Create a fun, simple centerpiece that looks like a hill filled with wildflowers! This project is fairly simple to make as well as a cost effective alternative to bouquets of fresh flowers. The “hills” can be made ahead of time and the fresh flowers added on the day of the wedding. Add some charm into the mix by placing a painted wooden bride and groom in front of a paper chapel on the top of the hill. Click more below to see the rest…

Supplies:
1. flowers (try to use small flowers with long stems), 2. strainers or colanders, 3. wire cutter, 4. sheet moss, 5. scissors, 6. small pots or vases, 7. wooden people (for decoration), 8. hot glue gun

First, using a wire cutter, cut out holes in the mesh strainer where you would like to place the flowers. I decided to use a mesh strainer so that I could cut out the holes exactly where I wanted but you could also use a colander with larger holes already in place.

After cutting out the holes begin gluing pieces of sheet moss on top of the upside down bowl. Once it’s covered turn over the bowl and poke through each of the holes in to be sure that there’s an open space to pull your flower through.

Next, begin inserting flowers through the moss and into your container under the bowl.  I used small pots filled with water but you could also try placing floral foam into a shallow bowl. Whichever vessel you decide to use be sure to place it on a small tray or plate so that that centerpiece can be moved if needed.

Finally, decorate the top of your little hill with a painted wooden couple and a paper chapel. You could also use a simpler paper flag table number or add paper animals, little mushrooms or other small objects around the hill.
