The Flowers... DIY

DIY Flower Ideas

ANYONE... I promise you, anyone can do this arrangement!

Supplies: 4 Dozen Grocery Store Roses(yes, these very roses are from the grocery store), Tall Vase(from a craft store), Rubber Bands, Sticks(from your yard) and any type of decorative ribbon or crinkly paper!

Directions: Fill the vase with water and looooong thin sticks. You need to allow the sticks to soak up water so they will bed around your vase. I suggest letting them soak for about an hour. Then poor out the water, bend your sticks around your vase and then add fresh water!DIY Flower Ideas Now, cut the stems and leaves off all your roses and begin creating a ball of roses with 3 of the dozen and tie with rubber bands until you have one big mass! Stick your rose ball into the tap of your vase and wow... AMAZING! Now with the remaining dozen, fill in any gaps! So simple and inexpensive with a BIG WOW FACTOR!

I really wanted the arrangement to have a rustic yet chic feel, for the rose stems to look like they are wrapping around the vase! Gosh, I love flowers!

Let me know if any of you try this arrangement!
