Some brave little blossoms are finally starting to poke their hopeful heads out of the soil here in the Northeast, which means it’s the perfect time for us to think about creative flower arrangements. In our most recent Web-surfing session, we turned up these five inspiration and DIY ideas. To get the most out of them, check out House Beautiful’s guide to the most popular flowers for each month of spring, then start adapting these projects to your favorites.
Our jaws dropped when we saw this floral arrangement, part of a sparkly tablescape created by the fabulous Ashley and co. of Sugar & Cloth. We love the mix of texture in the flowers, but the pineapple vase? Perfection.
This adorable vase just makes us smile. Using only some colored cord, a glass vessel, an elastic, and a handful of your favorite spring flowers, you can brighten up any room with one or a grouping of these hanging vases. The tutorial includes a great visual guide to making those decorative Josephine and gathering knots.
Sometimes you just want to shout out loud, and the beginning of new (hopefully much warmer) season is just the occasion. This arrangement uses artificial flowers, perfect for areas where the blooms are only just beginning, but you could make a smaller version with real blooms from the supermarket and some floral pins from the craft store.
Featuring peony, ranunculus, paperwhite, and some dramatic dogwood branches, this table topper has a sprawling, organic look with a showy central bloom. It’s deceptively simple-looking, with a laid-back, rustic feel.
A simple, 6-step DIY on making these sweet floral crowns—perfect for weddings, girls’ birthday parties, and even just for weekend fun (selfies, anyone?). The best part? You can use pretty much any type of spring flower, though we love this mix of rosemary, hellebore, cherry blossom, primrose, and rosemary.
