 DIY K-Cup Bouquet How-To
(note: multiply supplies based on how many bouquets you are assembling)

What you'll need:
  • 1 Large mug of your choosing 
  • 8 K-Cups of your choosing 
  • Green tissue paper
  • 8 small rubber bands
  • Scissors
  • Floral wire cutters / heavy duty scissors
  • Silk flowers in your choice of colors / blooms
  • A foam ball (cut in half, as pictured below - you only need one half for each bouquet ) 
  • Large temporary hold Glue Dots
  • Optional: Floral arrangement card stake / small floral arrangement greeting card (refer to images above and below)

How to:
  1. Cut 16 large squares of tissue paper (refer to image below). Set to the side.
  2. Cut your foam floral ball in half (refer to image below). Set to the side.
  3. Cut the stems of your blooms down so they are no longer than 3 inches long each. Set to the side
  4. Starting with your K-Cups, arrange two pre-cut squares of tissue paper (as pictured below). Place a K-Cup (top up) in the center. Bunch the tissue up around the sides and wrap/affix it with a rubber band. Repeat this step until each K-Cup is wrapped.Set to the side.
  5. Next, grab your Glue Dots and your mug. Place 12-14 glue dots around the rim of mug (don't worry, they remove easily and won't leave any sticky residue behind). 
  6. Now, Press the underside (the flat surface) of the pre-cut floral ball half onto the rim of the mug (refer to image below). Press until the floral foam ball half is firmly in place.
  7. Next, turn over all of your tissue paper wrapped K-Cups and place 3-4 Glue Dots on them. Set them to the side, sticky side up to avoid having them stick to anything. 
  8. Begin to arrange your flowers on the floral foam ball (refer to images below). Every 3 inches or so, press one of the wrapped K-Cups to the floral foam ball. Repeat this step until your arrangement is full, even, and complete.
  9. Optional: Write a personal message on the gift card, and insert it/ affix it to the K-Cup bouquet using the floral stake (refer to image below.
Now you're ready to gift your completed K-Cup Bouquet arrangement to someone special!

Wishing all the moms out there a very Happy Mothers Day!
