Make This: Colorful (Budget-Friendly) Mini Bouquets for Spring

diy-mini-spring-bouquets

It’s no secret that I love DIYs, but did you know that I am also kind of a flower freak? It’s true. I am obsessed with flowers. Always have been, really. For some reason though, I haven’t shared any floral DIYs here on Paper & Stitch, only on Project Wedding. But all of that is going to change today…

Since spring is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make some colorful, mini bouquets for the upcoming season. These are so easy to make, but the best part is the price! I bought about $15 worth of flowers and had enough to easily make 5 mini arrangements, so the total cost of one bouquet was around $3! I don’t think it gets any cheaper than that…I mean there are ranunculus in this bouquet.

Supplies: Small blooms (I used Ranunculus, Acacia, Stock, and Spider Mums)  // Scissors // Washi Tape

Step by Step Instructions: This how-to is easier to understand through photos, as opposed to written instructions. I do have a couple of tips before you get started though… 1) It’s easy to over do it. The charm of this arrangement is mainly in it’s size. So, you really don’t need many stems for this  floral DIY. 2) While constructing your bouquet, try not to touch the flowers themselves with your fingers (certain delicate blooms are sensitive to the skin’s oils and can turn the petals brown). 3) Keeping tip number 2 in mind, as you add more stems to your mini bouquet, move your hand further up (closer to the top, where the blooms start) to help keep everything in place.

Additional ideas: I love giving flowers as gifts, and if  you do too, you’ll just need to add a gift tag and you’re good to go. Deliver a few bundles to friends and family to say thanks for being so awesome. And if you want to make it extra special you could wrap each tiny bouquet in kraft or newspaper. OR include a miniature vase with your floral gift as an added bonus.

Let me know how it turns out Jenn. I bet you’ll find that it’s easier than you think to make your own.

These are so beautiful…I am inspired. I have never bought and made my own bouquets before and I am always disappointed when I buy a bunch from the grocery store. This gives me some great ideas, Thank you!

I had to go to 3 different flower shops to round up all the flowers Lauren (Jacksonville doesn’t have a great selection), so I feel your pain. You can really create a spring bouquet with any type of flowers you find though – as long as they have the right colors in them. Good luck!

Awww. these are so cute and beautiful! I love ranunculus… I don’t even know where I could buy those types of flowers around these parts… might have to try to figure it out, though.

I’d be thrilled if you’d link up at this week’s Off the Hook!

Aw, these are super cute! The colors are great and the washi tape really sets them off. Great photos, too. 🙂

I love adding simple little flowers to the dining room table. It just adds so much freshness and color. This one looks so pretty and simple, I love it.

Aw, thank you Anna. I’m always a little nervous sharing a new (for Paper & Stitch) category of DIY. This makes me smile.

P.S. Babs – I cannot wait until spring…clearly. 🙂

Thanks Laurel. I totally agree – flowers always make a big impact (at the very least on other flower lovers, right?). Haha.
