DIY Floral Arrangement Gift Horse Mug

Mugs are always a great gift idea on a budget. Fun coffee mugs are always appreciated! A pretty floral arrangement inside the mug creates a beautiful presentation and a unique way to gift a coffee mug to you mom, girlfriend, wife, grandmother, barn friend, or anyone else who enjoys getting flowers. The best part is it doesn't require a box or wrapping paper! Here's how to do it yourself:

Step 1:

Gather your supplies:

  • - A fun horse mug from The Painting Pony
  • - Pretty flowers (can be from the store OR even ones you picked yourself)
  • - Floral Foam
  • - Scissors

Step 2:

- Cut the foam to fit snugly inside of your mug and add a bit of water to the mug.
(We don't want your flowers to get thirsty).
- Place the foam inside of the mug with the water.

Step 3:

- Cut the stems of the flowers so they are short enough to not stick out of the mug "too" much. You don't want them too tall or they will be too high. You can make them just about the same height as the mug.

Step 4:

- Place the flowers into the foam in the mug. Be sure to put the highest flowers in the middle and angle the bottom flowers outward as you push them into the foam.

Step 5:

- Fill the rest of the mug with the flowers and create a "dome" with them. Pull flowers out or push them into the foam more so they create the appearance you want.

Step 6:

- Add some leaves and greenery to fill in any gaps and create a little texture in your arrangement. Be sure the stem is "clean" without extra leaves for the parts that go into the foam.

Step 7:

Give your beautiful flower arrangement in the mug to your gift recipient! Ta da!
