Simple 3 Step Spring Floral Arrangement

When it comes to flowers and floral arrangements during the Spring I am all about keeping it classy and simple.

So for this faux floral arrangement that I am sharing today you will be surprised to know that this only requires 3 items.

Learn how to make a simple and easy floral arrangement using faux flowers. This tutorial uses tulips, greenery, and a white hobnail planter.

I know, crazy right?!

And you will be happy to hear that this is my simplest flower arrangement to date. Also, it might be one of my favorites!

Supplies Needed for Spring Floral Arrangement

Step 1 for your Faux Spring Flower Arrangement

The first thing you will need to do to create this simple Spring floral arrangement is to pick your vessel. I chose this rectangular, white hobnail planter that I found from the Creative Co-Op shop over on Amazon.

Isn’t she beautiful?

She is large enough to hold a lot and make a statement wherever you decide to display her. You can use this same one or chose another vase or planter you have on hand at home. The main theme should be that it is rectangular!

And the best part about this planter is that I didn’t even need to use a foam block.

Step 2: Choosing Spring Greenery

Next, pick out your greenery for the filler . I chose these greenery stems from Amazon. If you have the same ones as me you will use all 6 of the greenery stems to create the base of the arrangement.

If you are using different stems fill your planter until you don’t see holes and it looks full.

Make sure to spread out the leaves and shape them to make them fuller. This will help support the flowers once you add them to the planter.

Greenery Stems for Spring floral arrangement

Simply put the greenery stems in to the planter at an angle. Having them at an angle allows them to lean against the sides and will help them not fall over. The base of the stems will weave together and end up holding the leaves in place!

Play with them a bit until they are to your liking. The leaves in my picture below got some good fluffing and arranging once I had them in place. I love how the leaves and the stems are bendable!

The greenery serves as the base for your arrangement and prepares the way for the flowers!

Step 3: Choose your Spring Flowers

Finally, grab your flower of choice.

I chose to use my all white faux tulips. They are real touch and some of the best faux florals I have ever come across! For this simple Spring floral arrangement I used all 20 of the tulips that came together.

Once you have your flowers start poking them through the leaves. Look for spaces in the arrangement that need a pop of white (or color) from the flowers.

I walked around the arrangement making sure that I had placed flowers on all sides so the arrangement would look good from any angle!

Once I had all 20 of the stems in I arranged them, bent the stems and leaves to make some look as if they were angled towards the planter or away for it. This gave it more of a natural look.

While I propped the ones in the middle up. This helped make the flowers look more realistic and gave the arrangement some depth.

I have had people visit our home and think these tulips are real! They are that good.

I just love how it turned out and how simple it really was!!! This honestly only took me 5 minutes. If I can do this you can too!

Ideas for Displaying Spring Floral Arrangement

Once this simple 3 step Spring floral arrangement was complete you should have seen me! I was walking all over our house trying to decide where she would live this Spring.

The first stop was on top of my favorite boxwood green dresser. It looks as though she was made for this spot!

I also tried her over on our mantel. This arrangement contrasts so beautifully with so many different colors. I love the layered look she created with the mirror and mini lamp.

Of course my original intention was to have her as a centerpiece on our Spring dining table. We will see where she ends up. For now I am enjoying this lovely arrangement all over our home!
