Flower frogs are a great way to keep your flower stems neatly arranged and protected. Florists have been using these as a tool for years, and now you can use them too. You don’t need to make a trip to the store to grab a flower frog for use, in fact, you can make your own using a few common household materials. Take a peek below at how we made an easy upcycled flower frog in just minutes.
- Plastic snack container with lid
- Scrapbook paper
- Craft glue
You want to pick a snack container with a plastic lid. We used a toddler treat container. If you don’t have one you can use something similar such as a formula container, nut container, or snack mix container. For scrapbook paper, we grabbed a piece from our local craft store for around .25. You will find quite a variety and are sure to find something that suits your needs and tastes.
1. Begin by cutting a strip of scrapbook paper and wrapping it around the container. Cut it to fit and secure it in place with your craft glue.
2. Take your scissors and poke several holes into the lid. This is where your stems will go so you want the stems to be large enough for them to stick through.
3. Fill your container with water and place the lid back on.
4. You can now arrange your flowers. Stick your stems directly into the container and down far enough so it touches the water.
Your flower frog is now complete. Your stems will stay neatly in place and get plenty of water while looking great in a decorative vase.
Gather your supplies and give this easy and inexpensive upcycled flower frog a try. It is a great way to give some new life to an old object while getting in the spring spirit.
