If you couldn’t tell from this post, I’m pretty pumped about the change in seasons. So I thought a spring bouquet was in order for this week’s DIY. What do you think? Now, I know bouquets can be intimidating, BUT this one is so easy. You’ll be fine – I promise…
Here’s what you need: 9 tulips / 2 daffodils / scissors / 3 feet of string
Here’s how you make it: Start with 2 tulips and criss cross the stems a few inches below the base of each flower. Hold the stems right at that intersection and Add a couple more tulips the same way. Then add your daffodils. Nest, add the remaining tulips. I like to save a few of the freshest tulips (the ones that aren’t standing up all the way that flop over a bit) for last. They look great on the outer most areas of a bouquet especially. Next, have a friend start wrapping string right underneath the hand that is holding your finished bouquet. OR if you’re solo for this DIY, grab some washi tape with your free hand and wrap it around a few times to hold the shape. Then you’ll have two free hands to wrap the string around the stems and cover the washi tape, so no one will ever even know. All done!
Plop them in a vase or carry them around with you to a spring picnic. It could also work as a wedding bouquet, just add additional flowers if you want to make it fuller. AND since Mother’s Day is next month, this bouquet would be a good one to keep on hand for Mom too.
