5 Minute Floral Arrangements

Add a little life to your home decor quickly, easily, and inexpensively by making your own 5 minute floral arrangements.

Quick and Easy Floral Arrangements

When we can’t find any signs of spring outside yet, it’s ok to fake it right?

Besides, I’m not the best at keeping house plants alive. (Tell me I’m not the only one!) I can force a bulb or two (check out my current amaryllis “race” on Instagram) but if someone gives me a ficus, that poor thing is bound to die of neglect a few months down the road.  In fact, I’ve been known to purposely kill a plant or two when I got sick of watering them.  Give me automatic sprinklers any day.

When I want to add a little color or greenery to my home decor, I almost always go for the stuff I can buy at the craft store.

Containers for 5 Minute Floral Arrangements

Aren’t those containers cute?

It’s my turn to host to host Bunco in March and my mom has been itching to have some girl time out shopping together so last weekend we headed out to find some Bunco prizes at a couple of my favorite places for home decor inspiration.  Not only did we come home with a few things for the Bunco ladies, I couldn’t help but get inspired to make some quick floral arrangements for myself.

Tiny Teacup

I particularly fell in love with this tiny teacup with the ruffled saucer.

And these succulents.  Super realistic looking right?

Succulents in home decor are everywhere the last couple of years and I have yet to hop on the band wagon.  Figured this was as good a chance as any.

Just 4 steps to Make Your Own 5 Minute Floral Arrangements

Need a tutorial?  Naw, probably not, but I was in the mood to put together a quick infographic for you anyway.  😉

Make your own 5 Minute Floral Arrangement in Just 4 Steps

  1.  find a container
  2. add floral foam (I like to use the kind you can add water to, not the styrofoam blocks).  If you cut it to fit snugly in the container there is no need to glue it in.  I love that.  In case I’m ever in the mood to change out the arrangement or use the container without the arrangement, I can just slide the foam out again.Make Your Own Tiny Teacup Planter
  3. cover foam with moss.  I do use the hot glue gun on this step to attach the moss to the foam.  Cuts down on mess later and keeps it in place so you never see the foam.DIY Tiny Teacup Planter
  4. add your floral stems

Succulent in a Tiny Teacup

See?  Cute and easy (my Big Two when it comes to crafting!)  In less than 5 mintues I had this adorable floral arrangement.

 

Teacup Succulent

I had plenty of the succulent left to work with, so I used it again in a second container.  Same process as the teacup.

Less than 5 minutes people – have I mentioned that?!?

And to change it up.  I added flowers to the little blue flower pot.

Easy and Inexpensive Floral Home Decor

In under half an hour I had almost half a dozen floral arrangements (that’s right – I haven’t shown a couple of them to you yet.  Stay tuned!).  It seriously took me longer to photograph everything than to put together the 5 minute floral arrangements.  Probably spent less than $20 on all of them too.
