DIY Birdhouse Silk Flower Table Arrangement Steps
Step 1 – Create the Base
Start by hot gluing Styrofoam to the base of the birdhouse stand. This will be covered so it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Next, add Spanish moss to cover the Styrofoam using floral pins. (see video below)
Step 2 – Add Greenery
Trim stems of greenery from the bush. Take a moment to adjust the stems and spread them out. I love this greenery because it’s plastic and it has so many different types of foliage.
Insert the stems into the Styrofoam base after adding a bit of glue to the greenery stem.
Step 3 – Add Silk Flowers
Cut individual stems off the silk flowers and insert them into the Styrofoam base the same way you did the greenery. Add hot glue to the stems for more adhesion before inserting.
Step 4 – Add Branches
Cut the branches to size. Add a bit of hot glue to the stem and insert into the base. These will start to give your arrangement some height. I love the woodsy feel of these branches with the wildflowers.
Step 5 – Fill In with Silk Flowers
Continue adding silk flowers of varying heights to the base. Remember to add flowers low as well to cover the Styrofoam.
Step 6 – Finish
Add a bit of greenery to the top of the birdhouse using a stapler.
Next, hot glue a few flowers to cover up the staple.
For even more fun, hot glue a couple of decorative butterflies to the arrangement.
If the base is not quite covered, hot glue leaves over it to blend it in.
Lastly, add a bit of moss to the hole in the birdhouse for a beautiful finished look.
The result is a creative Birdhouse Silk Flower Table Arrangement ready for Spring!

I enjoyed watching the birdhouse tutorial. I like your style and your soft-spoken voice. You also explain everything so well. Thank you!
Glad you liked it!
That was another great tutorial. I find myself listening to you as well as watching while I am crafting. I am getting ready for my first show ever and I am working late. I put the tutorial on so that I could listen to you for your calm voice, interesting stories and advice. I have only just found you in the last few months, and you have helped me immensely already.
So happy to hear this Laurie and I’m praying you have a successful craft show!
I watch from here in Southern Utah. I love your tutorials. You are so sweet…wish you lived next door 🙂 My friends are all into sewing which I just can’t seem to enjoy, but I love crafts. I have been decorating my home for each holiday and season just by winging it. You sure have shown me many easier ways to do things. Thanks for sharing yourself and your talents with us all.
So glad I could help you!
Love this idea! Had my husband build me two of the birdhouse stands out of some pallet wood he had
I absolutely love this! I’m heading to Carolina Pottery tomorrow to get what I need to make this. LOVE IT! Thanks Julie for all your talent. You’re the best!
