When we were looking for a pretty centerpiece for our round kitchen table, my husband came across something he liked but then he started laughing and showed me his phone. He found this very lovely and high-quality floral centerpiece for only $627.00! A savings of $273 off the original $900, lol. What a “steal!” You might be able to guess what he asked me next: “can you make something like this?” I told him, of course, I can, I can make anything! (While in my head I really wasn’t sure. Floral arranging isn’t exactly my superpower.) But I actually pulled it off with this DIY Faux Greenery Pedestal Centerpiece, and I’m positive you can, too!

DIY Faux Greenery Pedestal Centerpiece
- Pedestal Bowl That Fits Your Decor
- 7.8 Inch Green Floral Foam Half Ball
- Floral Moss
- Pruning Shears
- Greenery Bunches
DIY Faux Greenery Pedestal Centerpiece Steps
1: If your greenery bunches are too long to sit snug against that foam ball, you’ll need to trim them with the shears and then sort the pieces by type.
2: Poke the fuller pieces in first, evenly around the foam ball.
3: Then, surprisingly, you’ll fill in the visible foam sections with the floral moss. When I tried to put the moss on first, it kept sliding down and the first stems were harder to poke in and move around. So moss after first stems.
4: Now evenly fill in the spaces with the next greenery type, then the next, then any flowers that were included or added.
That’s it! My DIY Faux Greenery Pedestal Centerpiece is a hit with the husband and I love looking at it, too. I also loved not spending $627! That pretty pedestal bowl is from Pier1 and cost I think around $30 originally before discounts and sale prices. The floral bunches came from Kirkland’s and were originally around $12 each before the 30% off. So I’d say mine cost around $80 total. I’d imagine you could beat that price with a pedestal bowl from HomeGoods and 50% off florals from Michaels, though!
Don’t be reluctant to try your hand at floral arrangements, like I was. I unpoked and repoked those stems many, many times before I settled on the final arrangement, lol. That’s one of the big perks of this craft genre, lots of do-overs!
I also made this Spring Picket Fence Floral Arrangement you may like, that I still use in my house in the Spring.

Yu arrangement is gorgeous!
Such a beautiful arrangement! It is so lush and full. It is really perfect for spring! You did a great job. I am so glad to be hopping with you.
Marie, I agree with Gail that your centerpiece looks much better than the pricey inspiration piece. Your centerpiece has more color, layers and texture. It’s beautiful! No wonder you and your husband enjoy it so much! It was fun crafting and hopping with you!
Marie, very nice step-by-step tutorial to create your centerpiece. The soft greenery looks great together. Nice to be introduced to you on this hop.
Marie, you did a beautiful job! I don’t know how you can say you aren’t a floral designer! Isn’t it the best feeling when you are able to recreate something at a fraction of the cost. I do that with floral swags for the front door often, and wow, what a difference in the cost! Thanks for joining in our hop!
Such a good idea. I love a centerpiece that isn’t so high and in the way. Will have to try this out. Glad to find your blog.
Nice to meet you through the blog hop Marie! Your centerpiece turned out lovely and will serve you well spring through summer. Really like the choice you made in terms of the pedestal bowl and florals too.
I love how it turned out! You have so many layers which makes it all look so full and real! Nice job! (Sorry if this comment is a duplicate, I’ve been having problems leaving comments under my blog address for some reason!)

Marie, That truly is inspiring! I will definitely be trying this beautiful display! Thank you for sharing!
I adore creating thrifty versions of high-end decor so your gorgeous centerpiece is right up my alley! Happy to be joining you for this creative hop! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
Beautiful arrangement and great tutorial too!
Lovely to blog hop with you!
Wow! I do not frequent high end homes or websites very often, and I had no idea that a person could buy a floral arrangement for $600-$900!! Wow! I suppose they can be pricier than that, if I think “wedding.” Great job on making your own for a fraction of the price. I like doing that, too!
The lush greens looks so fresh and welcoming. Its perfect for Spring, where I live we don’t have any greenery yet, and I am longing for it. Beautiful arrangement.
It looks so beautiful! Love the variety of greens!
Wow, Marie you sure did pull that off! I was so surprised when I scrolled down and saw how awesome it turned out. If somebody’s making over $600 on sale, you might want to consider a career change – lol!
What a beautiful centerpiece and with all the pretty faux florals now you can keep it forever or switch out some seasonally.
Marie I love the look of your centerpiece. The little pop of color with the greenery makes it. Thanks for sharing.
Love the lush greens and pretty spots of color in your centerpiece. It would look lovely on the table as well as any where in a home.
Great job and a significant savings too with your arrangement…:) Happy to be crafting with you today!
Marie, it’s hard to believe that your inspiration for this was originally $900! Your creation looks so much better! In fact, it looks fabulous! Maybe you should start selling yours! You can now add creating centerpieces to your awesome super powers!
So pretty Marie, and maintenance free!!
Looks lovely and perfect for spring and summer. Great arrangement and thanks for sharing
