Hey guys! In my last post, I talked about decorating my
house living room for spring. I’m still making progress, so I wanted to show my latest easy DIY project– a DIY Flower Box Centerpiece. I really enjoyed this project because I was able to do the whole procedure during nap time! I plan on putting one of these boxes on my mantle, and the other on my kitchen table. If you are planning a DIY wedding or other event these centerpieces are super easy to make without having to spend an arm and a leg.
4 16 oz Mason jars
1 15″ “CD” wood crate (found at Michael’s in the wood craft section)
4 large flowers
Fine 220 grit sandpaper (Not shown)
Step 1: Remove all stickers from the wood crate and lightly sand.
Step 2: Prepare an appropriate area to stain the wood. I picked Weathered Gray by Varathane for this project. I also did a second box in the same stain I used for my DIY Faux Floating Shelves— Special Walnut by Minwax. You could easily stain 8+ boxes with one 8 oz can. Follow the directions on the can of stain for the appropriate application. Once again, I used a dollar store paint brush and Michael’s old t shirt for this part. =]
Step 3: Trim the stems of your flowers. I used peonies in a gorgeous magenta color (Michael’s) to add a pop of color in our living room. Fill 4 16 oz mason jars with flowers. You can also fit 3 of the next size up jars.
Step 4: You will need to put something inside the crate to keep the jars from leaning. I cut the flaps from a left over diaper box to place inside.
Step 5: Place the jars in the crate and fluff your flowers.
I love how this project turned out. This was a simple DIY that required no building. YAY! If you’re looking for the perfect printables to match this look, check out my 3 Free Spring Printables!
