Create a beautiful inexpensive DIY filler flower arrangement.
In the past, I’ve shared some tips and tutorials on how to create your own floral arrangements. Today, I’m sharing how to make a DIY filler flower arrangement on the cheap! I spent $11 on this arrangement and am so happy with how it turned out. These are from Trader Joe’s but you can easily buy any inexpensive flowers from a variety of grocery stores.
I shared a video tutorial so you can check it out. It’s similar to the other tutorials where I start with the long greenery. Here, I used seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus bunches. These are always available at Trader Joe’s. Filler flowers are flowers that aren’t your typical main flowers. When I say main flowers, I’m talking about larger flower heads like hydrangeas, sunflowers, lilies or even roses. Filler flowers are used to fill in the gaps of these main flowers. Some examples include baby’s breath, alstroemeria, queen anne’s lace, etc. They are usually meant to enhance the floral arrangements by adding volume, color and texture.
For my arrangement, I only used three types of filler flowers which include eucalyptus, gum ball pink designer hypericum berries and lavender linear flowers. I thought these would look pretty together with their soft colors and different shapes and textures. This time around, the filler flowers are stealing the show.
I think it looks good when they are sort of messy especially with the eucalyptus hanging on the sides. No need for perfectionism here, folks. An easy tip is to create the tallest point in the middle of the vase and work down from the sides at an angle. Try to keep the tallest flower no longer than twice the height of the vase. Not bad for $11 right?
