5 Minute Florals: Autumn Vase Arrangement

Erik Wesseling5 Minute Florals, Blog, VideoLeave a Comment

This weeks instalment of 5 Minute Florals is inspired by the changing seasons, in particular the beautiful leave falling from the trees.

The entire arrangement costs less than $50, and took me just about 5 minutes to prepare.

Feel free to switch up the colours of the blooms to match whatever season or event you’re making it for, and be sure to send me some photos of your work!

As you’ll see in the video, I chose to add the bamboo after I had already assembled the arrangement, proving that nothing is right or wrong when creating floral art!

Autumn Vase Arrangement: Materials & Tools

  • 1 Cylinder Vase
  • 10 Artificial Leaves
  • Glue Dots
  • Long Stem Red Roses
  • Red Gerbera
  • Red Alstroemeria
  • White Hydrangea
  • Knife
  • Scissors
  • Water

Autumn Vase Arrangement: Instructions

Step One: Clean the vase with water (not Windex) and wipe dry.

Step Two: Use the glue dots to stick the artificial leaves to the vase

Step Three:
Cut the hydrangea so it’s resting on the lip of the vase. The other stems will fit through the hydrangea, making it act like a grid to keep the other flowers in place.

Step Four:
Cut and insert the alstroemeria throughout. Vary the length to give the arrangement a unique look.

Step Five:
Cut and insert the red roses and the gerbera stems in and around the alstromeria. Keep them shorter than the alstroemeria.

Step Six:
Add a few small groups of bamboo throughout. This gives the arrangement more height and a more unique look


Adding the bamboo sticks was a last minute decision, and it just goes to show that any floral arrangement is a unique piece of art, and no two are the same.

All the materials can be purchased at your local flower shop for about $50. You can re-use the vase and artificial leaves again and again, and by switching up the contents of the vase (sand, starfish, etc.) this can easily be adapted to fit any season of the year.
