Easy DIY Flower Arrangements

LAST UPDATED: Sep 21, 2020 | PUBLISHED: Nov 06, 2012 | By: Julie Blanner

I’m writing this post on how to arrange fresh flowers not because I’m an expert, but because I’m NOT an expert.  I want you to see that anyone with a few fresh flowers and a few minutes can create a beautiful flower arrangement.

To begin, a few supplies:
vase {get creative, anything can be a vase!} here I used chalice
wet floral foam

Step 1: Cut floral foam to fit in your vase.

Step 2: Fill a sink or large bowl. Set floral foam ON TOP of water and allow it to sink on it’s own.

Step 3: Place your wet foam in the vase. Do not force.
Step 4: Cut and insert your first stem.  Here I started with the greenery because I created wanted to create a base with the dusty miller.  You can also start with a large bloom in the center and work out.
Step 5: Work in a circle, ensuring an even, full, arrangement.

Keep building!  Fill in with more blooms and greenery as needed, working in the circle!

 When in doubt, a single bloom always looks beautiful too, in a short or narrow vase!  Just add water.

When in doubt, use a series of single stems in vases and candlesticks.
