Spring Country Cottage Flower Holder

Spring Country Cottage Flower Holder

Spring is here and the weather is actually starting to feel more apt for this time of year. All of the bulbs in the garden are starting to flower and the borders are a shade of golden yellow from the gorgeous daffodils. I thought we would bring you a nice flower crate to brighten up the home this Spring, with a little help from Hobbycraft.


What You Will Need –

A bottle crate

Glass milk bottles

Artificial flowers/cut flowers

White chalk paint

Wooden laser cut hearts

Glue gun


First I started to coat the crate with my white chalky finish paint. It dries┬áreally quickly so I could get on with the next step almost straight away. It’s the first time I have tried out chalk paint and I┬álove the finish it gives, perfect for my little craft.

I then painted the wooden hearts. I chose red for these as we have red gingham curtains in the kitchen and this is where I will be putting this when finished.

I placed one on each side of the crate.

I’ve never really bought many artificial flowers, mainly because I have fresh flowers in the house. I also find a lot of artificial flowers never seem to look authentic and I just can’t seem to find what I want. However, Hobbycraft have a lovely selection of artificial flowers. I thought these pretty little daisies, sunflowers and gerbera made perfect Spring blooms.

Aren’t they pretty?

I picked some daffodils from the garden and popped them into my milk bottles to make a lovely Spring feature.

I love my new crate vase and am looking forward to filling it with flowers to suit the season. I think it goes in perfectly with my country kitchen theme too.

    It is beautiful, and a lot cheaper to make than the ones I’ve seen online, I love seeing daffodils blooming, we have finally had some milder weather, we even took advantage and went to feed the ducks and play in the park at our local country park yesterday, it rained today but thankfully held off until we had finished shopping xx

    Sooo pretty. I love HobyCraft it’s like my second home and can browse uninterupted while the kids fill their pull along baskets costing me a fortune but worth it for a few minutes peace
