Beyond Spring: 15 Flower Arrangements That Will Inspire Your Own DIY Bouquets

Buying flowers for your family and friends is a great way to celebrate a special occasion, or even just to make them feel special on a normal day. Sometimes it’s just nice to have flowers around the house for yourself! However, unless you visit a boutique florist or pay additional prices, the arrangement of your flowers might not be as pretty or fancy as you had in mind. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, however, then that’s no problem at all!

Check out these 15 easy DIY flower arrangement inspirations that will have you reorganizing and rearranging your next bouquet for the better the second it’s in your hands!

1. DIY submerged flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY submerged flowers

Sometimes buying yourself just a few little blossoms is a great way to brighten up your space and your day. If you like pretty, unconventional things, you need to see Momtastic‘s submerged flower idea! Choose glasses that are the right size for each flower you bought and follow the instructions to weight each one down with flat crafting marbles.

2. Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

If you have a beautiful, wide stand that you want to turn into an arrangement but that doesn’t hold flowers in place well, all is not lost! Your local crafting store will have foam cubes design specifically for arranging flowers. Put on in the centre of the stand and poke the end of the flower stems into it. Arrange them all the way around until the foam no longer shows and voila!

3. Teapot flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRefreshing Teapot flowers

Rather than using a traditional vase to hold your flowers, why not make things look a little more vintage? Placing your blossoms in a teapot is one of the easiest ways to get that look! We love these little yellow flowers in a stark white teapot on Pinterest.

4. Glass bottles and scrapbooking paper

VIEW IN GALLERYGlass bottles and scrapbooking paper

Sometimes the vase is just as cute as the flowers, especially if you make it yourself! Find a clean, empty glass bottle that fits a few stems through the opening and neck. Before you put the flowers in, cut a strip of pretty patterned scrapbooking paper and tape it in place with washi tape. Tie it around the middle with a piece of jute string or twine for detail and pop your blossoms in the top. Check out how Decor 8 made these pretty little bottles!

5. Rainbow water and white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRainbow water and white flowers

If you’re looking for a way to brighten up the room but your favourite flowers are simple white ones, you can still incorporate colour in how you display them! We absolutely adore the idea of adding a little bit of food colouring gel to water in a clear glass vase and popping simple white flowers in the top, just like Paper and Cakery did!

6. Foam ball flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFoam ball flowers

We didn’t realize until we saw this arrangement on Pinterest how pretty it can look to have no vase or container at all! Instead, try sticking the end of each stem into a foam sphere from the craft store so you create a small floral dome that’ll look perfect in the centre of your dinner table!

7. Citrus vase

VIEW IN GALLERYCitrus vase

This floral decor from Pinterest just screams “summer” to us! For a little extra scent on top of the flowers, fill a mason jar with halved lemons and limes and plant your flowers in the middle. Besides smelling great, the arrangement is totally gorgeous!

8. A standing bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYA standing bouquet

If you’ve chosen flowers with very stiff stems then all you need is a ribbon and a wide glass to make this adorable standing arrangement. Tie the flowers near the very bottom of the blooms and spread the stems out so the bottoms are wide enough to support the flowers on all sides and keep them standing, just like this cute bouquet from Pinterest.

9. Cocktail flower

VIEW IN GALLERYCocktail flower

We love the stylish appearance of this adorably simple arrangement on Style Me Pretty! Trim the stem close to the flower’s head so it’s short enough to fit in the shallow cup and let it stick out the top like a decorative cocktail drink.

10. Flower monograms

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower monograms

This particular craft from Parcel Post is actually made with silk flowers, but we think it would be absolutely beautiful with real blooms for a special occasions! Find hollow chunky letters, use hot glue to fill them with green plant foam, and stick the flower stems in the foam so they fill up the letters completely.

11. Candy arrangement

VIEW IN GALLERYColorful Candy arrangement

We love this idea from Pinterest for Easter or kids’ birthdays in the springtime! Find a clear vase, fill it with colourful jelly beans, and plant the stems of your flowers right in the centre.

12. Spray painted mason jar planters

VIEW IN GALLERYSpray painted mason jar planters

Whether you choose to include the little bunny rabbit silhouette or whether you prefer solid colours, this spray painted jar idea makes for a cheerful and stylish arrangement. Check out how it’s done on The CSI Project!

13. Teacup flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYBeautiful Teacup flowers

You might think tulips and patterned teacups would make a very busy looking combination, but we’re in love with the look! Check out how Slim Paley added a vintage flair this way by placing purple tulips into teacups of contrasting colours!

14. Chalkboard message herb gardens

VIEW IN GALLERYSONY DSC

Painting a few simple planting pots with chalkboard paint is an easy way to customize your own display. Label them with the types of herbs planted, write inspirational quotes that you’d like to see all day, or give them to someone as a gift with a loving message message on them like these ones from Pinterest!

15. Upcycled graphic tin can planters

VIEW IN GALLERYGraphic tin can planters

This great tutorial by Home Talk shows you how to create adorable vintage looking planters simply by pasting images you like onto large tin cans. We love the homey effect such a simple arrangement gives the entire room, as thought you picked the flowers straight from the garden outside and grabbed the nearest tin to display their beauty!

15 Flower Crown Designs That Will Inspire You to Make Your Own

Whether you’re getting ready for a summer wedding, planning your looks for your next music festival in the sun, or you’re just really in love with the style, flower crowns are a gorgeous trend. Because they’re hot right now you can find them in most accessory stores, but you already know we’re big fans of making things ourselves! Your flower crown might be made of material and silk flowers or you might go all out and use fresh flowers and green leaves.

Check out these 15 inspiration shots of differently styled flower crowns to get your creative senses buzzing. Whether you’re gluing the blossoms to a hairband or wrapping fresh sprigs to a ribbon with crafting wire, your flower crown will look just as gorgeous as any of these!

1. Deep pink roses and berry pink lips

VIEW IN GALLERYDeep pink roses and berry pink lips

(Photo by Kelsea Holder)

One of the best ways to incorporate your flower crown into your look, particularly if your outfit is monochromatic, is to match the blossoms to your lipstick. A deep pink flower looks beautiful with a berry coloured pout!

2. Dusty orange blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYDusty orange blossoms

(Photo by We Heart It)

Very lightly coloured flowers, like this soft, dusty orange are perfect for a whimsical summer look. Try weaving long hair up into the back of the hairband you’ve built your flower crown on for a bohemian princess effect.

3. Green ivy with white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYGreen Iivy with white flowers

(Photo by Feather and Stone)

If you’re looking for a slightly more unconventional flower crown, this one’s for you! Simple white blossoms make it look whimsical and feminine, but the larger incorporation of green ivy sets this style apart form other ones and makes it look more understated and natural.

4. Small flowers and a hair braid

VIEW IN GALLERYSmall flowers and a hair braid

(Photo by Lindsey Shaun)

Speaking of understated but gorgeous looks, this style that incorporates tiny blossoms and baby’s breath makes a different kind of flower crown all together. Instead of gluing or wiring flowers to a hairband, use a braid as the “crown” and work the flowers and sprigs directly into the hair.

5. Loose baby’s breath

VIEW IN GALLERYLoose baby's breath

(Photo by Rebekah Westover)

Do you love the way that the baby’s breath in the previous picture looks so much that you wish for more? Instead of using it as solely an accent flower in your flower crown, try making it the centre of attention!

6. Thistles with white blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYGreens with few blossoms

(Photo by Ciara Richardson)

Here’s another one for your unconventional flower crown category! Making it with thistles gives a stronger, less whimsical look but adding a few white blossoms among the purple blooms keeps things soft enough for a wedding or special event.

7. Silk butterfly crown

VIEW IN GALLERYSilk butterfly crown

Okay, so technically this look isn’t a flower crown, but it reminded us so much of the same whimsical looks that flower crowns often achieve. Shake things up a bit by building a crown out of material or silk butterflies the way you’d normally use flowers.

8. Blossoms and lace

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms and lace

(Photo by Maria Mack)

If you’re looking for an even prettier look than a flower crown is already going to give you by default, try combining your flowers with lace! Let the lace run along your hairline or rest lightly against your forehead for a lovely, intricate look.

9. Matching the bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYMatching the bouquet

(Photo by Julie Siddi)

If you’re creating a flower crown specifically for a wedding, then one of the best ways of incorporating it into the look is to match it with the bouquet. The balance between the two bunches of flowers looks absolutely beautiful in pictures!

10. Flower crown tucked under

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower crown tucked under

(Photo by Delbarr Moradi)

Just because it’s called a flower “crown” doesn’t mean you have to wear it like a tiara! Try nestling your blossoms underneath your updo so the bun rests lightly on top of them instead. The look is unique but still classic enough for timeless pictures.

11. Blossoms with herbs

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms with herbs

(Photo by Michelle Boyd)

Many flowers together can be a little overwhelming looking, especially if you have slight features. In order to get that same volume in your crown without letting it take over your look, consider weaving in some herb plants instead of big floral leaves.

12. Cascading flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYCascading flowers

(Photo by MW Foto)

Why not consider some pretty asymmetry in your look? Letting a few flowers hang down on one sides looks beautiful, especially with some more voluminous gathered blossoms to balance the look out on the other side.

13. Pink cherry blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYPink cherry blossoms

(Photo by Serenity Crystal)

A simple ring of pink cherry blossoms is the perfect look for a summer music festival. It’s pretty, but it’s low maintenance and easy to make. It also won’t distract from the outfit you’ve put together!

14. Fluffy white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFluffy white flowers

(Photo by Laura Murray)

Sometimes big is the way to go! Large, fluffy flowers look beautiful with hair that has some volume but not enough to battle with the flowers for space. Choosing white ones looks very clean and well put together.

15. Asymmetrical berries and blooms

VIEW IN GALLERYAsymmetrical berries and blooms

If your motto is “go big or go home”, then you might be looking for a little something more than simple flowers. Adding berries to a huge blossom is a great way to mix colours and draw the eye to your face.

Wonderful DIY Pumpkin Seed Flower Decoration

VIEW IN GALLERYPumpkin-Seed-Flower-Christmas-Ornament-WONDERFUL DIY F

These pumpkin seed flowers are cute and beautiful, they are nice home decoration . I have never know about making a flower using pumpkin seeds , this is a very creative idea, and it’s very simple .
For making pumpkin seed flowers, first cut discs of card sheet, then glue the pumpkin seeds in concentric circles with the help of a hot glue gun , don’t forget to leave a circle empty in the center for the seeds to come. Then spread some hot glue over the center and quickly put peppercorns in mixed colors over it and wait for it dried ( I would like to put a family picture in the center ) . You can make a loop of ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the flower for hanging. That’s all ! Be sure make as many as you like and hang them on your wreath or garland. Enjoy ~~

Twine is a wonderfully versatile craft material that you can use to hang mobiles, string ornaments, wrap vases and bottles, tie packages, make banners, and form pompoms – and these are just a few of its countless uses.
If you already own a Bow and flower maker tool, then you probably already tried making twine flowers. But in fact, for these little cuties, you don’t really need a special tool.
Making twine flowers is something you can do with older children, those who are already quite dexterous and able to sit down for long periods. If you think the process may be too tedious for the kiddos, set up the cardboard-and-pin guides beforehand and immediately engage them in looping the twine.
Use these twine flowers as gift or loot bag toppers, greeting card accents, scrapbook embellishments, and party decor. Make several to form wreaths, table arrangements, and wall art. The possibilities are endless!

Materials you will need :
Twine (jute or cotton)
Cardboard (you can also use old boxes, illustration board, Styrofoam, etc.)
Multicolor pins
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Craft needle
Glue
String (you can also use ribbon, cord, a strip of fabric, etc.)

New Tricks Up Your Sleeve: Old Playing Card Crafts to Fall in Love With

We’ve always loved playing cards. When we were younger, our grandparents taught us to play card games of all kinds and our family has always had great game nights where everyone gathers around the card table for one game or another. Because of that, even just seeing playing cards, whether we’re using them as normal or not, has given us a nostalgic feeling of contentedness… and also a penchant for using them in any DIY or crafting project we possibly can!

Do you love playing cards just as much as we do, if not more, or perhaps just have access to a whole bunch of old used cards that you’d love to upcycle in useful ways? Then check out this list of 15 awesome playing card crafts that will take all of those partial decks with one or two missing cards after years if play off your hands.

1. Playing card party invites

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you a big fan of making just about any occasion you’re celebrating or hosting into a game night? Well then we’re certainly on the same page! Socializing is always great no matter what you’re doing, but we find we have a lot more fun if we’re all playing a game together than if we’re doing just about anything else. That’s why we love these little DIY party invites from Mark Montano! People will know before they’ve even read the inside of the card what they’re being invited to thanks to the awesome playing card on the front!

2. Playing card floral birthday card

VIEW IN GALLERY

Do you love the idea of making a DIY card using playing cards but you live in a very small apartment and don’t often send out invites because you don’t have a whole lot of space to host with? Well, don’t worry about it, because you can still make all kinds of other cards using playing card and they’ll be just as cool! Check out how The Craft Project made an awesome birthday greeting by cutting up pieces of colour and suit coordinated cards to create nice little flowers on the front!

3. Game night card bunting

VIEW IN GALLERY

When you do host game nights, are you the kind of super fun host who loves to go all our and create a complete décor scheme, just for a bit of extra flare? We’re totally that kind of host too! That’s why we were pleased to come across this cute but easy party bunting idea from My Crafty Adventures. We love the way they used old playing cards strung together to create awesome décor for a night full of new playing cards that are ready to use!

4. Upcycled CD playing card holder

VIEW IN GALLERY

Not every craft related to game nights and playing cards actually has to be made from playing cards. After all, if you’re a big fan of card games, you do have to save some of the cards to actually be used for playing rather than just crafting. In our household, however, some of the littler members of family still have trouble holding their entire hand throughout the whole game, even though they’re willing and eager to learn about all the different games we like to play. That’s why we made them these super useful card holders from Instructables! They’re easy to create from upcycled CDs and binder clips and they’ll make sure no one loses unfairly because they dropped their cards.

5. Hearts cards Valentine banner

VIEW IN GALLERY

Were you a big fan of the party bunting idea but you love playing cards enough that you’d love to make a similar thing for other events and celebrations instead? Well, then we have a feeling you’re going to love this heart themed bunting idea that Green Owl Crafts made for Valentine’s Day! We love the way the suit looks all gathered together and strung up with bright ribbons or tulle.

6. Playing card popsicle sticks

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps the issue for you is actually lack of playing cards, rather than an having an excess of them available for crafting and DIY projects? Maybe they were all ruined from years of use or because your kids are little and get too enthusiastic for the paper to withstand when you all play together? In that case, making your very own playing cards is a great idea, especially if you make them out of something a little hardier than the cards you’ll find in stores! Check out these awesome popsicle stick playing cards from Fun Family Crafts and see whether these might be a better option for your family’s game nights. We love them because they’re actually easier for our kids to hold and they’re also simple enough to make that everyone in the family can help!

7. Playing card game night place card

VIEW IN GALLERY

Did the idea of decorating for game night, especially with DIY things that you created yourself to be on theme, really catch your attention and now you’re trying to think of other ways to spruce your place up for the next round of poker you play with your friends? Then we have a feeling you’ll really enjoy these game night place markers from My Crafty Adventures. They show you how to use a bent playing card as a marker stand and embellish it with the person’s name and an old wooden game chip.

8. Playing card Valentines

VIEW IN GALLERY

Maybe you’re still thinking about the Valentine’s day idea but you’re not sure your house really needs some bunting for the occasion? In that case, maybe you’d prefer to actually make your Valentine’s themselves out of the heart cards! Okay, so maybe you’re not still in the habit of handing many Valentine’s cards out at once like you might have in your grade school days, but this idea from Mommy Savers is a fun one to do with your kids.

9. Scattered card headpiece

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you feeling a little more creative than the options you’ve seen so far and you actually love the aesthetic of playing cards so much that you’re considering adding them to your personal style, rather than just to your décor? Okay, so we know that playing cards aren’t necessarily the perfect accessory for a day at the office, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use them to make awesome pieces for themed parties and fancy dress occasions! Addicted to Beauty is on the same wavelength, so check out their awesome scattered card headpiece made from a plain hairband, some black jewelry wire, and as many playing cards as you please!

10. Playing card bottle cap wine tags

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have you always loved making wine glass tags because you’re an avid DIY host? We’re exactly the same way and by now we’ve amassed quite an impressive collection of tags of all different kinds, all created by ourselves using all manner of traditional and unconventional crafting supplies. Because we’ve made so many, it’s not often that we come across ideas for new tags that we haven’t tried before, so imagine how pumped we were when we found these beaded handmade tags from Crafts Unleashed that are made from playing card suits and bottle caps! See how they’re made in the site’s full tutorial.

11. “52 Reasons” complement book

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you actually do have a full deck of cards to work with and you want to make someone you love feel appreciated, but you’d rather make something a little more in depth than just a greeting card? In that case, we have a feeling you’re going to love this adorable DIY card book from IKEA Decora. On each of the 52 cards, write one reason that you love the person or one thing you appreciate about them. Any time they’re feeling down, they’ll be able to look back through the card pages and be reminded that someone cares for them deeply.

12. Playing card cutlery jar

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you still caught on the idea of decorating for the best game night ever, but you’d love to keep the techniques as simple as possible because the date is coming up fast and you don’t have much time to make things? Then we suggest look for some subtle tips that are quick to do and not very involved. This cutlery jar idea from My Crafty Adventures, which simply involves some playing cards wrapped around the middle with string or coloured twine, is the perfect example of what we mean!

13. Playing card hooked rug

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps your love for playing cards is so huge that you’d like to make yourself a more permanent décor piece that much of what you’ve seen so far, using some skills that you’ve already finessed elsewhere? Well, then rug hooking enthusiasts rejoice, because we’ve got the perfect pattern for you! Craft Institute guides you through the process of laying out and hooking your very own playing card inspired rug that’s fit for a queen. Get it?

14. Alice in Wonderland Cardsmen

VIEW IN GALLERY

Any regular queen has guardsmen, but in the magical world of Alice in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts had a protection team that were a little bit different; she had a clan of cardsmen instead! Wonderland makes for an amazing party theme no matter what you’re celebrating, and whether it’s officially a games night or not, so why not involve a playing card element by making a series of cardsmen of your own? Find out how these intimidating but awesome looking little playing card soldiers were made on Elizabeth Breton.

15. Woven loom playing cards

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you’re not very big into rug hooking but you’re still a big fan of other kinds of crafts involving string and yarn of different kinds? Then playing cards are definitely still your friend in several ways! We love the idea of making a practice loom using a playing card as a base because it lets you practice your looming skills on a small scale before you tackle a bigger project while still upcycling the old cards you have lying around and putting them to good use. Whether you incorporate these into a bigger loom project or simply use them as coasters or something after you’re done because you just need something dextrous to work on with your hands while you watch TV, we think we’ll like what you see about this idea on Tangle Crafts.
