Flower decorating can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be—all you need is a little creative inspiration and these 9 budget-friendly flower decorating projects.
Somewhere along the way?
I decided I was all about the word “amazing.”
At last count, I think there were 56 “amazings” on my social media yesterday. I go to type something and the word amazing flows off my fingertips onto the screen.
Sometimes I go rogue and use the word incredible instead.
I can’t help it. It’s such a great word because it sounds like the verbal equivalent of an exclamation point.
But I am a writer. I’m supposed to have a bigger writing vocabulary. I’m supposed to branch out and expand my word horizons.
So today? I found 41 synonyms for “amazing” including: prodigious, astonishing, awe-inspiring, beautiful, breathtaking, daunting, fantastic, formidable, imposing, impressive, inspiring, magnificent, majestic, moving, overwhelming, striking, stunning, stupefying, wonderful, awesome and wondrous.
And I actually plan on using every single one in conversation.
Looking for a few stupefying flower decor ideas?
I’m using my new vocabulary to share a few creative ideas and simple tips on how to decorate with flowers (most of them using things you have around the house).
9 Budget-Friendly Flower Decorating Ideas
1. Fill a basket with flowers
This is a magnificent flower decorating idea.
Just fill a hanging basket.
I just bought one of these at Magnolia Market down in Waco.
I tucked a tiny vase in the bottom of the basket, filled it with water and added flowers.
Simple decorating tip: if you have a basket like this that doesn’t hang? Just knot a rope and tie it through the handles.
2. Fill a watering can with flowers
You probably have one of these sitting outside in your garden shed or back porch right now.
It’s been waiting for spring to arrive.
Add a small vase or mason jar to the inside of the can and fill it with flowers.
Doesn’t it look prodigious?
3. Add an embroidery hoop for height
Embroidery hoops aren’t just for needlework anymore.
Here, I used the hoop to wrap greenery around to give this breathtaking arrangement height.
Here’s how to create this arrangement using a few simple tips and a shopping trip through your sewing closet.
4. Keep it simple
Sometimes all it takes is one astounding flower to make a small difference.
I painted the back of this bookcase Naval SW 6244 and added milk glass and ONE tiny vase of flowers.
Sometimes one simple vase makes more of a statement than a symphony of flowers.
5. Fill a toolbox
This arrangement literally takes five minutes.
Five heart-stirring, incredible minutes.
All you need is a random assortment of bottles and a grocery store bouquet.
Add the flowers to the bottles and fill the toolbox and your arrangement is ready for spring.
6. Fill a dough bowl
This is just a simple dough bowl that I filled with this breathtaking arrangement of jasmine.
It smells like spring just pulled a seat up to the table.
I found these at Trader Joe’s and they come in pots, so they lasted for about a month. Just make sure you put plastic liners down before you add the pots.
decorating tip: decorate with pots of flowers instead of cut flowers to make your arrangements last longer.
7. Peony and hydrangea arrangement
I have a extraordinary announcement.
Peony season will be here before we know it.
My favorite flower on the planet. Just curious. How do you say peony? This is how I say it—“Pee-oh-nee.”
However you say it—peonies and hydrangeas create an amazing flower arrangement.
8. Make a wood twig vase
All you need for this project is a glass vase and some twigs from the yard.
It’s a phenomenal idea for a fantastic flower arrangement.
9. Make coffee filter roses
I added this last one in case it was snowing where you are and you couldn’t get out to get flowers.
No worries friend. I got you.
You can make these flowers with the remarkable coffee filters from your pantry.
I did it.
I made it through the post without an overabundance of amazings.
It was hard. It was tough. It was vocabulary-challenging. But I expanded my vernacular today.
I wouldn’t want to live in a world without amazing and I think we could all use a little more of it right now….
…along with a few of its stupefying synonyms. 🙂
PS Remember when I created this arrangement from real and these faux hydrangeas and I had you guess which were the real and the faux hydrangea? They LOOK so real in real life (the second one is the faux hydrangea).
You all sold them out and they were out of stock FOREVER and now they are back in stock.
You can see the faux hydrangea here.
