Easy DIY Flower Arrangement

Step 1

Fill your vase with warm water.

Step 2

Cut the ends of the stems diagonally.

Step 3

Remove the leaves from the stems and the sepals from the base of the rose.

Step 4

Take the outer two layers of petals and gently bend them back.

Step 5

Blow into the center petals while spinning the rose in your hands. Yes, blow. There’s no easy way and you look ridiculous but it opens up the middle petals.

Step 6

Repeat with all roses and arrange in the vase.


These roses were buds in the grocery store and now they make a full floral arrangement.
