The best ideas come when you least expect them. While visiting my local craft store, I stumbled upon an adorable white ceramic jug (50% off, mind you!) and knew I had to make something springy out of it. One beautiful hydrangea stem, complementary flowers and package of green moss later… and this beautiful vignette was born.
In all, this DIY project took me 10 minutes from start to finish. For supplies, you’ll need
- 1 ceramic jug or other container (e.g. mason jar, small vase)
- 1 stem of a hydrangea
- 1 stem of a burlap rose or other large flower
- 1 bunch of small wild flowers
- Wire cutters
- 1 package green moss (fake it: use green crinkle paper)
Ready to get started?
First, use the wire cutters to trim the flower stems. To cut to the perfect height, use the jug as guidance. I cut mine to about 6-8 inches. If any of the flowers came with pretty leaves, pick them off and save them!
Next, fill the jug halfway with the green moss and add the hydrangea stem. If you accidentally cut your stems too short, just add more moss to the bottom of the jug. No one will ever know.
Fill in the rest with the remaining flowers. Play around and have fun with it. There’s no one perfect “look,” just whatever speaks to you!
Once you deem the stems are perfectly placed, add the accent leaves (if you have them). Top it off with a handful of moss to cover exposed stems.
Now place your gorgeous DIY spring accent somewhere you’ll walk past 1,872,409 times a day to gawk and adore.
