DIY Boxed Roses

February 14, 2017
Boxed roses are the latest trend, and have taken over Instagram. Although they are so beautiful, they can be very expensive. For Valentine's Day, I decided to do a *cheap* DIY boxed roses craft, and it's super easy to do. Follow these steps, and you'll have a Valentine in no time.

Step one: Buy a box of your choice.

I bought one small black box and one medium white box from Michaels. They were $3.99 and $4.99, with 50% off in store, as well as a 20% off coupon. We all know I love a good discount, so I was so happy about this.

Step two: Buy fake flowers of your choice.

I got small red roses for the black box for $1 each, and medium sized peach roses for the white box for $4 each from Michaels, as well.

Step three: Buy a foam board/ piece.

I had some foam laying around my house, so I didn't have to buy any. I cut the foam to the size of the bottom of both boxes, and then placed it inside each. 

Step four: Stick the flowers into the foam board.

I then arranged the flowers in the order that I wanted, and stuck them in one by one, adjusting them as I went. It made it easier to cut off the plastic stem at the bottom, to expose the wire. (This makes it easier to stick them into the foam board.)

Step five: Finish up, then repeat on second box.

This is what your final outcome should look like!

I will be honest, this wasn't the fastest craft to make. It requires some patience, but all in all it really didn't take too long. I would definitely reccommend if you've been dying for one of these boxed roses off Instagram like me- now I have my own that will last forever!

Happy Valentine's Day! Xoxo
