Materials:

  • Glass container – $1.29 at Michaels with 50% off coupon (originally $2.69)
  • Flowers, fresh or dried (I recommend using flowers and weeds from your own yard, reusing flowers someone gifted you, or asking Publix for old flowers they’re getting ready to throw away! Don’t buy them.)
  • Optional, not required: Mod Podge matte glue at Michaels – $3.60 for 16 oz. with 60% off coupon (originally $8.99). This is great, quality glue that you can use for ALL craft projects.
    • Small stick or paintbrush to apply glue. I used a brush from this pack of 4. – $2.50 with 50% off coupon (originally $5)

Instructions:

1) Spread out dried flowers on an open surface, preferably a counter or desk.

2) Place each piece inside the glass as you’d like it to display. Add some of the colored flowers inside as a base, and then place a large amount of dull flowers on top of that for a colorful display. Alternate the placement so that the colored flowers appear on the outer corners of the glass in the end.

3) Shake the glass container, or use a straw to rearrange the flowers until you are satisfied.

4) Once the flowers are in place, use the Mod Podge to seal the deal (optional – skip to step 6 if you’d like!).
