DIY Flowers – Home Improvement Thursday

DIY Flowers – Home Improvement Thursday

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.

A really simple guide for this citrus flower arrangement, can be found over on Hello Glow.


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?

  1. Great post. I’ve never thought of putting flowers in a skull. It’s not really my cup of tea, but shows you can get quite creative with flowers and can place them anywhere really.

  2. I am definitely a ‘flowers in a jar / bottle’ person. It looks really vintage. So many great ideas. Thanks for the inspiration. I too, loved Sarah’s post about the creative instagram. I downloaded the app ‘Giant Square’ – just deciding what image to use. I am also loving the library space Erin has created for her family. It looks very inviting.

    1. I love Erin’s library! Such a lovely space. xx

  3. Ugh, I love, love, love fresh flowers in my house. This is such an enticement to me. Haha.

    1. Me too! Totally changes the feel of a home for me xx

  4. I like what they did with the vitamin bottles the coloured glass looks like vintage vases ?

    1. Me too! So clever!!

  5. Omgosh those flower skulls ROCK. Yup huge fan of fresh flowers here.. although I have been known to use fakeys here and there too xx

    1. Fakeys come I real handy when I can’t get to the flower market, that and foliage xx

  6. I love these, especially the DIY decorator bottles. I might have to try that one out.
    Thanks for sharing my linkup too lovely lady.
    I won’t link up today, I’m off topic, but I’ll be back next week, have a great weekend.

    1. I love that idea, hadn’t come across anything like that before. See you next week. xx

  7. Love,love,love flowers in the house, lilies and tulips are my faves, although I don’t usually arrange them myself. That citrus arrangement is super cute!

    1. Lilies are a staple here, so simple to arrange. I’m not very good at arranging them decoratively but can do something simple. x
