There is a store near my house with floral arrangements that take my breath away. I have one in the foyer that I love and I willingly forked over the funds last year after putting a birthday gift card to use. I’m not going to pretend that I can put something together as well as a floral designer. However, the small arrangements are pretty pricey and I figured I could handle that on my own.
I knew I wanted preserved flowers which is different than what you see at most craft stores. In my case, I bought hydrangeas at a booth at a local home decor market. They were marked down 50% which made the diy-version extra worthwhile.
I also bought the container at the market but at a different booth. The floral foam came from Michael’s.
1. You will need a small container for your arrangement. Think outside of flower pots for a more interesting look.
2. Floral foam. This was $3.99 for 2 cylinders at Michael’s. I only used one.
3. A couple of stems of the flower of your choice.
Not exactly difficult, but it was a good starter project! I would love to take a floral design class one of these days. I’ll add that to the bucket list!
