Easy DIY Flower Arrangement

Crafts | February 20, 2020



I had some beautiful white roses from Valentine’s Day that my husband had given me that had a lot of life still in them. They just needed a little refreshing, and after a few simple steps, this arrangement breathed new life into them. If you have flowers on hand already or want to grab some inexpensive ones from the grocery store, you can create a lovely flower arrangement with these three steps! Let’s go!


I am so excited to share with you all how to arrange flowers in three easy steps! It really is that simple, and along the way I’ll be sharing some tips I learned all the way back from my college days when i took a flower arranging class! This step-by-step tutorial will have your flowers looking beautifully arranged in no time! Plus, at the end, I am joining alongside several other bloggers who are sharing their gorgeous spring flower arrangements too. Let’s get started!



These lovely white roses were a wonderful gift from my husband for Valentine’s Day! As you can see, after a week, they needed to have a refresh because they still had plenty of life left in them. I decided to take this more formal looking arrangement and turn it into a full, smaller arrangement. For this look, grab any vessel similiar to the one I used (mine was concrete). It can be a white pitcher, terra cotta pot, galvanized metal piece, anything! No need to go buy something new!



  1. Vessel

  2. Floral Tape

  3. Scissors

  4. Flowers

Step One


The easiest way to keep flowers in the position you set them in is to create a grid with floral tape (if you don’t have any, just grab some scotch tape!). The grid does not have to be perfect, but rather a tool to use when placing greenery and flower stems in your vessel. And, it keeps them in place! Make sure not to go to crazy with the tape on the sides of your vessel, you don’t want it to show when you are done.

Step Two


Next up, grab the greenery that came with the flowers! I do not use the baby’s breath, but you can if you like the look of it. I only used the green leaf stems. Pull off the excessive leaves that would go inside the vessel before placing into one of the grid spaces. I just placed several around to have it where you could see the greenery from any angle. You want your greenery to be pointed out, not up.

Step Three


Lastly, you get to add the beautiful flowers! Start from the outside of the grid and move inward. Again, you want the outside flowers to be facing outward not straight up and down. Work your way towards the middle, filling in the holes as you go. It helps to stand up and make sure things are looking good! Once you get to the middle, it’s okay to have the flowers facing upward.

Tip: Remove all leaves and other stems from the flowers. It will make for a cleaner look!


And, it’s all done! How easy was this flower arrangement, but didn’t it turn out lovely? I am glad to be able to keep enjoying these gorgeous flowers for more days to come. It was a completely free arrangement, which is even better! I hope you feel inspired to give it a go now too! Now it’s time to go check out all my talented friends arrangements. I know you are going to love them.
