Easy DIY Antique Milk Can Fall Floral Flower Arrangements

  • Author: Sheri Ann Richerson



  1. Stuff the milk can full of crumpled newspaper, plastic bags or other filler material.
  2. Press floral foam in the neck area of the milk can. Cut some small pieces to make sure you get good coverage.
  3. Attach fairy lights to the twigs, then putting the lighted twigs into the floral foam.
  4. Next push the sunflower and mum stem into the floral foam. Be sure to vary the heights of the flowers.
  5. Push the pumpkins-on-a-stick and fall leaves into the floral foam towards the back and off to one side making sure they both stick up higher than the other plant material.
  6. Fill in the empty spaces with the dried grass and wheat. Use broken pieces to fill in the front of the arrangement.
  7. Once you are satisfied with the fullness of the arrangement the only thing left to do is enjoy it.


Note: The flowers are easy to save from year to year by simply removing them, rolling them in newspaper to keep them from breaking and storing in a plastic tote.

Be sure nothing heavy is laid on top of them and that the tote does not get crushed.

If you use your own dried botanical material I do suggest waxing the leaves to prevent breakage.
