Hello all, the clocks changed and warmer days are ahead so today I’m sharing Daffodil arrangements. Daffodils are my favorite spring bulbs. My grandmother especially enjoyed these and I believe this is where I got my love for them.
As an example, I can remember saying to my grandmother, I love these, they remind me of telephones. I was roughly six years old at the time.
We also planted 175 bulbs this past fall in front of our shed. I am so excited for them to bloom and will share them when they bloom.
This can be made using your favorite spring flowers. For instance, this will work with tulips, hyacinths or a combination of all three.
- Daffodils/Narcissus or your favorite spring flowers HERE
- Styrofoam HERE
- vessel to hold your flower arrangement HERE
- Spanish moss HERE
- Reindeer moss HERE
Let’s Begin Making the Arrangement
After gathering my supplies, I begin adding Spanish moss to a platter. I add the Spanish moss before I fill my tureen so it adds additional texture and interest.
By the way, I am using a tureen I did find thrifting for $5 some time ago. As an example, a bowl, grapevine nest, even a grapevine wreath will work for this arrangement as well.
You also may enjoy reading this post Easter Egg Crafts I recently wrote a post sharing additional moss crafts and arrangements.
Firstly, I begin adding the Spanish moss making sure it is level. So then, I place my tureen and add a half dome of Styrofoam. In this case, I recommend using firm Styrofoam because the other it is too soft. Therefore it may break up as a result of a stem needing to move to a new spot.
Now, I begin to place each Narcissus stem forming a natural grouping as seen in nature.
Adding Reindeer Moss to Cover the Foam
Lastly, begin placing the Reindeer moss specifically to cover the foam. The moss also adds a natural element and is green for spring .
By the way, if there is a gap between your foam and vessel add paper towel. Doing this will prevent you from wasting moss and keep the Styrofoam from wobbling.
After I add the moss I secure it around the edge using my finger tips to see the edge of the tureen.
This will make a pretty centerpiece for a spring table and will also be pretty for Easter. Adding eggs also adds another element of interest and a nod to spring.
Adding key lime pie M&M’s is fun and adds more green for spring. By the way, theses M&M’s are dangerously good so be careful if you buy some, they will be gone in a flash.
So, do you enjoy daffodils as much as I do? Are you getting ready for warmer days? I’d love to know.
I hope you Pin this post for inspiration!
