SPRING floral centerpiece? “What the heck, DIYShowOff?! It’s still winter!” I know. I know! But I’m not a fan ::whine:: so let me indulge in thinking ahead to warmer days, fresh air and specifically, a spring with no snow. Okay? Okay! haha! For real, my Michaels Maker Challenge for February is “spring florals” so let’s embrace that pretty theme by collecting inspiration for the next upcoming season, starting with this gorgeous spring centerpiece! My inspiration was a spring theme around this beautiful Indigo Luxe/Aria (Celebrate It) wired ribbon: blues/indigo and navy, purples/eggplant and plum, oranges with white. Not colors I’d normally coordinate but oh my – how pretty, you guys! Right? Hey, Mr. Moss bunny thinks so! Look at his content expression…
Okay, so it might be February, but there is a breath of fresh air, happy florals and spring in the aisles of Michaels Stores! Michaels has over 1,800 blooms & greenery in their new Flower Market, including trendy succulents and real-touch flowers.
spring floral centerpiece tutorial
Materials I used:
- grapevine basket
- moss bunny
- wired ribbon (2 1/2 in. x 3 yards)
- floral tape
- optional: hot glue or twine
Tools: wire cutters
What I did: (Yes, in the event that you spy micro-fleece in the images below…I create in my pajamas. Doesn’t everyone?)
Unravel the ribbon, snip the ends to make them pretty. Get approval from the cat, then proceed to the next step.
(I cut out a “v” in the ends of mine) and find the center of the ribbon.
Starting at the spot where one side of the handle meets the basket, tuck the ribbon into the grapevine.
Repeat along each side, meeting at the other side where the handle meets the basket.
Secure ribbon to basket with hot glue or like me, simply weave twine in the ribbon loops inside the basket and tie.
Tie a bow where the ends of the ribbon meet at the handle and embellish with a flower if desired.
Using wire cutters, separate floral bundles. I have 2 pretty pre-assembled store-bought bouquets. I keep those intact and add more flowers to them for more color. Not shown: secure bouquets by winding floral tape (grab your decorative washi tape in a pinch) to bind stems.
Then tuck bouquets inside of the basket.
Nestle in a moss bunny…
Display on dining room or side table. Now it’s beginning to look like spring!
I think it’s the perfect decorative accent and spring centerpiece to display starting right after Valentine’s Day up until Memorial Day.
This smug moss bunny agrees. How about you?
Even the back side is looking good…
I’m loving the unexpected color assortment…
And know what else? I’m really tempted to head back to Michaels for all of this romantic spring decor to finishing the look. ::drool::
