DIY: Faux Floral Arrangement

I love being surrounded by flowers. Whether I’m inside or outside, the array of colors and depth that flowers display always brings me a smile. A few years ago I was looking for a cute little floral arrangement for my Paris room. I wanted a variety of different pinks to contrast my almost completely black and white room. I did a little shopping for some floral arrangements and soon came to realize that these things are expensive. The more natural and delicate looking the arrangement the bigger the price tag. I refused to pay for something that looked fairly easy and simple to make myself. I went shopping at my local craft store and then I got to work.

I was able to create my own floral arrangement that looked like a came directly from an interior decorator display. I was quite impressed with how my arrangement came out and how simple the entire process was.

Being that Valentines Day is right around corner and also to observe my local Michael’s store grand opening, I thought this would be the perfect time share this DIY project. You can make this project as a gift for your someone special or yourself.
