Happy Friday!!

Today is the last Friday I’ll be sharing easy flower arrangement ideas!  I’ve had so much fun coming up with 4 flower arrangements and I hope I’ve inspired you to create some, too!

week 1 | week 2 | week 3 | week 4 (you’re here)

For the first arrangement, I used a vintage milk jug, some roses, and peonies to make the prettiest farmhouse style centerpiece!

Then, I shared an easy farmhouse fall centerpiece using just one type of flower.  But, those peonies make such a statement don’t they?!

Last week, I switched it up a bit with a DIY 5 Bottle Wooden Farmhouse Style Centerpiece.  This may be my favorite one yet!

See how I used a scrap 2x4 board and transformed it into a simple wooden farmhouse style centerpiece using 5 blue glass vases.  Add in some beautiful silk roses and you have a gorgeous, easy centerpiece!

For this week, I’m sticking with the DIY theme and making a crazy easy wooden box perfect for a farmhouse neutral floral centerpiece!

Supplies:

Flowers:

How To Build The Box…

To build the box we used the miter saw to cut the board into

  • 2 x 18 in pieces (sides)
  • 1 x 16 1/2 in piece (bottom)
  • 2 x 3 3/4 in pieces (ends)

Lay the bottom piece flat and use the nail gun to nail one long side piece into the bottom piece.  Then, fit the smallest pieces (the ends) in between the side boards.  Use the nail gun again (and a square!) to nail the end pieces in (2 nails on each side).  Last, nail the second side piece into the bottom/end pieces.

We left the nails visible since this was a rustic box.  I finished it up with a coat of Natural wood stain which just brings out the grains in the wood.

How To Make The Flower Arrangement…

I started by cutting down the floral foam to fit inside the box.  It would have been better if the foam actually just fit in the box but I just used what I had on hand.

I laid out all the flowers I was using.  It’s easier to see what you’re doing when you have everything out in front of you.

I picked all white or cream colored flowers.  This centerpiece is definitely neutral!  But, the best part is it can be used year round.

First, I added in all the greenery.  Make sure to spread everything out!

{I kept the eucalyptus mostly at the ends of the box and used the lamb’s ear in the center}

Next, I filled in the rest of the box with all the cream and white flowers!  I used peonies, roses, and ranunculus blooms.  Lastly, I filled in some gaps with baby’s breath.

And, that was it!  I didn’t really have a specific idea of what I wanted this to look like.  Basically, I wanted a LOT of blooms and a LOT of neutral.  I think I achieved that 🙂

This is actually the centerpiece I use day to day on our dining room table.  But, I think it could be “fancy” enough to use for special occasions, too!

The wooden box is the perfect neutral farmhouse piece for all the flowers and greenery.  It compliments the flowers so well!

I think I had the most fun designing this centerpiece!  It was so therapeutic to make.

I think I said this in a previous post but making flower arrangements is like an art.  There’s no right or wrong way.  You may take the exact some flowers/box I used and make something completely different.  And that’s okay!  Experiment and make your own and make it {{YOU}}.

If you’re looking for a farmhouse style arrangement, you can’t go wrong with peonies, roses, and seeded eucalyptus.  I think those are pretty much the basis of all farmhouse arrangements.

A HUGE thank you to my friend for letting me use her dining room for all of these flower arrangement posts!  It’s much more photogenic than ours (as we currently are using a folding table as our dining room table!).

Enjoy your 3 day weekend!

    So beautiful! Where did you get the woven placemats? I’ve been looking for some just like that!

    Oh, this is so very lovely! You did such a good job on the box… i have no tools, so had to buy mine (on clearance of course, LOL). It came with peonies but still looks very sad. Seeing your masterpiece, made me realize i need to add greenery. Did you get the seeded eucalyptus and lamb’s ear from Afloral, too?

      Yes! I got all of the flowers and greenery from Afloral. I absolutely looooveee their seeded eucalyptus. I think it looks the most real by far from any I’ve seen. I recently went to Michaels and it looks like they’ve upped their flower game so you could check there, too!
