DIY Valentines Floral Arrangements

Continued from: DIY Valentines Floral Arrangements part 1 and part 2. On Monday I started a three day continuous post where I focused on three potting arrangements per day. Single plants with small pots simple and cheap enough to do in a day. These are great for anyone, mom, dad, grandparents, sister, and friend or even for you.

Tuesday’s pots had multiple flowers in three unique mid-size potting containers you probably would not have considered before as outdoor pots, they had no holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. For today’s last post, #3, I am using larger containers. Tuscan, Classy and Rustic. (Above)

It should be noted that my drug stores and Walmart have flowers and supplies stocking now. I printed high value coupons and never had the opportunity to go shopping because of work, and getting sick. When I went out to restock, I found my stores had the products on clearance and money makers.

I found these old Tuscan pots years ago to make an interior arrangement for my mantel. I also bought large matching candle holders that eventually got turned into small pots (use a masonry drill bit). Most women like to switch things up from time to time when in comes to interior design. If I get tired of using an inexpensive indoor decorative item, I will eventually find a way to incorporate it into my garden and add some personality. These Tuscan pots got used in so many ways I didn’t feel guilty at all using them for outdoors. If I am hosting a dinner party, I take the plants out of the two smaller pots, clean them up and put the candles back in.

I do have future plans for it, but until that day comes, I can switch this plant out. The white insert does not go all the way to the bottom so I feel good they won’t get over watered. The stock and anemone flowers are one of my favorite spring flowers, such a lovely smell.

 

Basket of flowers

Who says you can’t plant in a basket for DIY Valentines floral arrangements? I collect all sizes because you can make nice gifts as long as you have florist fabric (Double or triple based on size) to line basket inside with, fill with dirt, packing it tight.  The basket in this photo was from one of those gift baskets you get at the holidays. I placed a salvia, cyclamen, English daisies, stocks and pansies.

In all, I made 9 arrangements and used the rest of the stock and English daisies for myself. I bought four six packs at a $1.26 and bought two plants at $3.29 ea. I used coupons at Walmart. I already had dirt and completely decomposed horse manure. Total cost for all 9 was less than $12.00! Go peak though your miscellaneous boxes. You may get inspired enough to use your coupons in another way.

Happy Valentines! ~Gale
