Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1: Select Greenery  

First things first… when creating a bouquet you should select what type of greenery you want to include.

There are many different types of greenery and Dollar Tree carries a huge selection from vines and ferns to bushes and onion grass, and so much more. Pick your favorites and start building your base!

Step 2. Select Floral Stems

Next, comes the fun part… time to pick your floral stems! Dollar Tree has various kinds of faux flowers, floral bushes, and even succulents. Make sure that once you choose what flowers you are going to use that you alternate between large and small blooms to give your bouquet some dimension. You can also use contrasting colors for more impact.

Step 3: Secure with Floral Wire and Tape

Once you have chosen your greenery and floral stems, the next step requires you to put them together in order to form your bouquet. Vary the heights of your blooms by trimming the bottoms of certain floral stems. Next, arrange your greenery and flowers into a bouquet. Play around with the placement of your greenery and floral stems until you have your desired look. Finally, secure your bouquet in place using floral wire and floral tape.

Step 4: Accessorize with Vases, Ribbon, and Gems

Now that you have built your bouquet, it is time to show it off! Hide the floral wire and tape by wrapping ribbon around the stems. Dollar Tree also carries a wide selection of vases in various sizes, styles, and colors. If you’re planning to use your bouquet as a centerpiece, fill the vase of your choice about halfway with accent gems or rocks to hold you bouquet in place. Elegant and affordable, each bouquet arrangement could cost you $15 or less! Talk about savings!
