Today I will show you how you can make a flower arrangement with dried roses in a shabby chic look yourself! With the nostalgically romantic shabby chic style, the signs of age are appreciated. Here I use a pretty white shabby vase. As a “floral foam” I use sand, which I cover with sisal fiber. I stick dried pink roses and dried gypsophila into the sand. I dried the flowers myself. I just hung them upside down in our apartment for a few days.
With the following step-by-step instructions you can easily make the flower arrangement with dried flowers!
Here you can see which tools I used for the flower decoration in the shabby look: flower scissors and household scissors.
I used these materials for the rose arrangement: dried roses and dried gypsophila. A white vase in a shabby chic look, sisal fiber, sand and a pink ribbon.
Instructions | Shabby chic decoration: floral arrangement with dried roses
Step 1: Cut flowers
First I cut the roses and the gypsophila.
I use my flower scissors and measure the length of the vase.
Step 2: Fill the vase with sand
Now I fill the dry sand into the vase.
I fill the sand almost to the top.
Step 3: Cover sand with sisal fiber
Then I cover the sand with sisal fiber.
Step 4: Insert dried flowers
Now I stick the roses through the sisal fiber into the sand.
I distribute the roses evenly and fill the gaps with gypsophila.
Step 5: Attach pink ribbon
In the last step I cut a piece of the pink ribbon and make a bow knot when attaching the ribbon to the shabby chic vase.
And the romantic, nostalgic floral arrangement is complete! I hope you had as much fun with this DIY as I did and that you enjoy looking at the shabby chic decoration!
