Tired of dark, cold winter days? Do you fancy spring? Then today I have the right DIY for you. At DEPOT there is currently a huge selection of high quality artificial flowers that can hardly be distinguished from real flowers. With their bright colors, these artificial flowers set happy and fresh accents in the house. Whether as a single branch in a stylish vase or as a floral arrangement on the table, artificial flowers beautify and enliven our home.
DIY – Spring arrangement of flowers made of artificial flowers
For this decorative idea made of artificial flowers, I made a basic structure out of wooden strips and rabbit wire. A wide variety of artificial flowers, branches and fresh flowers can be put into a decorative flower arrangement in this cuboidal wire cube. If you don’t feel like flower decorations in between, you can simply turn the cube over and use it as a basket for various utensils.
DIY instructions – flower arrangement from artificial flowers
For this DIY you need the following materials:
- Wooden strips approx.8mm: 6 x 30cm, 2x20cm, 4 × 16.5cm, 8 × 12.5cm,
- chicken wire
- Chalk color (white)
- cordless drill
- artificial flowers
And this is how it is done:
Cut wooden strips
Use a saw to cut the wooden strips to the appropriate length. If you want to save yourself this work, you can also have the wooden strips cut to size in the hardware store.
Manufacture wooden frames
A total of five wooden frames are made from the wooden slats. The wooden slats can be connected quickly and easily with a hand tacker.
Cut the rabbit rail to size
Using a pair of pliers, the rabbit grille is now cut to the size of the individual areas. The rabbit grill can also be easily attached to the wooden frame with a stapler.
Screw the surfaces together
All five surfaces are screwed together using a cordless screwdriver. This gives us a cuboid cube that is open at the bottom. If you also want to use the cube for fresh flowers, you can put a floral foam brick to put fresh flowers in the cube.
Paint the cube with chalk paint
Finally, the basic structure for our floral decoration is painted with white chalk paint.
Spring floral arrangement of artificial flowers
Now only a few flowers are missing and our colorful flower arrangement is ready. I only used artificial flowers for this decoration idea. You can of course also take fresh flowers or you can conjure up a combination of fresh cut flowers and artificial flowers, which also looks very pretty.
Material for the floral arrangement
- Eucalyptus branch
- Bunch of zinnia flowers
- Cherry blossom branch
- Stalk flower ranunculus
And this is how it is done:
These magical lanterns from DEPOT, which I chose as a companion for my spring-like flower arrangement, have the delicate effect of spring. The lanterns are available in dusky pink and green. I find the combination of these two spring-like colors particularly beautiful.
