Flowers are an instant way to freshen your home. I love having flowers in my home and visit the flower markets here in Brisbane regularly. Simple flower arrangements placed around your home, when treated well, will last for at least a week, often two. Like to know more about how to make your own flower arrangements? I’ve spent some time searching for some simple tutorials to help you create your own.
DIY Flower Arrangements
The girls over at DIY Decorator have excelled themselves with many posts on how to style flowers for your home.
Do you have some old bottles or jars lying around? Why not use them as vases as show here on DIY Decortator.
A gorgeous arrangement like this is simple when the DIY Decorator girls show you how. This lovely Mothers Day arrangement would look great in any home.
Ever thought about putting flowers into a skull? Nope, me either, but this tutorial over on Pop Sugar could be done in any vessel of your choice if the skull is not your cup of tea 🙂
My Domaine has a great step by step guide on how to create the perfect Autumn bunch. Perfect for this time of year.
Everyones favourite Martha Stewart, has many tutorials on her website to show you how to create your own masterpiece at home.
For an uncomplicated, cost effective alternative, why not go for a little walk around your neighbourhood and find some foliage that could be used. Foliage is particularly pretty during Autumn and Spring as the colours change and then new buds arrive.
Are you a fan of fresh flowers? Ever had a go at arranging them yourself? Do you have a favourite flower?
