DIY LED Flower Arrangement

1000Bulbs.com LED Flower Arrangement

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s hard not to think about flowers, ribbons, and fun DIY projects. That’s why we’ve combined all three in this simple, fun tutorial on how to make a beautiful LED Flower Arrangement. Ideal for date nights, weddings, and Sunday crafternoons, this light-up floral arrangement is sure to put a smile on any loved one’s face.


For this tutorial, you will need:
• One real or fake flower (we used a plastic rose)
6 ft. LED Ribbon purchased at 1000Bulbs.com
• Circle of red sheer fabric
• 2-3 sheets of silver tissue paper
• Silver wire for the bow
• Green wire for stems
• Tape
• Wire cutters

Step 1
Create a bow using your LED ribbon. For this example, we did a five-loop bow. This can seem daunting to those that are unfamiliar with making bows. Have no fear, as we show you how to make a pretty and simple bow. What’s great about this ribbon is that it’s dual-sided, wire-edged, lighted, lace-like, and iridescent. It looks nice from both sides, and it is easy to form and hold shapes with. If it takes you a few times to craft a bow and you’re worried about the shape, that’s okay. The ribbon will still look brand new.

Step 2
Tie a knot around the ends of your ribbon and secure it with your green or silver wire.

Step 3
Lay the rose on top of the bow and wrap them together with wire.

Step 4
Take the sheer fabric (it should be in a circle shape with a hole cut out of the middle in an X shape. The X should be about an inch in length) and put the rose through the center. Then fashion the fabric around the stem and the bow.

Step 5
Use clear scotch tape to fasten the LED battery to the bottom stem of the rose. Make sure that the on/off switch is accessible.

Step 6
Wrap your tissue paper around the flower, bow, and fabric and secure everything in place with your ribbon. (Use extra sheets of tissue paper or wire if necessary).
