Hello friends! I’m glad you’re here because I have the cutest and fastest spring decor projects to share with you today. A few weeks ago I found an arrangement at Dollar Tree, but it was missing an egg. It was the only one left, so I picked it up, knowing I could figure out what to do with it. I finally got around to working on it, and I’m so glad I bought it. Today I’m going to show you how to turn a Dollar Tree floral arrangement into a high-end looking DIY spring decoration.
It’s also time for our Spring Craft Challenge Hop where I’ll team up with some talented ladies to bring you a new craft idea. As always, our lovely host is Bev from Across the Blvd. Stick around after this post to see what the other ladies have to share with you!
DIY Spring Floral Arrangement Supplies:
- $5 spring floral arrangement
- 4 lamb’s ear stems
- a few pieces of baby’s breath (optional)
- moss (optional)
- 1.5″ wired ribbon
- pipe cleaner
- hot glue gun & glue
Add lamb’s ear stems to the floral arrangement.
I chose to add lamb’s ear and a little baby’s breath to my Dollar Tree arrangement because the greenery in it seemed to be a cheaper version of my stems. You can use whatever greenery you prefer, or faux flowers.
Cut the stems of the lamb’s ear to fit in the flowerpot.
Insert the stem into the flowerpot. There is styrofoam underneath the moss, so the lamb’s ear will stand up on its own.
Repeat with three more stems, going around the outside of the Dollar Tree greenery.
Now, to fix my missing Easter egg problem.
I didn’t want to paint a plastic egg and go through the process of adding speckles. I don’t take my spring decorations down right after Easter, I mean it is spring for two months after, but I thought having two in my arrangement was enough. Instead, I removed a little piece of baby’s breath from its stem, and it fit perfectly onto the plastic spike.
I also added a few of the tiny sprigs around the outside of the lamb’s ear stems in the styrofoam. That gave it a finished look, having some stems lower to the moss on top of the styrofoam.
Next, place a ribbon around the flowerpot.
I used a 1.5″ khaki linen ribbon on my DIY spring arrangement. Any ribbon between 1.5-2.5″ will work.
Place the ribbon around the flowerpot, cut it to size, then glue it in place.
Make a small four loop bow. If you need more of a tutorial, check out the video at the end of the post.
Hot glue the bow to the front of the Dollar Tree spring floral arrangement.
Finally, add some preserved moss to the flowerpot. That’s optional, but it does look better with moss that’s a better than what came in it originally.

That’s it! Now just display your “hard work!”
How easy was that?! It’s so worth the ten minutes of extra time you spent on this spring arrangement. The addition of the higher-end greenery makes a big difference, and the bow is just the icing on the cake.
