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


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.
