What is a Flower Frog?
A flower frog is an odd name for a very simple thing. Basically, it's a contraption that allows you to organize and keep in place your fresh cut flowers in a vase.
For some flower arrangements, we just need the flowers to be neat, upright and look like there is a plan with how they are arranged,

There are old antique ones floating around at vintage stores and even the occasional yard sale. They look like some kind of dangerous contraption. You can actually buy this style of flower frog through Amazon. If you want to see what they sell for, just click on the image.
The picks are sharp! They are supposed to be so that you can anchor your flowers on this. This flower frog gets placed in the bottom of the vase and then you stick you flowers on it.
If you are looking for something to support your plants that doesn't look so dangerous, these mason jar flower frog are popular.
But, sometimes you don't want to buy something like this. Especially if you can easily make something that is quick, easy, fully functional and cheap to make!

Find something to use as a guide for the size. Don't laugh but a big can of peaches was exactly the size that would fit snuggly into the vase.
Then what I do, is wrap the floral wire abound the can about 5 or 6 times. Just so it has a little strength. The floral wire is then used to weave back and forth. My aim is the have spaces that are about ½ inch. The goal is squares, but, this is a quick, easy and disposable (potentially) vase frog and perfection doesn't matter. No one will see this after you have filled it with your plants.
See how my little quick and inexpensive gadget keeps the flowers upright in this milk glass vase full of hydrangeas!
This is my old mantle at a former home, but I just loved how pretty and simple the white milk glass vases looked with white hydrangeas.
Another vase idea is this mason jar wall vase. I loved this one because my naughty cat can't get to my flowers : )
Can't help myself, here is a picture of the mason jar wall vase from a few years ago. I still love it!
