Create a fun spring nest for your home with this easy step by step tutorial.
I’ve always loved adding fresh florals to our home. And in the early months of spring – this is especially true. In March I’m absolutely craving all those fresh spring blooms to appear! So this past week I decided to make a fun spring nest with pretty tulips for our dining room table. You can see it featured in my spring home tour.
It only took a few minutes to make and I love how the beautiful bouquet turned out!
This fun spring floral project was inspired by Martha Stewart. I stumbled upon her website of spring flower tutorials and this one instantly caught my eye. However, I did tweak her tutorial so I could make it more my own and use what I already had in my home. 🙂
And I also changed up the flowers – tulips are a spring must in my book!
I would have loved to compliment the tulips with some white ranunculus, but Trader Joe’s only had pink. So I went with some lovely white mums because those bright green centers look so springy! 🙂
And now that you’ve seen my spring nest, I’m almost certain you want to make one of your own. 🙂 So, let’s talk about what you need and how to do it!
Supplies Needed for Grapevine Spring Nest
- (1) 6 to 10 inch waterproof plant pot
- (2) 15 ft. grapevine garlands
- brown wire
- floral clippers
- floralcraft wetfom brick
How to Make the Grapevine Spring Nest
Start by unwinding the grapevine garlands. Then wrap them around the pot, overlapping so to cover completely.
Then cut pieces of the brown wire to secure the two garlands together. You don’t have to cut many – I only used two or three pieces of the wire.
Then it’s time to add the floral foam. Cut it down to fit snuggly inside the planter pot.
Next, fill a large container with water and place the foam directly on top. Don’t push down into the water, rather allow the foam to soak up all the water. This step is crucial to make sure your foam is completely soaked. 🙂
Place the saturated foam back into the wrapped grapevine pot and then start inserting your florals into the foam. Play with the arrangement as needed and then step back and enjoy your new spring nest!
So simple and can be created with sooooo many beautiful spring floral combinations! The possibilities are endless.
