DIY flower arrangements aren't so tough #Decor DIY#Floral DIY#diy centerpiece#flowers January 29 | Megan Finley meggyfin Vases with narrow mouths like these eliminate the problem of arranging flowers. Just stick 'em in and get a pop of colour with no extra work! Photo by Danielle Arel Arranging centrepiece flowers yourself can save you big bucks — and it doesn't have to be complicated. Find some inspiration and some DIY floral arrangement tutorials in this here roundup, including tricks for using grocery store bouquets and thrifted finds, but still making a big impact. Paper flowers in a pot look great, but accenting them with sparkly things takes them from pretty, to pretty AWESOME! Adding non-floral accents to centrepieces goes a long way. Not to mention how great those terracotta planters look! A square vase, some vase gravel, and roses from the grocery store make this centrepiece easy to arrange and super striking. The vases themselves can be the conversation piece when they're interesting and mis-matched. Collect a bunch of glass vases of various sizes and line your flowers (real or paper) down your tables. Bonus: mis-matched, thrifted vases could double as favours! Decorating your vases makes them stand out even more. I love the addition of the charms to these DIY centerpieces. Photo by Moxie Studios.
