Ikea Flower Arrangement for Valentines and Spring

This Ikea flower arrangement is so simple to make, and I love how it looks hanging in our front entry. I first hung it up for Valentine’s Day, but it will be staying up well into Spring, or at least until tulips arrive in Canada.

Basicially your take a pretty tea towel or piece of fabric and wrap it around faux flowers, anything I love this much is typically much more work. Don’t you love it when you find something quick an easy to fill a space that just needs “something?”

I am seriously hooked on the SMYCKA Ikea flowers, they are so realistic, inexpensive and gorgeous, I love using them to add little bits of color to light and bright as possible home decor.

To make your own farmhouse flower wrapping you will need the faux SMYCKA IKEA flowers, an IKEA Hildegun tea towel (I got mine for 99 cents), your choice of greenery, some elastics or twist ties, and a couple of feet of twine.

I love theseHildegun tea towels because they are thin enough to look vintage and the little red stripes remind me of grain sack stripes.

As you can see I have the flower wrap hanging as part of my Valentines decor, but the soft pinks can work well into Spring.

Make the Flower Bundle

Start by placing the greenery in the back of your arrangement then add your flowers starting with a tall central flower and then pairing the flowers as you work your way downward.

Once you have your bundle of flowers the way you like, hold them together using a twist tie, or a large elastic band. Set aside.

Attaching the Twine

Lay your tea towel flat, place a two foot length of twine about 1/4 the distance down from the edge. Pin the center of the twine in place. (see arrow). Once the twine is attached fold the top of the towel over to create a large flap.

Flip your towel so the fold is laying down.

Turn over an inch edge along the left side of your towel. Then wrap the towel over the back of the arrangement so that the open edge is located to the back of the flowers. Make sure the twine does not get wrapped inside the towel while closing the wrapping.

I chose to hang my flowers from the farmhouse hall tree in our front foyer as Valentine decor. I love how it added just a little bit of interest to the hall tree.

Adding Scent with Essential Oils

I hope you enjoy using this little wrapping technique throughout your home. I love adding little bundles of flowers, and sometimes add cotton balls with essential oils for the scent.

A little bit of dropcloth, tulips and lace will be so pretty. Or even sprigs of dried lavendar. Let me know if you think you’ll try making something like this. I love hearing your feedback.
