This spring inspired DIY decor idea couldn't be more simple! Although arrangements such as these are usually seen at weddings, there is no reason not to have a few around your house! This unconventional alternative to flower arrangements can be a permanent fixture if you use fake flowers!

  • Real, or silk flowers

  2. Cover the bottom of the container with your vase filler. Make sure to fill the vase a few layers thick
  3. Using the vase filler to anchor your flower, center it in the container. Its okay if it flops over!
  4. Pour disilled water SLOWLY into the container, making sure not to disturb the vase filler holding your flower in place. Distilled water should prevent bubbles from forming!
  5. If you need to/want to adjust the pedals, use some tweezers so as not to disturb the water too much!
