Flea Market Style Spring Centerpiece

Spring is just around the corner and I have been craving color and flowers.

How To Create A Flea Market Style Spring Centerpiece 

If you are looking for a fun, beautiful and easy to put together Spring centerpiece, then you have come to the right spot! 

Welcome to our dining room. This space in our home is right off of our entry and gets a lot of great light. It needed a statement piece for Spring! And so I made that statement with hydrangeas.

Lots and lots of dried hydrangeas! 

How To Create A Flea Market Style Spring Centerpiece

Friends, this centerpiece took me all of 10 minutes to whip up and I didn’t spend a penny! Can I get an amen? But you will have to forgive me because I didn’t take any pictures of the process. But I promise to fully explain it! Luckily it’s a super simple process.

Check out this gorgeous flea market style Spring centerpiece featuring dried hydrangeas.

Collecting Containers That All Have One Thing In Common

I first started by collecting all of my clear glass jars, vases and containers that I had around our home.

Basically anything that could hold some stems I grabbed.

No shape or size was off limits. Think “old apple juice bottles” like the one below.

A Quilt On The Table?

Then I decided that it would be super pretty to use a blue and white quilt I’ve had as a runner and foundation for the centerpiece. The quilt was found at my favorite local flea market, A & J Antiques on one of my shopping adventures with my mom and sister.

I very rarely use real tablecloths on tables and I always like to think outside the box a bit for table coverings. This quilt did just that!

Flea Market Find

Did you spy the one oddball item in this centerpiece? My favorite flea market find in this Spring centerpiece is the old delicious brand jelly can. I was initially drawn to it for it’s bright blue color! It serves as the “off center” focal point of this centerpiece and I love it!

Adding one different container gave this Spring centerpiece the extra oh la la it needed!

Between the jelly jar and the quilt I feel like this flea market style Spring centerpiece is just the right amount of pop for Spring! Kona agrees too. 🙂

Adding The Dried Hydrangeas

Once I had all of the glass containers chosen I went to my basement and grabbed all of the hydrangeas I had dried from last summer. We have several Annabelle hydrangea bushes in our front and back yard and one of my favorite things to do is to dry them and decorate with them. They are great for all seasons.

Drying hydrangeas is so simple!

Blues, greens and dried hydrangeas make the perfect Spring centerpiece.

Can you believe these beauties are from last summer and they still look this amazing?!

Dried hydrangeas and glass jars are the perfect combo for Spring

Once they were upstairs I simply used my scissors to cut them down to the size of the glass vases I was putting them in. A few of them look like they are floating in the vases and I love it! I also love the varying sizes and feel that it give this centerpiece a very eclectic and unique feel.

Arranging It Just Right

Once I had the flowers in their respective containers I started arranging them along the quilt in the center of the table. I tried to balance a big jar on one side with another big jar on the opposite end. In the center I placed my largest glass container to center it all. I kept moving the others around and stepping back and then moving them some more and stepping back until finally, I liked what I saw.

A Simple Centerpiece Process

It was a very simple process to create this flea market style Spring centerpiece and one that you could recreate very easily. Just make sure to have a large assortment of containers that all have a similarity.

Flowers! If you don’t have dried hydrangeas like me you can always get the same look by using faux florals. Some of my favorite places to shop for faux flowers are : Michael’s, Amazon, Afloral, Hobby Lobby and Rod Works.
