Dogwood blossoms are one of my favorite flowers. Their delicate blossoms are reminiscent of springtime and new beginnings, and while dogwood trees only bloom for a short while, they certainly provide a spectacular springtime show!
When I recently stumbled across these long-stemmed dogwood blossoms at my local Dollar Tree, I knew I had to pick some up! They’re a steal for just $1 each. Dollar Tree even had some other long-stemmed floral varieties to pick from.
I wandered the store, looking for inspiration for a springtime DIY project, and came up with this super easy, incredibly simple arrangement. The total cost was only $6, and the project took me only 10-15 minutes to put together!
You can easily replicate this dogwood blossom arrangement yourself.
Dogwood Blossom Arrangement Supplies
For this project, you will need the following supplies from the Dollar Tree:
- 1 glass hurricane vase
- 1 bag multi-toned river rocks (or another variety, if you prefer)
- 4 long-stemmed dogwood blossom branches
Step 1 – Empty the bag of river rocks into the hurricane vase. I cut a hole in the mesh bag, put the entire bag into the vase, and then gently shook the bag and wiggled the rocks out. This way, the chance of the glass scratching, chipping, or cracking was mostly eliminated.
Step 3 – Trim your branches with wire cutters, if desired, and start arranging them in the vase. You really don’t need to cut off much- maybe just an inch or three on a couple of the stems. I went for a bit of a sweeping, leaning look with mine.
Step 3 – The key to making your arrangement look polished is pulling apart the branches on each stem in all different directions. This helps with the overall fullness and creates an appealing shape.
Step 4 – Find a place to display your arrangement. And that’s it- you’re finished!
I hope this quick tutorial has inspired you to visit your local Dollar Tree to hunt for some of these lovely, long-stemmed branches! They’re so versatile and can easily add some springtime cheer to your home.
