A few weeks ago we shared how to make a Flower Arrangement with flowers from your garden.
Certainly, I was surprised at how popular it was.
Creating a flower arrangement is easy if you follow a few simple guidelines.
While decorating Steph’s home for fall we found this vintage train case she had purchased a while back.
And we thought it would make a fun container for a Simple Sunflower Arrangement.
Not only is this a quick DIY project, but it’s easy on the budget too.
The only thing Steph purchased for this sunflower arrangement was the sunflowers.
So, for only $10 she created this beautiful fall sunflower arrangement that will last for years to come.
For this simple sunflower arrangement you will need:
- sunflower bush
- wild grasses
- mini pumpkins
- spanish moss
- plastic shopping bags
We went to Michaels for most of our supplies.
Not only do they have lots of choices of sunflowers, but they also have the basic floral supplies you need like styrofoam and moss.
In addition, the wild grasses were growing along side the road.
So they were FREE! You’ve gotta love free!
Pro tip: The grasses will last for weeks or months in your home if you spray them with a little hair spray shortly after cutting them.
Finally the mini pumpkins we used in this sunflower arrangement were from Steph’s Fall Decorating Ideas on a Dime.
Clearly selecting a unique container for your sunflower arrangement adds to the fun of this project.
I believe Steph purchased her vintage train case at the Vintage Market last spring.
However, check your local thrift store or Facebook Market place. Also we linked to a few cases on Etsy.
But, now’s the time to get those creative juices flowing and think outside the box.
How about using an old picnic basket or an old toolbox as a container?
In fact, a vintage crate or a small old drawer would also be fun.
Just get those creative juices flowing and comment below what you’d like to use as a container for a simple sunflower arrangement.
