Budget DIY to Try: The $10 Bouquet

Flower Types: Hyacinth and Star of Bethlehem

I always like to have a few DIY gift ideas in my back pocket that only take a few minutes to whip up. You never know when something might pop up that you need a little gift for. And sometimes it’s hard to come up with something last minute. Right? It’s like my brain locks up under pressure or something.

Which is exactly why I try to come up with DIY ideas ahead of time that are my go-tos on such an occasion. This budget-friendly $10 bouquet is one of them.

To make your own, you’ll just need two kind of flowers and a little ribbon. Bonus points if you have a label maker on hand.

For this particular bouquet, I used Hyacinth and Star of Bethlehem. Both are super inexpensive by the stem…I think I picked up 4 stems of Hyacinth for 6 bucks ($1.50 a stem) and some Star of Bethlehem flowers for $4. Which brought the total to a whopping $10. Add some ribbon and a little message with a label maker and you are good to go.

Such an easy gift idea and super affordable too, which I love. Plus, if you’re going with the label maker ribbon message, you can customize it for any occasion…birthdays, housewarmings, thank yous, etc.

Think you’ll give this budget bouquet a try? I’d love to hear what other flower suggestions you might have that would still fit into the $10 cap.

OMG the label maker idea is brilliant!


I love this simple post! I love using fresh cut Hydrangeas from my garden. And adding a piece of craft paper or even burlap/fabric would look cute!

So pretty! I definitely want to try my hand at this over the weekend!



This is so lovely! And it looks pretty easy! Thanks for sharing!


Oh, what a gorgeous bouquet! In Singapore where everything is overpriced, it’s quite tricky to find a range of flowers to fit under $10! Super jealous!

Hmmm….What about trying just one type of flower that is usually used as a filler? Maybe Stock or Nigella? Those tend to be on the cheaper side as well. Hope that helps.


Thanks Courtney.


Love this! It’s perfect for a last min gift… I will have to keep this in mind. It’s so simple and looks stunning.
