I just got the Valentine decor and winter stems down (and the random mercury ornament that was so comfortable on the mantel I think it was reserving a spot for next year). I have a spring flower arrangement that is simple and includes a repurposed “vase.”
This floral display was headed for our family room. With lots of Colorado sunshine faux florals work best behind one of our couches.
SPRING FLOWER ARRANGEMENT
For this floral arrangement, I untangled my spring stems and grabbed my stock of dead branches (one of my favorite upcycling ideas).
I don’t like fussy decor and prefer a set it and forget it.
I grabbed a cardboard cylinder (any guesses what was in it before its career change).
Hint: I have several of these cylinders from a few Christmases ago. I painted one white and one navy and use them for floral arrangements and to store out-of-season floral stems.
FLORAL STEM TIP
Scroll down for my tip to prevent the stems from falling over. If you are a subscriber to The Weekend Edit you may remember it!
I grabbed an odd number of stems, mixed in some dead branches from the yard and set it up behind our couch in the family room. You don’t want it match-matchy.
We have this gap between the back of the couch and the DIY mantel we made last year.
The tall cylinder worked perfectly to fill in the space and add color to the Revere Pewter-painted walls.
I just got these pillow covers from Etsy.
TIP: Oh and here is the floral arrangement tip I mentioned earlier. It’s kind of a funny tip, but it works!
