The first time I ever heard the term “flower frog” I had no idea what it meant. As it turns out, a flower frog is a secret trick of the floral arranging trade! It’s a little disc with holes in it that assists you by holding the flowers in place, allowing you to easily make fuller, prettier bouquets. There are companies that make flower frogs you can buy to fit onto the tops of mason jars, but DIY Maven figured out a simple way to make her own using recycled materials instead. Why pay money for something that you can make yourself for free? [how to make a DIY mason jar flower frog]
- Mason jar, on hand or $1
- Plastic lid, on hand
- Hole punch, on hand
Total: Free and up
This would be more useful if the flower stems were longer — frogs are meant to stabilize stems that would flop out of place otherwise. With the demonstrated bouquet, a frog is fairly unnecessary.
The frogs I have are used in the bottom of the vase, not the neck.
