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!

- 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.
