When you think about flowers, you’re probably likely to picture freshly cut stems in a vase. However, beautiful buds can do so much more when it comes to decorating your abode.
And they aren’t just reserved for spring, either (although these vernal bouquets are glorious). So, if you’re looking for a stylish way to display pretty petals year round, all you have to do is get a little crafty.
From garlands to 3D wall art, these DIY ideas are guaranteed to give your home the perfect touch of garden chic.
Flower Pendant Light
Ideal for dinner parties, this live flower pendant light from Paper & Stitch is a stunning alternative to a traditional centerpiece—particularly if you’re working with a smaller space. This autumnal arrangement is filled with early fall florals, like dahlias, calla lilies, and pittosporum.
Pressed and Framed Wildflowers
To preserve the beauty of fresh stems, consider pressing and framing them. Not only is this project by Urban Outfitters simple, but it’s also super affordable.
All you need is wildflowers, frames, paper towels, books for pressing, clear drying glue, and scissors.
Hanging Vase Display
The kitchen is the heart of the home, so why not give yours some love?
A hanging bud vase display, like this one from A Beautiful Mess, is sure to brighten up any whitewashed cookspace—and as an added bonus, it’s also a great way to celebrate seasonality. Swap in golden mums for fall, and soft pink tulips for spring.
Hosting a soiree at home? Say buh-bye to blank walls, thanks to some lush greenery and brilliant blooms.
A gorgeous garland, like this one from We Are Scout, is both impressive and—good news!—easier to create than you might think.
3D Flower Canvas Art
Don’t get us wrong; a gallery wall is great. But one with 3D botanical art? Now, that’s truly something special. Make your wall pop with a do-it-yourself piece inspired by Lily & Val.
Don’t want to deal with fresh flowers? Artificial stems are a fuss free alternative.
Floral Wall Hanging
A floral wall hanging can instantly transform any space. Comprised of roses and eucalyptus, this multisensory accent from A Pair & A Spare is as romantic as it is aromatic.
The best part? Roses are allergy-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about sneezes and sniffles.
Hanging Flower Chandelier
Give your dining room a dose of drama with a botanical chandelier. We Are Scout uses jasmine vine, poppies, sweet peas, and chrysanthemums to create a soiree-ready, seasonal fixture.
For the holiday season, a festive combination of seeded eucalyptus, holly, and ranunculus is sure to get everyone in the spirit.
Big bouquets not your style? Curate a vignette of wall-mounted vases, a la A Piece of Rainbow.
The herbs will add a fragrant touch to your kitchen, while the display of natural discoveries—like berries, leaves, and twigs—lend a rustic vibe to any room.
