How to make a simple spring arrangement

 I saw this bright green decorative watering can in the Target Dollar Spot and knew it would be a darling base for a spring arrangement. I took some supplies I had on hand and whipped up a bright cheery arrangement in a few minutes. I'm going to show you how to do this. (This is so easy, I should be embarrassed to call this a post.)
 
Here are the supplies you will need:
 
1. Container for base
 


2. Floral foam
3. Silk daisies or other bright faux flowers

 
4. (Not pictured)  cutting tools
 
 My mom gave me a Floracraft floral foam knife for Christmas and it cuts through foam like butter, and leaves less mess. You will also need some type of wire cutter to cut the stems of your flowers if you purchase them in a bunch.
 
 


Cut your foam to fit inside the container. Trim your flowers into individual stems and then starting sticking them in the foam, working around the container to keep the shape and symmetry you like. Keep adding flowers until you have the desired fullness you want.


I'm so happy with my cheery little arrangement. It has become a centerpiece on my porch table.


Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Your arrangement is lovely! I wish I was crafty enough to do it but I have a hard enough time tracing my own handprint let alone making a nice floral arrangement!
