DIY: Wildflower Wine Bottle Centerpieces

Flower arrangements can be expensive for something that doesn't live very long. The trend in do-it-yourself-weddings has been to create your own memorably beautiful flower arrangements. They're a fraction of the price and they look just as stunning. And they're not just for weddings, they're great for any party - or just for a nice table arrangement. It's easy, it's fun, and it gets your creativity flowing!

Materials

  • Wine bottles, or any container you wish to use.

  • Flower bouquet

  • Cork or other decorative element


Step 1: Lay out your bouquet and examine the textures and colors used.


Step 2: Pick out the flowers you would like to use, lay them side by side to decide which ones you would like to group together.


Step 3: Fill bottles at least halfway with water. Trim stems at different heights so that they each stand differently in the bottle. Be careful not to crowd the flowers in there, for my arrangements I used up to three different flowers in my wine bottles depending on the size of the flower and the stem thickness.


Step 4: Arrange the cork, or your other decorative element, around the bottom of the bottles.
