How to make a high-end thrifted floral arrangement the easy way with Bowdabra

Create this high-end look with dollar-store flowers in just a couple of minutes. The items used in this arrangement were found on sale and we used a thrift find vase. With only a few floral bushes and floral picks, we created this beautiful thrifted floral arrangement, using the Large Bowdabra!

How to make a thrifted floral arrangement the easy way
Supplies:
  • 2 Floral picks
  • 2 Sunflower bushes with 3 blooms each
  • Berry bushes
  • 2 Wheat or Millet bushes
  • 1 Ceramic vase of choice
  • 1 Piece of a pool noodle
  • Large Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
Instructions:

thrifted floral arrangement

First cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire.  Then, fold it in half and insert it into the Bowdabra.  You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other side.  This will serve as your slipknot. Tuck the ends under to stay out of the way.

Next, add the bushes to the Bowdabra facing one side.  Then, add the floral bush and follow with the tallest bush.

Add the florals to the other side

Now, mirror what you did on the other side with all the florals.

Scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand.  Then, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Then, remove the bow from the Bowdabra, separate the ends, turn to the back and tie a knot.  Tie a double knot for extra security. Clip off the excess wires and set aside. Fluff and shape your arrangement.

Cut a pool noodle in half and measure how deep it will go into your chosen vase. make sure it come right to the top of the opening. Place your arrangement in the channel you made in the pool noodle piece and use the excess wire you saved to tie it on. Tie it in two places.  Place it into the vase. You have a beautiful high-end thrifted floral arrangement for pennies!
