Lucky SpringFloral Centerpiece - Beauteeful Living

You know spring is near when you see St. Patrick’s Day decor all around stores. I am definitely not complaining! I really love the spirit of St. Patty’s Day and today, I along with some blogging friends, are all sharing DIY projects that we created to celebrate this occasion. I’d like thank my lovely friend, Meg from Green with Decor for hosting this blog hop!

TUTORIAL

Supplies Needed

1) Wood planter box with handle (Got mine at A.C. Moore)
2) 1 bag of faux moss/grass
3) Silk hydrangeas (just 1 bloom is needed)
4) Faux dusty miller stem
5) 3 flowers of your choice (I got this small bunch from Michaels)
6) Small bottle of chalk paint (I used a dark grey color)
7) Small foam brush
8) Pencil
9) White chalk pen
10) Painter’s tape

Lucky Spring Floral Suppli

Step 1 – Tape around center of planter box, creating a rectangle shape. The interior of rectangle was approximately 6 inches in length and 1.5 inches in height.

Taping Step

Step 2 – Paint inside of area not taped and removed tape immediately after painting.

Chalk Paint Step

Step 3 – After paint has dried for at least 20 minutes, write the word “lucky” in script.

Pencil Step

Step 4 – Fill in writing with a white chalk marker. Make the letters bold like the image below.

Step 5 – Now it’s time to fill in your “Lucky Spring Floral” Centerpiece! Place your package of faux moss/grass into container.

Moss Step

Step 6 – Place faux dusty miller stems on top of moss/grass.

NOTE: I’m not gluing any of the contents into the basket because this is only a temporary display. Feel free to glue items if you wish to make this a permanent centerpiece! 🙂

Step 7 – Place flower buds into basket. I used 3 rose-like buds (2 white ranunculus blooms and 1 anemone bloom).

Spring silk flowers

TADA – The finished product! I really love the layering of the various floral elements. Looks so realistic, right?!
