How to Make Floral Craft Arrangements

Overview

Making your own floral craft arrangements can be very satisfying and inexpensive, especially if using flowers straight from your garden. Fresh floral arrangements are always a welcome touch to any home decor or when decorating for a special occasion. These floral craft arrangements are perfect for an Easter get together and can be given to your guests as a keepsake for after wards.

Step 1

Place a plastic liner into a grapevine bird nest to keep the soil from falling out through the bottom. Fill the liner with at least three to four-inches of potting soil.

Step 2

Select flowering spring bulbs such as daffodils and tulips to use in your arrangements. Choose small four-inch potted flowers and carefully dig the bulbs up using a small trowel or spoon. Allow three plants per bird nest.

Step 3

Group three plants together off center in each bird nest and plant the bulbs down into the soil. Cover the bulbs with soil and firm the soil with your hands. Water the newly planted flowers lightly to just moisten the soil.

Step 4

Place craft moss over the top of the bird nest to cover the soil; mound up over the edges. Place two to three colored Easter eggs on top of the moss to the side of the flowers. Set the arrangements on a table for decoration.
