DIY: 3 Step Flower Arrangement

Hi blog friends!!

I have been absolutely loving homeware at the moment, little ways to make your surroundings look more homely and fun! 
I have been meaning to do this for a while and finally I had the time to get all the things I needed to make a fake flower arrangement (watering is too much effort when I'm busy at uni haha)! 
So I thought I would share with you how I created it, it's really simple to do and looks great when finished, everything I used came from The Range, so here's how I did it in 3 easy steps!

Blue Peonies £2.99
Pink Peonies £2.99
Vase £3.99
Aquarium Stones £2.99
Purple Bouquet £2.99 

STEP 1: The first thing I did was wipe the vase down so it wasn't dusty or dirty and then started to put half of the bag of stones into the bottom. I used a bag of white aquarium stones (fishRfun gets me every time!), I did find a tube of plant topper stones but there were more in this bag and the stones were bigger which I liked.

STEP 2: Once I had filled up the vase with the stones I then started to cut the flower stems, to do this I measured how long I wanted the flowers to be, then with the scissors cut the plastic surrounding the inner wire, then with my hands just wiggled it till the wire snapped (watch out because the wire can be sharp, you can also put sellotape around the bottoms to stop the wire coming out). I did this for all of the flowers until I had them all layed out in front of me and started arranging them till I was satisfied with the look.

STEP 3: And finally fill up the vase with the rest of the stones and viola you have created a beautiful, no fuss flower arrangement that will brighten any part of the house, I am going to be putting mine in my uni bedroom on my desk so when I am drowning in work at least my desk will look pretty!

Hope you enjoyed this little DIY, I really enjoyed doing this one! 

Lots of love
