How to Create Great Floral Arrangements at Home


Learn the sticky trick to creating amazing floral arrangements.


One of the easiest way to make your home feel happier is by adding fresh flowers. For me, the local farmer’s market is the best place to find gorgeous flowers at an affordable price. Once I get home I pull out my vases and get to work. This is where things get a little tricky sticky! Yes, sticky! 

The secret to creating a great floral arrangement? It’s all about the scotch tape! By creating a grid of tape you can control the position of the flowers and keep them from falling all over the place. This is EXTRA helpful for large vases that have an odd shaped or wider opening (like a bowl).

Step One

Fill the vase with water. (Sometimes I forget this and it gets a little tricky to get the water in after the tape has been placed)

Step Two

Dry the top of the vase off with a paper towel.

Step Three

Create a tape grid across the top of the vase. If the opening isn’t large you may need to cut the tape strips in half to make them thinner.

Step Four

Start arranging the flowers into each box starting from the center and then working your way out. If the stems are thin you may be able to fit multiple flowers in a box.

Step Five

Enjoy as your flowers stand up tall and look beautiful!
