Now that spring is here, I’ve got flowers on my mind!
Flowers can be difficult to arrange and expensive, but they don’t have to be! Brighten up your home with this easy and inexpensive flower arrangement.
I absolutely love flowers, and if I could afford it, I’d have fresh bouquets scattered throughout my home every day. There is just something about gorgeous flowers that brightens up a room!
Do you feel the same way?
Thankfully, I’ve come up with a super affordable way to enjoy flowers in your home or for an event. All you need for this easy and inexpensive flower arrangement is a cheap supermarket bouquet (or two), plus a collection of empty jars, and you can have flowers in every room of your home!
I first shared this affordable way to arrange flowers over at The Pinning Mama, but it was too good not to share here, too!
This pretty display is a great way to bring a little cheer into your home, but it would be perfect for an event, too. Can’t you just picture these jars filled with colorful wildflowers and running down a long table? I think I hear wedding bells!
Want to make your own easy and inexpensive flower arrangement? Here’s what you’ll need:
- a bouquet or two of flowers (I found mine at the grocery store.)
- glass containers (I used a mix of mason jars, small glasses, and upcycled food jars.)
Start by filling your glass jars about 3/4 full and by removing any leaves from the flower stems (I just pull or cut them off).
Create a small bouquet in your hand. It should be taller in the middle and shorter on the sides.
Hold the flowers up against the jar you plan to display them in. This will help you gauge where to cut the stems.
Trim the stems on an angle. Give yourself a little wiggle room; it’s easy to trim the ends shorter, if needed, but impossible to make them longer.
Arrange the flowers in the containers, cutting more length from the stems if necessary.
Repeat with the remaining flowers.
I separated the flowers by color, but you could certainly mix a variety of colors together in each container.
Play with the arrangement of the flowers until you have a pleasing display. I grouped the jars together, but you could spread these mini arrangement throughout your home or around a room, too. Wouldn’t that look pretty?
If you like to collect interesting jars (my cupboards are full), this is the perfect way to use them!
Are you a flower lover, too? What is your favorite type of flower?
