spring floral centerpiece

Bring a little sunshine into your home with this Spring-inspired centerpiece. Check out the simple instructions!
Step 1
Apply a thin coat of chalk paint over the galvanized container with a dry paintbrush. Let dry.
Step 2

Cut blocks of floral foam to fill the inside of the container. Use hot glue to reinforce the hold inside the container, if needed.

TIP: Build your arrangement from the bottom; then work it out and up to get the multi-direction look featured.

Step 3
Cut apart some stems of eucalyptus leaves and place them around the base of the arrangement. Pull the stems over the edges so they look as if they are drooping down.
Step 4
Measure and cut some hydrangeas to fill the middle of the arrangement close to the floral foam. This will help hide the foam without needing to add any additional filler(s).
Step 5
Continue to fill in around the edges of the container with purple thistle and Baby’s Breath. Cut apart the bushes and bend their stems to drape around the sides.
Step 6
Shape the arrangement by adding long-stemmed flowers to the sides, such as the Magnolias, Dahlias, ranunculus and peonies. Keep the shape loose and natural. Use your fingers to make a slight curve in the stems, as they would drape in nature.
Step 7
Start to fill in the center with more thistle, larger blooms and fun pops of green and hot pink to draw attention.
Step 8
Make finishing touches by adding some taller stems that are unique but in the same color palette.
Step 9
Lastly, take a photo with your phone to look at your entire arrangement. If you see any holes, you can make any adjustments needed.
