Dry floral arrangements for spring in pink and yellow do it yourself

Our first idea impresses especially with the strong colors, which are also typical for spring with all its diverse flowers. So, if you want especially colorful dried floral arrangements for spring that are guaranteed to put you in a good mood, go for this idea.

  • dried plants and flowers in bright colors (you can also dye them yourself with spray paints)
  • planter/planting bowl or other container of your choice
  • Cut foam

Cut the plug foam to fit the container you’ve chosen and then place it inside. And then you are ready to start staking. Exactly how you should arrange the individual pieces depends mainly on how or where you want to display the dry floral arrangement for spring: If it will later stand against a wall, the tallest elements should be at the very back, and then the arrangement will become smaller towards the front.

However, if it will be the focal point ( for example, as a table decoration in the middle of the table), then arrange plant row and dry flowers in a circle: In the center are the tallest, around it and in the circle then distribute the next tallest and so on. In this way, you will ensure that the arrangement can be viewed from all sides, and none of the plant parts used will be hidden, but will be perfectly displayed.

So, for this example of colorful dry flower arrangements for spring, first cut the tall elements. Insert them into the foam. Once you are satisfied with the layout, move on to the next row. You can always take out elements again, exchange and / or replace them.

Finally, cut the dried flowers and plants to the desired size and stick them into the foam in any arrangement. Make sure the pieces are not too long to fit under the glass cloche.

Such balls are known as kissing ball and often decorate homes, especially at Christmas time, as a substitute for mistletoe or wreath, but are also very popular for weddings. However, we think the idea is also perfect if you want to make dry flower arrangements for spring. You can make such an interesting dry floral arrangement for spring by using either a styrofoam ball, spherical stick foam or chicken wire.

Styrofoam is a bit harder and more suitable for firmer branches. If, on the other hand, you want to use thin flower stems or other delicate plant parts, it is better to use the classic stick foam or form a ball from chicken wire, through whose meshes you then simply stick the dried flowers.
