Hanging Flower Arrangements DIY

Milena Kukurekovic

Hanging flower arrangements make a stunning DIY project for any event, but are especially fitting for a summer wedding. I love this DIY because it combines the whimsical elegance of a hanging vase, with the modern feel of our {brand new} paint cans! They're right at home in a backyard wedding, a rustic venue, or an upscale ballroom. All you need is a place to hang from, whether that's a tree, a wooden beam, or a rod. These paint cans will not hold water, so we suggest either using artificial floral stems or adding water tubes to the ends of your flowers to preserve them during your event. Follow along to create your own hanging arrangements.

What you need:


1. Arrange flowers in the paint can with the handle up. Try to keep an even weight while arranging so the cans don't tip once hung.

2. Cut a length of ribbon double the height at which you plan to hang arrangements. Slide half of the ribbon under the handle and loop up.

3. Hold both ends of the ribbon and hang arrangement in the desired location.

What other things could you fill these paint cans with to create hanging decor?

Much Party Love, Smarties!
