I love having and giving fresh flowers! Sometimes, though, the fancy ones are just too expensive and the supermarket bouquets just ain’t so cute. So I came up with a quick and simple little way to dress up a single supermarket bouquet and make into a whole bunch of mini bouquets! It’s the perfect project for spring—you can run around handing out little bouquets to your heart’s content.
- bouquet of flowers from the supermarket (Trader Joe’s often has a good selection.)
- fabric scraps
- baker’s twine
Step 1: Gather your materials. Try to find a supermarket bouquet that has lots of colourful flowers & a good amount of greenery, and isn’t wilting or falling apart.
Step 2: Separate your flowers into mini bouquets. For each bouquet, choose one or two blooms and a bit of greenery. Cut the stems down to about four or five inches.
Step 3: Trim off the excess leaves low on the stems of your florals. Place the stems on a square of fabric, arranged on a diagonal so that the point of the fabric is behind the tops of the blooms. Fold the bottom corner of the fabric up underneath the stems.
Step 4: Wrap the two sides of the fabric around the stems of the flowers and secure with baker’s twine. Hand out your little bouquets to friends, families, teachers—anybody who might need a little something pretty. These would also make perfect little place settings for a spring dinner tabletop!
