7 Fresh Flower DIYs

21 August 2015

There are so many cool things you can do with fresh flowers, a lot more than just putting them in a vase. (That's pretty too!) So if you find yourself with a beautiful abundance of fresh flowers here are 7 lovely ideas on what to do with them.

1. Flower Cake Topper // Alma Camponesa

This kind of thing would be gorgeous for weddings and baby showers. The trick is to wrap the stalk in aluminium foil so as not to get the flowers on the cake. I would definitely make sure you wash and air dry the flowers before using them in the cake too. So there's no nasties on petals. 

2. DIY Floral Letters // Honestly Yum

This beauty is made using metal marquee letters and green florist foam to keep the flowers in place. You could also use cake tins that we in the shape of certain letters. How cute would T&J look in flowers at Josh and my future hypothetical wedding?? Adorable. 

3.  DIY Corsage // The Bride's Cafe

I've never actually been to anything that requires a corsage but they're on movies all the time so someone is using them. This DIY is lovely and simple and even incorporates one of those cool snap bracelets into there so you know its good.

4. Pressed Flower Phone Case // The Etsy Blog

This is probably the only way you could ensure you had a unique phone case. As it's pretty unlikely someone has used the same flowers in the same arrangement that you have in their own pressed flower phone case. Just grab yourself a plain phone case, clear or white and then mix up some clear resin and get pressing!

5. Fresh Flower Bicycle Handlebars // Lovely Indeed

I seriously love this it's so beautiful. How is it that any DIY with fresh flowers just screams weddings and pretty parties. Because it does. Even on a bike, you just expect that now a bride will be riding this bike as it is so beautiful with the fresh flowers on the handlebars. 

6. Spring Floral Crown // Green Wedding Shoes

While flower crowns are no longer as big of a thing as they used to be. Have you ever tried one on and looked at how cute you are? Because guarantee that it improves your cuteness like tenfold. Lana Del Rey knows this secret, that is why she wears them so often. Get into the spirit and make your own fresh flower one. 

7. Fresh Flower Wall // Green Wedding Shoes

The perfect photo backdrop for your next party. These gorgeous roses and flowers just washi taped to the wall make for a beautiful backdrop for any photobooth or just to help create a lovely atmosphere for all your guests. 


There are so many things you can do with fresh flowers, way more than I would have ever guessed. At least I know that next time I get a bouquet of flowers there are more options than just putting them
straight into a vase. If you don't have a garden overflowing with flowers to pick, then I might just have the thing. 

An online florist, FreshFlowers.com.au, has a wide selection of bouquets you can choose from. They can deliver flowers to Sydney and most urban areas nationwide. You can expect the flowers at your doorstep on the same day you ordered them. They even deliver on Saturdays! Rad.

Have a good weekend!
