DIY a bouquet of roses for Easter, a teacher, your mom, or?

Today’s “Rose Bowl” centerpiece has nothing to do with football. I am sharing a super-easy, Yellow Rose Centerpiece that would be gorgeous on the Easter dinner table. (You may have noticed this pretty little bouquet in the Wallpaper Wall Art post earlier this week.) It would also make a sweet, Teacher Appreciation gift or Mother’s Day present. Need to DIY a bridal shower centerpiece? Use roses the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses for an easy wedding shower centerpiece.

Mother's Day, teacher's gift, Easter centerpiece -- there are so many reasons to make this super-easy "Rose Bowl" centerpiece. has the tutorial.

There are so many ways you could use this “Rose Bowl” centerpiece. It’s a classic!

To make a Yellow Rose Centerpiece, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 5” ball
  • Small bowl or urn, 4″ diameter opening
  • Yellow roses, various shades and sizes
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Pencil; ruler; wire cutters or floral shears

To make a Yellow Rose Centerpiece:

1. Rest foam ball on bowl or urn; using pencil, draw a line around the foam ball where it meets the rim of the bowl or urn.

2. Trim flower stems to 2″ length. Glue and insert flowers around foam ball, following the scored line. Continue adding flowers till the top half of the ball is completely covered. Do not cover the bottom of the ball.

3. Glue ball in bowl or urn.

So pretty and so easy! You can quickly make multiples for a wedding, bridal shower or other big event. Or just make one for mom or a special teacher. Easy DIY on

Yellow roses symbolize friendship, joy and good health.

And touchdown! You’re done! (Too corny, right? I really tried to hold back on the football analogies, like “Draft this Centerpiece . . .” Sometimes, it’s hard to stop.)

Are you already planning your Easter dinner? What’s on the menu? I think I’m hosting the dinner this year, and I’m looking for suggestions.

Happy crafting.
