 Buying flower arrangements can be very expensive.. why not make them yourself?  You dont even have to buy the flowers, look around and dont sub-estimate the wild flowers blooming near by.

Supplies.

step 2.  Prepare container.

step 3 Cut the stems.

step 4 Start in the center.

Step 5. Build out.

step 6  Fill in empty spots with smaller flowers.

Step 7 Add embellishments (like paper butterflies or feathers)

Tips: remember to cut the stems under water and keep it asymmetric with the size of the container.

 Florists say its best to keep the stem open so it can soak the water in when placed in container.
