Spring Flower DIY Bouquet & Floral Inspiration















With a little free time and inspiration, anyone can create a beautiful DIY spring bouquet.

Step One - DIY Bouquet Supplies

BloomsbytheBox Wildflower Pack - $190.64
You'll need fresh cut flowers & there are quite a few very inexpensive places to purchase them. Your local florist may be a great place to start but you should also consider warehouse stores (BJs, CostCo, Sams Club, etc.) & online flower wholesalers (BloomsbytheBox, FiftyFlowers, etc.) that can save you a lot of money.

To save even more, consider using some of the beautiful flowers in season in the spring including; Narcissus (commonly known as daffodils and available in multiple varieties), Hyacinth, Freesia (red, yellow, or pink with a sweet citrus scent), Iris (available in a multitude of colors), Paper whites, Star of Bethlehem, Sweet Pea, Alstromeria, Calla lillies, Cornflower, Delphimium, Gerbera daisies, Lilac, Lillies, Lisianthus, Peonies, Ranunculus, Roses, Snap Dragon, Stock, & Sunflowers.

You'll also need some other basic supplies including; floral shears, floral tape, bouquet or straight head pins, and a floral wrap of some kind, for example ribbon in your wedding colors.

Step Two - Prep Work

Start with removing all all the foliage from the stems of your flowers along with any thorns if you're including roses.

Cut your flowers to around the same length & sort them separately on a clean surface.

Step Three - Assembling the Arrangement

Two to three of your most stunning flowers will make up the base of the bouquet. Bunch the stems together, wrap with floral tape around one and a half inches above where you begin and around five inches of exposed stem below where you stop.

Position flowers and fillers around your base, facing it towards yourself occasionally and turning it to create the round shape you're looking for, and wrap with floral tape or thin wire as needed.

Wrap your bouquet with floral tape along the length you plan to wrap with fabric or ribbon.

Step Four - The Finishing Details

Take the ribbon you've chose and wrap the stems a little above & below where you've wrapped with floral tape - securing with bouquet pins as you go.

Trim your stems even once again and either place in water before the wedding and/or run the stems under cool water for a moment before the event.

  1. Having just got married last week, I was eager to tell everyone about this place. We had the perfect wedding, thanks to their amazing service. Most places don’t care and charge you for a lot of the things that guys at the Seattle Wedding venues were willing to help us out with.
