Who’s ready for an easy floral centrepiece? me! This has been quite the spring, and while we’re all trying to find a day-to-day that works, I’m not ready to give up on the small things like a good tablescape. Although I don’t have a fancy table setting for easter this year, I d have an easy floral centrepiece that won’t wilt, and is casual enough for the everyday.
Boxwoods are a classic, and daisies are always fresh. Add in some butterflies and bunnies with sunnies, and you’ve got my attention.
This project is dead easy if you know how to use a glue gun.
Easy Spring Floral Centrepiece
Although shopping in stores may be tricky, you may have items like these already around the house (or in the garage, but you can also order them online too).
How to make an easy boxwood floral arrangement
You’ll need faux boxwood topiary balls, silk flowers, paper butterflies, scissors, and a hot glue gun.
I love daisies for this project, but couldn’t find enough in stores, so I mixed-in these cheery pink poppies. I got three distinct colours, and used one per ball.
Start by pulling the flower heads from the arrangements.
Next, using your hot glue gun, put a dollop of glue on the stem of the flower, and nestle it into the boxwood.
You can use a grid for placing the flowers, or you can place them all willy nilly. I did a bit of both to fill the orbs.
Once you’ve added flowers to each of your boxwood balls, add a butterfly or two. You’ll likely find these in the flower arrangement section of your local craft store.
I then placed them in a few tin basins that I had, so that they don’t roll away when on the table.
Making it an easter centrepiece
Bunnies – there you have it. With or without the bunnies, you’ve got an adorable set-up. I think they add to the playfulness and make it a worthy easter centrepiece.
