanted to do something fun with them. They were part of a larger bouquet, attached to a very long stem. Since my arrangements often just flop to the side of the vase, I decided to get creative to keep them evenly-spaced. I chose to clip off those long stems and do a shorter display that would really show off their coloring. I love how they look from the top – fading from dark on the outer edge to lighter in the middle- they kind look ombre right?
What you’ll need:
- Wide-mouth glass “vase” (I used a Bath & Body Works 3-wick candle that I cleaned out & upcycled – I’ll have a tutorial soon on how I remove the stubborn wax & adhesive to make them look sparkly and new.)
- Flowers of your choice – preferably small or medium-sized depending on vase
- Clear tape
- Scissors to trim the flowers
- Optional: decorative stones to accent arrangement – I had some cute white ones from the dollar store
First, start off with the glass “vase” of your choice. I chose a short one but you could definitely do a taller vase if you prefer.
Using the clear tape, create a hashtag like the picture below. Two lines going up and down, two lines going from left to right. I cut my tape in half lengthwise to make the dividers “skinnier” and the holes “larger”. Now, we have the holes to stick our flowers through. Now would also be a good time to add water and stones.
Start placing your flowers into the holes until every spot is filled- you may have to rearrange a few like I did because some bigger/smaller flowers fit better in some places than others.
Perfectly-spaced! My type-A side is so happy! The tape is doing its job, but is completely hidden 🙂
There ya go! I love the clean look of this arrangement. They make a beautiful centerpieces and/or gifts – I know I wouldn’t mind getting this at all 🙂
Keep this in mind and let me know if you plan on trying it!
