DIY Simple Arrangements - Part 2

Of the vase sets for the three arrangements in this DIY series, the vase tree I'll be using here is my favorite. I purchased it from my local Pottery Barn store a while back on sale for $20. I call that a great buy! I have received many compliments on it from my guests. Using left over flowers from other occasions is a great way to get reuse and cost savings out of your floral buying. Here I have used one of my Poinsettia plants which was still in perfect condition a month after Christmas. Poinsettia, along with the Japanese Privet berries, and some beautiful pink-colored Camelias from my garden make a gorgeous color combination for this corner piece. / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood

What you will need:

  • Floral shears/scissors
  • Vase tree (as pictured) or any other eclectic hanging vases
  • Poinsettia plant or other unusual 'leafy' plant
  • Japanese Privet berries
  • Pink (or your favorite color) Camelia flowers

Step 1

Begin by placing Poinsettia leaves in each of the vases. / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood

Step 2

Similarly, trim and add the Japanese Privet to each vase. / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood

Step 3

Finally, trim and add a Camelia or two to each vase. Does it get any simpler? / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood
