DIY Flower Arrangements To Try During The Lockdown

 After the global pandemic, people don’t prefer to visit a bouquet store in Dubai. Moreover, many flower stores have also shut down their physical stores from the city. Are you running out of ideas on how to make flower arrangements at home?

Don’t worry; here, I will share some exciting ideas for DIY floral arrangements. For that, you need different types of flowers, rubber bands, ribbons, and other essentials, which you can order from online flower delivery Dubai. In this article, I have listed the flower names and explained the steps to make an attractive flower arrangement at home.

Try These DIY Floral Arrangement At Home

When you visit a bouquet store in Dubai, you may have found that florists make attractive bouquets within minutes. Well, you can also try these do-it-yourself flower arrangements at home.

Simple DIY Bouquet

To make a simple DIY bouquet, you need Purple Dahlias, Earl Grey roses, and Ruscus flowery plants. For making an accurate bouquet size, make it one and half times of the container. Remove the thorns and leaves of the flowers that will prevent bacteria.

Next, you can blow the center of the rosebud gently to open up quickly. It helps the bud to breathe and increases the size of the bloom. Make sure that you keep it away from heat and sunlight.

Floral Arrangement for Bursting Summer

It’s one of the best floral arrangements in Dubai. You need different types of flowers and greeneries, including Delphinium, Hydrangea, Jasmine, Roses, and Greeneries.

For this arrangement, you need to add some greenery to the container to hide the stems. Prepare a grid with the help of tape; it will hold the flowers in a small container. Wrapping the flowers and greeneries with tape is one of the easiest ways to make an arrangement with only fewer flowers.

When you are creating a grid with tape over the mouth of the vase, consider the number of stems you will be using for the bouquet. Before you put the flowers and greeneries into the vase, wrap the mouth of the vase by hiding the edges of the tape that you used to make the grid lines.

Wild Beauty Floral Arrangement

For making a wild beauty floral arrangement, you need spray roses and greeneries. Bring flowers of a single color or two at maximum and combine with two types of greeneries. While choosing greeneries, go with a hardier and a lighter.

While designing, make one side higher and let it overturn the other to look like a slightly S-curve design. Arrange the greeneries in the container before you add the flowers. Although it seems counter-intuitive, it will give a wild look to the floral arrangement. Add more greeneries to the container so that it will hold the flowers in position.

Lush Bouquet

The lush bouquet is one of the best floral arrangements that you can do-it-yourself. You need Dahlias, Chrysanthemums, and flowery plants to make this floral arrangement. If you don’t find these flowers, you can buy them from different online flower stores.

When you are making this arrangement, ensure that you add different types of grasses and greeneries for texture. Combine lighter flowers with deeper reds to make a lush centerpiece bouquet.

Farm-Stand Flora

It may be a little expensive floral arrangement as you need a good quality container. However, you can go with a neutral palette, which may not cost you much. You can choose from a variety of flowers and flowery plants, including Celosia, Zinnia, Cosmos, etc.

Choose darker foliage and add bare branches in the container with the flowers to give it an attractive look. You can order all of these items online if you don’t find them on a farm stand.

Final Words

Hopefully, you have learned about different DIY floral arrangements that you can arrange at home easily. Consider these factors while making a flower bouquet for any occasion.

You can try other floral arrangements by experimenting with different flowers and greeneries. If you have ever made any bouquets at your home, please share them in the comments section.

Play Doh Flower Counting Activity

Make counting and learning early math tons of fun for little ones with this hands on activity that combines early math with hands on tactile play. 

Play doh is the ultimate tool for play or learning at my house. We love to squish, mold and create with it, plus there are so many ways to learn with it. Adding it into our math lessons was a natural choice.

I was looking for a way to get Harper excited about early math, but it is hard to focus in the spring. There are so many colors, sights and smells to take in after months of indoor confinement.
As I took in the sights of spring, my inspiration was blooming all around me.

Flower Garden Sensory Bin

Flowers are so much fun for little hands! Harper loves to pick them, plant them and even pull the weeds. I made a fun flower garden sensory bin for her and this super simple bin has not disappointed Harp at all!

Affiliate links are included

Dried black beans
Artificial flowers
Sand toys

Pour the dried black beans into the container.
Add Terracotta Pots and artificial flowers.
Offer a variety of tools to explore the beans with. Plastic serving tongs, sand toys
like shovels and rakes, kitchen spoons and small gardening spades are all fun options for
small hands. I chose items that would fit into the container with the lid for easy clean up and storage.
This is a sensory bin your little ones will want to play with many more times.
With supervision allow your child to explore the beans, the tools and plant the flowers.

    This bin was so simple. But, the best things in life usually are.

    As I put the bin out, Harp was ready to start gardening right away. Rolf heard the beans being poured into a pot and he exclaimed "I love these bins!"

    He naturally wanted to play too. Harper was more than happy to share her flower garden with Rolf.

    The kids loved the sound the beans made when poured into the pots. They also like the smoothness of the beans.

    To make it even more realistic, I later added a drop of rose to a few flowers and jasmine to a few others to add the fun of fragrance to the bin.

    Wen playtime was over it was simple to lay everything in the box and snap the lid on for easy storage. 

    We will definitely be playing with this again!

    6 Summer Decor Crafts and Activities for the Whole Family

     Summer is around the corner and what a relief! With the state of the world right now, your family needs every bright moment it can get to have fun and enjoy more time together. And that’s exactly what the sunny and relaxing summer season brings with it. Of course this summer your family might not jet off to a far off land for a vacation, but who says you can’t have fun in your home?

    While summer is the idyllic time to relax and have fun, it can quickly become monotonous if you’re not creative enough. You can only play so many lawn games or visit the beach as a family. What about those sweltering hot or rainy days when you can’t venture outside?

    The last thing you want is for your kids to go back to their gizmos and lounge on the couches all day long.

    With some creativity, you can get everyone busy with the following summer décor craft ideas. Here are fun activities that suit the whole family and the best part is that you give your house a touch of warm summer décor style while also bonding. So, here you go.

    Outdoor Wall Art

    Love painting? Well, maybe you don’t have a potential Picasso in your house but who said you can’t have some with colors? Kids love working with paint and you can bring some summer fun to your outdoor walls with colorful art. Homeowners have always welcomed summer with a proud display of art and this is a fun DIY idea for your home.

    Get a large DIY wall board and brainstorm what to paint. This is a simple yet exciting idea to bring everyone outside. Let everyone have a go at the brush and create a welcoming message to display on your lawn. When you have a cookout or a get-together, this becomes the highlight of your outdoor space.

    Glass Jar Flower Vase Garland

    The applications for glass jars in your home are endless. Summer is synonymous with splashes of color and you can bring your house to life with your favorite summertime flowers. Collect glass jars in the house or even buy some and line them up.

    Tie the jars together in a garland, put some water in each jar with your favorite flower cutting. Hang these indoors on your windows, dresser, or anywhere else to bring some life to your living space. 

    Decorative Leaf Garland for Your Book Stand

    If you love books, the bookstand is hallowed ground where you always find yourself when looking for peace. And what better way to appreciate this space than with a simple but decorative leaf garland. You can work on the leaf garland and create any design that your family suggests.

    Remember, any décor craft ideas are only fun if everyone chips in. At the end of the DIY project, you’ll bring some rainforest vibe into your living room. This will easily turn into the focal point of your home’s décor.

    DIY Summer Wreath

    What better way to prepare your home for an exciting summer than with a colorful porch wreath? This is a classic summer craft idea, and it gives your home a touch of beauty and elegance. The best part about a summer wreath is the fact that it requires all hands on deck.

    Source the right flowers to bring color to your home décor. This is where your family comes in handy. You also need some simple items from the dollar store to add some fun to the wreath and to personalize it. Whether you want a wire wreath, branch wreath, or any other type, you have all the time to prepare.

    Milk Carton Birdhouse/Bird Feeders

    If you have a nice garden, chances are you have beautiful guests from nature throughout the summer. Birds also love their summertime out. Why not create some fun activity from this? Birdhouses and bird feeders not only add some beauty to your garden but also attract more birds to your compounds.

    You can create some fun activity out of DIY birdhouse or bird feeders using recycled milk cartons. Bring everyone outside for some fun. Design how to build the birdhouses and feeders. Your kids will love the idea and you’ll add some color to your lawn. This DIY project might not be permanent but it sure is fun.

    Decorate With Your Kids’ Art

    You have to agree that summer brings out the artist in everyone. The kids especially have a go at creating amazing stuff every time they go out. Whether you’re at the beach or in the park, kids are always making stuff.

    From seashell crab magnets, ice cream cone key chains, shell people to crayon drawings, you can collect all these pieces and use them to bring your living space to life. Think of a board on the wall where each piece goes. It soon becomes a competition where the best piece of art competes for space on that all-important board. This is one of the fantastic decorative ideas for your home.

    The opportunities for summer décor craft projects are limitless. You’ll have so much fun and bring the family together while at it. Whatever idea you have in mind, you can always make it work if you bring all hands on deck. To move from crafts to interior design, visit Home of Cozy for furniture reviews and get started!
