Whether you’re thinking about an upcoming wedding or just looking for a pretty small flower bouquet, this DIY flower idea is adorable and easy to recreate. But more than that, this is probably one of my favorite floral ideas because it’s also extremely affordable. And it’s no secret that I have kind of a love affair with flowers, so that’s really saying something – from ideas for small flower arrangements to a list of my favorite flower arrangements to create beautiful flower arrangements every time.

Often, the only downside to making flower arrangements at home is that it can get expensive fast. And for some reason I am most attracted to flowers that are expensive.

But I love a budget challenge as much as the next DIY girl, so I try to bring you affordable flower projects as often as possible. You know, when I’m not covering three-foot-tall flower ampersands in Piano Garden roses or building a flower pendant light covered in calla lilies and dahlias.

That’s why, I’m happy to report that today’s flower DIY pretty much takes the cake on the budget scale. It costs $2 to make! And the flowers are store-bought, not plucked from my imaginary garden. The trick is to use filler flowers instead of larger flowers and keep them small. tiny.

How to make a small bouquet of flowers

1. Cut off the stem and peel off the leaves.

Cut 5-6 small shoots from large clusters of each type of flower and separate the leaves from each stem.

2. Arrange flowers.

Using a combination of Solidago and Montecasino, create a Small A bouquet that is shaped like two clenched fists. I used the same method to make the arrangement as I did with my mini bouquet tutorial.

3. Tie the bouquet.

Tie the vase stems with rope to keep the flowers in place.

4. Cut the paper.

Next, cut a long rectangle out of newspaper that is about three times the size of your vase.

5. Compose a message.

Using marker, write a message to your would-be bridesmaid on a newspaper clipping and ask her if she would like to join your wedding party.

6. Wrap it.

Now, wrap the bouquet in newspaper, hide the message inside the bouquet and tie it with another piece of thread.

When friends or family open the vase to drop the flowers into the water, the newspaper message will appear.

My favorite part about these little flower bouquets, besides the price, is the secret message. These little bundles make a nice surprise for whoever you decide to give them. Once the newspaper is unwrapped from the bouquet, the message is revealed. Wonder!

I think these little wrapped arrangements would be great alternatives to standard thank you cards, valentines gift ideas/greeting cards, weddings, etc.
