Equipment

  • Wire cutter
  • Bar cart

Ingredients

  • Bar cart
  • Flowers of your choice I used Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, White Spray RosesItalian Cuscus (as our green filler), Banksia (our orange focal flowers), Safari Sunset Leucadendron (the pop of blood red), Pittosporum (another green filler flower), and Atropurpurea Black Knights (which are prefect Halloween flowers).
  • Cloth covered spool floral wire
  • Small water tubes Optional if you're building in advance and need the foliage to stay fresh and hydrated.

Instructions

  • Start by attaching the greenery that you want to be the biggest bulk of the decor to your bar cart. You’ll be arranging your flowers around them.
  • Wrap the cloth floral wire around the ends of the greenery while overlapping just a bit.
  • Use additional wire to secure the greenery to the corner of the bar cart. You can attach several pieces with the floral wire to make one long swooping garland along the left side. You can even create creepy vine-like look by pinning pieces of the garland to the wall to cascade down around the space.
  • Insert floral tubes filled with water in the big flowers.
  • Once the base of the greenery is secured, attach the biggest banksia (which had a floral tube on) as a focal point flower. If you’re not using banksias, then select your biggest flowers for the focal point.
  • Use the big blooms to cover up any exposed floral wiring for a seamless look. 
  • To make the floral bar cart look nice and full, add dark florals here and there. The dark florals also give it the right amount of spooky.

Notes

  • Please be aware that the estimated cost for this DIY depends on the flowers you choose and what tools and materials you have on hand. Fortunately, we already own a bar cart so the cost was a lot more minimal to recreate this project.
