2. DIY Mother’s Day bouquet tutorial

With this DIY Mother’s Day flower bouquet idea, you just need to follow the following 9 steps to get a beautiful bouquet for your mother. Includes steps:

2.1. Step 1: Choose your flowers

The first step for a DIY Mother’s Day bouquet is to choose very fresh and beautiful flowers. You can consider choosing peonies that are clearly the focal flower. Also, flowers like ranunculus, tulips, roses, freesia, billy balls, and even carnations make excellent secondary blooms. You can use hydrangea or aster as filler in bouquets because they take up a lot of space. Besides, spray roses and stock also work well! Any kind of greenery will do.

2.2. Step 2: Remove Leaves

An important step that you should not skip when making the DIY Mother’s Day bouquet is removing leaves. This step helps the water to travel directly to the flower rather than stopping at any of the leaves along the way up the stem.

2.3. Step 3: Trim Stems

This is important when you make a DIY bouquet for Mother’s Day. Because the diagonal cut allows the flowers to drink water more easily. You just need to trim the stems at this point, and you’ll cut them down further later.
