I’m celebrating spring a day early with pretty, springtime centerpiece ideas. These easy, DIY flower arrangements are all made with silk (or everlasting) flowers, so though they’re quick to make, you’ll enjoy them for a long time. Any of these centerpieces would be pretty for Easter dinner, or even a bridal shower or wedding.
We’ll start with the Zinnia Flower Cubes by Diane Flowers. These Flower Cubes are similar to everyone’s favorite flower pomanders, but with a twist – they’re square. Fun! Imagine a row of these down your Easter table, or even on the head table at a wedding. I love the versatility, too – you can add candle cups and use them as candleholders, or stack two or three and make a flower column.
Diane used zinnias in yellow, cream and purple, but you could easily change this. Any flower with full petals would work, from carnations to gerbera daisies. If your flowers are smaller, you’ll need more, of course. And the colors are totally up to you.
To make a Zinnia Flower Cube, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 5” cubes
- Zinnias in yellow, cream and purple: 16 – 20 (You’ll need four for each side)
- Low-temp glue gun
- Candle cup (optional)
- Wood skewers (optional)
- Tools needed: Wire cutters or floral shears
To make the Zinnia Floral Cubes:
1. Trim the flower stems to 2”. Insert four flowers on all four sides of the cube, alternating colors. If you’re going to see the top of the cube, insert four more flowers across the top. Do not cover the bottom. The STYROFOAM Brand Foam should securely hold the flower stems in place. If you like, you can add a dab of glue to each stem as you insert it.
2. To stack the cubes, insert and glue two wooden skewers hallway into the top of the bottom cube. Add glue to the top of the cube, then carefully lower the top cube onto the wooden skewers. Let the glue dry.
3. If you’d like, insert and glue a candle cup to the top of the cube.
I have seven more pretty spring flower arrangements linked up from last year on Crafts ‘n Coffee. Click on thru for the tutorials. Enjoy! (And can I just say that I love this photo collage? It really looks like spring!)
What’s blooming in your garden right now? Crocus? Tulips? Daffodils?
