21 Handmade Floral Arrangements for Your Home

Floral arrangements are a nice touch to any abode. Whether sitting on your kitchen table or sprinkled in small vases throughout your home, the splash of bright colors looks nice and gives your place a homey vibe. The only problem is the wastefulness that might leave you feeling guilty. If you don’t have your own garden to pluck petals from, but you’re feeling the knack to adorn a piece of furniture or ledge with a handful of flowers, consider buying or making handmade bouquets from varied (and sometimes thought-provoking) materials. We’ve gathered some awesome arrangements from Etsy to get you started.

 

 

This beaded french rose from Budding Creations is about 3″ wide and the stem is about 12″ long. Positionable and requiring much patience to replicate, these flowers are made using glass seed beads and contain between 6,000-8,000 beads per flower.

While the decorative suggestions one can make for the home are interesting...they really just don't compare to a flowering plant or flowers when one needs a bit of natural cheer in the home.

Love the dried flowers.

Some are very nice, I especially liked the buttons. But I agree with Sue, they are real dust collectors.

Hi everyone, the red beaded rose was made by me! Thank you to who ever posted this and for the nice compliments.
To those of you who have something negative to say. You are entitled to your own opinion and while some may consider work like mine and others on this post as "dust collectors" others will see the beauty and time behind each piece! I love handmade and all the flowers on this post are beautiful and inspirational and I am honored to have my work shown along side them! :)
