DIY Faux Flowers (video)

August 27, 2014

Hello everyone!  Hope you’re having a wonderful week.  Sometimes you just need an easy craft project and that’s what I’m sharing today– an easy and inexpensive project that will have you never wanting to buy a faux flower arrangement again.


I love flowers in my home.  I wish I had a personal florist who would water and check on and switch out fresh flowers daily like a hotel (wouldn’t that be the life!) but instead, I usually mix real and faux arrangements.  In my kitchen I wanted a large arrangement for the island but after pricing some, I thought I could make one for a lot less.  Today I’m showing you how to make these DIY faux flowers.

I get asked about this arrangement all the time– everyone wants to know where I got it, or sometimes people touch it because they think it’s real.  You can whip these babies up in under an hour– here is how, via video.

This technique works for so many different types of arrangements.  I’m always keeping an eye out for pretty faux flowers!

    How big is the round vase and do you remember how large the flowers are? (trying to buy online)

      Hi there! I’m sorry, I don’t remember but they were on the larger size. Large peonies and the bowl was like a fish bowl size. Hope that helps! Thanks for reading!
