Flower arrangements don’t need to be complicated and confusing. Simple containers and blooms can make lovely little rustic flower arrangements that bring a touch of Spring into your home.
I love looking out the kitchen window and see blooming yellow! The forsythia bush seemed to bloom overnight and the daffodils are smiling away. I know they won’t last long, so I decided to bring some inside and enjoy them doubly.
In just a few minutes I had a smiling yellow arrangement sitting on my kitchen table.
It was starting to rain when I ran out with my pruners to clip off some flowers, so I did this arrangement really quick!
I found some jars of random sizes and heights, filled them with water and arranged the flowers sort of “willy nilly”. I figured that wild flowers should look a little wild!:)
To do this arrangement, the stems were trimmed at varying lengths to provide different heights. As each stem was placed into the jar, it was done to produce a “criss-cross” pattern in the jar. When the stems are placed this way, new stems can be put in and will hold tightly, as it forms a natural “web”.
To hide the labels on the jars, they were placed in an antique sewing machine drawers. Quick, simple, and rustic…
Other ideas for rustic flower arrangements are:
painted mason jars with lace, burlap, and ribbon tied on (See example here)
a long narrow wooden box painted to be a tabletop flower box (See example here)
tiny antique bottles and jars big enough for just one bloom (Like I put in my kitchen windowsill here)
