Do you know what’s best about DIY gifts, not only for Valentine’s Day, but for any other festivity? Well, you are only half right if you thought of the money it saves.

So, why not produce a memory that lasts a bit longer than only one day; more importantly. Therefore, here I am with these 5 Steps to a Lovely DIY Flower Arrangement for Valentine’s Day.

Decide What You Want

To conveniently create a lovely Valentine’s floral arrangement, you must first decide what you actually want. Given below are three styles to help you. Once you finalise, all you need to do is follow the 5 DIY steps listed forth. So, let’s get the styles first:

  • Singular Bouquet: This makes it quite easy. With only one type of flower in the bouquet, your chances of getting wrong are slimmed.
  • Tonal Bouquet: In this type of bouquet, you look for an arrangement that comprises of 2-3 types of flowers complementing each other in shape, also having related tones of the same colour. For example, you can choose to have all three shades of pink like blush, fuchsia and medium pink.
  • Mixed Bouquet: You need to choose three types of flowers for this bouquet as well, complementing each other in shape. However, the trick lies in choosing the colours, 2 belonging to same colour family with the third one contrasting. For example, two shades of pink with a third either lavender or purple.

DIY Tips

In order to do things conveniently, make sure you pick flowers commonly available in your surroundings.

1          Get them together: You start by arranging the flowers together in your hand, lining them up head to head.

2          Fix the length: To make your bouquet look more presentable, you better fix the length of the flower stems, trimming the extra portions off with a scissor, making sure all of them are equal in size

3          Assemble the Bouquet: Bunch their stems together and tie them using a piece of raffia.

4          Water Tubes: Make sure you resort to water tubes for stems that might have to stay out of water above an hour or so. After your special someone receive the bouquet, the stems’ ends need fresh cutting before being submerged in water. This allows them to get plenty of water and last longer.

5          Make Your Bouquet Extra Special: Skip conventional wrapping papers and go for special Valentine’s ribbons to tie your bouquet together. Add icing to the cake by introducing a poetic touch to your bouquet by attaching a card to it having his/her favourite poem; handwritten will be of much value to them as compared to a printed one.
