Simple DIY Dollar Tree Flower Arrangement

Who doesn’t love a DIY? I love a quick and easy DIY, but if it is going to take too much time, count me out. Is it just me or is there something really exciting about creating a masterpiece yourself (and saving money while doing it)?

I was at Dollar Tree the other days and found a few things that I knew would make a really pretty flower display for my front room. How can I turn down things that aren’t over $1 each? I am going to show you, step by step, how I put together my new flower display for under $10!

What Did I Buy?

 1. I picked up a few bunches of flowers that I wanted to fill my display with. I ended up getting 4 total. 

 2. Flower tin. How cute is this galvanized metal pail that I found? It is perfect for DIY flowers! 

 3. These foam block come in a few different sizes. This one fit perfectly inside of my display. These are perfect to keep your flowers in place. 

 3. Sponges. I have these around all the time. Dollar Tree frequently has small packages made up of different sized sponges.

4. This is everything that I used. You will notice there is white chalk paint. This is not something I picked up from Dollar Tree, I found it at a local discount store and had it already. You can pick up chalk paint and anywhere from Home Depot to Walmart.

Putting It Together

Guys! It literally took me under 30 minutes to put my entire arrangement together! Can’t beat that!

I decided I wanted my container to be chalk white and not the galvanized metal since it matched the mirror frames in the room I wanted to put my arrangement in. I used my sponge to simply spread the paint all over the outside of the container. It dried really quickly so don’t let any spots clump up.

Next, I put my foam block inside of my painted container. It fit perfectly! Also, don’t worry if there is some paint on the inside of the container – your flowers will cover all of this.

Now, I separated my flowers. I did’t add the entire bunch, I cut individual flowers and stuck them into the foam block. There is no particular way to do this, just add them and fill it out to your liking. I mixed in yellow and different white flowers. Along with that, I added a few leafy mixtures into this. 

That is literally it! After that, your DIY flower arrangement is complete! Now, figure out where you you want to display it at and put it out!

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
