Fresh Flower Centerpiece

Fresh Flower Centerpiece

Easter is the perfect opportunity to bring in the freshness of spring to your home.  I can buy beautiful CA Grown flowers at my local Wal-Mart for a great price and make this stunning centerpiece for a great price.  Shhhhh.  What looks like a floral piece that would cost hundreds of dollars from a florist, will only cost you about twenty dollars – or less, depending on what you have on hand.

MATERIALS NEEDED

Fresh Flower Centerpiece

  • 16″ clay or plastic saucer
  • floral foam
  • glass hurricane ( or just use a jarred candle)
  • 2 or 3 CA grown bunches of flowers

INSTRUCTIONS

Fresh Flower Centerpiece

Step 1:  Soak the foam brick in a bucket of water so that it absorbs a lot of water

Step 2:  Place the soaked floral foam on to the saucer

Step 3:  Start with the greenery and begin inserting the stems into the floral foam until full and lush

Step 4: If you are using a hurricane, push it down into the foam to secure.

Step 5:  Cut the stems of the larger flowers and place them into the foam

Step 6:  Insert all the smaller flowers, making sure to space out the colors and heights randomly

These make wonderful wedding centerpieces for the DIY bride too!
