Unique Vessels: Mustard Bucket

Last week I bought some French mustard that came in the cutest bucket. So of course, a flower arrangement in the bucket was a must. I picked some flowers and greens that I had available in the garden and made a sweet little French-inspired centerpiece. If you have a can, jar, or a bucket, you can always use it with some garden flowers to decorate a corner of your home (I used it for my breakfast room). Better yet, bring it to a friend! This is a super simple DIY that you can do in about 5 minutes. Give it a try!

Crayon Tin

When doing floral arrangements, choosing the right vessel is an important factor in how it will turn out. I had these leftovers from the magazine rack post that I did last week, so I decided to do a quick and fun DIY in a vintage-style crayon tin I picked up a while back from one of my trips to Long Beach. In my opinion the crayon tin is really the star of this arrangement, and it completes the bright and happy theme! This DIY is really simple and I think it would look really cute for kid's birthday party.

Flowers: gerrondo gerbera, african milkweed (the green balls) Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

This is amazingly simple - begin by placing the milkweed in the tin Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Then add the gerbera. I wanted to have them all concentrated on one side for a little eclectic look. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
