Easy DIY Floral Arranging Technique

Thrifty Thursday

With wedding season in full bloom, we figured a quickie DIY on a basic floral technique might come in handy for bride’s whose budget feels a wee bit tight.  Actually, this technique is awesome for arrangements at home and work, too.  It is a cinch, and helps make your DIY arrangement look legit!  I even use this method when grabbing blooms from my backyard.

Cut, or tear, your duct tape into strips.

Using multiple strips, create a grid on top of your vessel.  We loved making a sweet arrangement in this old coffee pot for one of our bride’s celebrations.

What’s the point of all this????  Simple, this handy little grid is going to give your buds support, so that your arrangement looks full and not weepy-sad.

Simply place a couple of flowers in each grid opening until you love what you see!

Not a sad, saggy bud in the bunch!  This technique is awesome for all flower types, both mixed arrangements and single floral arrangements like these gerbera daisies.  What a happy bunch!!!

Stop and smell the flowers today, lovelies!
