How to Make a Garden-Themed Flower Arrangement: $7.00 – No Skills Required

How to make garden-themed arrangement. Quick. Easy. Kid-friendly. Hypo-allergenic. | The Chelsea Project Blog | www.thechelseaproject.com

There is just something about Spring

that triggers whimsy, silliness, and fun.


 It reminds us that not everything in life has to be so serious. 🙁


 To honor this wonderful lighthearted season….

a little basket of flowers

has been gathered…

to brighten…

your day.


Oh, boy….

 was it fun to collect these dollar store items…


Then zip home and get going on this cheery little project.

First, the basket was weighed down with a brick.



But….it was in the sunroom…

clean and ready to serve.

It was going to get covered with pink grass anyway.


Why pink?

I don’t know.

Why not pink?



Next…tape or wire the handles together to make the basket more stiff and steady.

Then…hang the gloves over one of the handles.

When I removed the tag from the gloves, I just pulled it off so that they stayed together with their original plastic doodad.  Then I used the doodad to latch the gloves around the handle.


The tools will stand up nicely when tucked between the basket handles and the brick.


The flowers can be cut apart if you want,

but I kept them together and just turn the stem under until I got the desired height.


Don’t forget to cover the stem stub with some grass…

and then work your flowers into place.


“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice Adventures in Wonderland


But….until then….

…dear Alice…

…let us dream of everything nonsense…

but enjoy some whimsy each day.


Until next time,

Have a magical Spring,

Oh…..and please…don’t forget to PIN…..

    Cute idea! I was looking for garden tools just like that at our dollar store last week and walked out with just a pair of garden gloves. You scored at yours and I love how you combined your items – too stink’n cute!

      Yes! I did score. For once, I was at the right place at the right time and had my choice of colors and combinations. Thanks so much for stopping by. Appreciate much!
