Happy Monday y’all!

I hope your weekend was eventful or restful (depending on what you needed!)

Today I’m going to share with you a really easy DIY decor idea that will add a nice touch to any space!

First, you need to find a vessel that you’re going to put the flowers in. I got this galvanized bucket at Hobby Lobby for 50% off! I actually went there to get something else but as soon as I saw it I was in LOVE!! I had no idea what I was going to use it for, but I knew I had to have it (and for 50% off why the heck not?!)

LOVE this bucket!!!

Originally I was thinking I wanted white flowers in it, but the more I got to thinking about it, I already have enough neutral colored decor items. I know, I know farmhouse style is all about neutrals, but I just wanted a little pop color and when I saw this on the other side of the display, it was exactly what I was looking for. I love the sunflowers and they have a nice farmhouse feel as well.

I thought these specific sunflowers were too bright for the look I was going for and the filler pieces looked too fake for me, so I looked elsewhere. I ended up getting five larger sunflowers from Michaels and some star grass all for 40% off. I love how realistic the star grass looks!

Star grass for the filler

I immediately went home after I had the supplies and started piecing it together. I trimmed the sunflowers using wire cutters to the length I wanted and took out sections of the star grass and wrapped it with floral wire so it had somewhat of a structure. After I had everything in the bucket, I thought it looked a little bare in some places so I ended up putting three other smaller sunflowers I already had in the middle to fill it in.

My only slight complaint is that the star grass tends to peek through the openings of the bucket so you have to gather it as much as possible and put it straight down into the bucket.

This project is very easy and takes very little time to do! I’m extremely happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to move in (exactly 2 weeks from yesterday!) to play around with all my decor.

You can use any vessel or any color/type of flower depending on the look you’re going for. See different styles below. Just have fun with it!

 

Hope your Mondays aren’t too Monday-ish!
