Are you looking for small flower arrangements? I have a super creative way to make mini arrangements of seasonal flowers. This DIY can add a wonderful pop of color and it all starts with a small item you probably have at home.
I have never thought of myself as someone who can make a beautiful floral arrangement – I admit it. I wanted to bring some of my lavender in to enjoy and came up with a very easy way to arrange fresh flowers and you don’t need to be a pro to do it! It’s so easy and inexpensive. You can also adjust this idea for bigger arrangements.
Small Flower Arrangements supplies
For this project you will need:
- Your favorite flowers
- Scissors or desired tool for cutting flowers
- Salt/seasoning shaker (or on a bigger scale – see ideas below). These small glass jars make perfect small vases and come in several shapes and sizes from square vases to tall vases.
Small Flower Arrangements Instructions
I’m going to use a simple seasoning shaker for this small arrangement. These are perfect multi-bud vases. I got this shaker in a set of 5 for $3 at Target. I had converted the seasonings in my cabinet to look a little nicer and I had a few extras.
Count how many holes are in your shaker so you’ll know how many flowers you’ll need.
Next, you will go out and use the cutting tool of choice to cut the number of flowers to match the number of holes in your shaker.
I just used scissors for my flowers.
Here is a picture of my cut flowers. I needed eleven for my shaker.
Decide on the length you want your flowers to be based on the height of the vase and trim them to size. You will also need to pull off the leaves that are in the way of placing your flowers into the vase. I decided to pull off all the leaves from my lavender for a cleaner look.
Pull off your shaker lid and fill your shaker with water.
Place the lid back on and start putting your flowers into the holes in the shaker.
Here are all my flowers in my shaker. Feel free to trim the bottom of the stems to get the look you want.
Place your flower display somewhere in your home to enjoy. These also make great gifts or smaller vases on a table for a special occasion.
This idea could be adapted to different size shakers. You could use a sugar/red pepper size shaker, or you can even buy shaker lids to fit mason jars and use this same technique.
I placed my lavender in my bathroom and it makes me smile while I’m getting ready in the morning and evening. Did you know there are many benefits to lavender? You can find more about that at What Are the Possible Benefits of Lavender? The Must-Know Facts About the Therapeutic Plant
