Make This: The $2 Mini Message Bouquet DIY

bouquet on a budget //  costs $2

It’s not exactly a secret that I have a love affair of sorts with flowers.

The only downside, really, is that it can get expensive fast. And I happen to be most drawn to flowers that are pricey, for some reason. So I can break the bank without even trying. And I do on the regular.

But I do like a budget challenge as much as the next DIY girl, so I try to come up with affordable flower projects as often as possible. You know, when I’m not covering a three foot tall ampersand in piano garden roses or creating a hanging pendant light covered in calla lilies and dahlias.

Which is why, I’m happy to report that today’s flower DIY pretty much takes the cake on the budget scale. It costs $2 to make! And the flowers are store bought, not picked from my imaginary garden. The trick is using filler flowers, instead of larger blooms, and keeping it small. Super small.

My favorite part about these little bouquets though, aside from the price, is the secret message. It’s a nice surprise for whomever you decide to give these little bundles to. Once the newspaper is unwrapped from the bouquet, the message is revealed. Surprise!

I think these bouquets would be cool alternatives to standard thank you cards, Valentine’s Day gifts/ greeting cards, weddings, etc.

[…] You guys know I couldn’t resist throwing a flower DIY in here for good measure. I made this bouquet just like this one, only I used decorative wrapping paper, instead of kraft paper. The wrapping paper is from Rifle, in case you were wondering – it’s Happy Stripe. Once the bouquet is wrapped, tie it with string and add a card or leave a secret message inside the paper wrapping, like I did with this DIY.
