A romantic flower arrangement can very quickly turn into a perfect surprise when decorated with basic materials. Our editorial team has prepared practical instructions especially for you. Stay tuned!
Material and selection list
- Black acrylic paint or paint spray
- Floral foam
Choose a suitable color for the box. Spray paint or acrylic paints are best for decorating the bottom and the outside. The black color is preferred by many DIY enthusiasts, because the beautiful roses come out well on the dark background. After the first coat of paint dries, paint a second coat and schedule a drying out period.
Black rose boxes provide an elegant look
The number of bricks made from floral foam or moss depends on the size of the rose box. After you’ve painted the box black, you can lay the individual foam bricks flat on the bottom of the rose box. Use a pencil to mark the exact size of the inside and cut the bricks from floral foam if they are larger than the box. It is important that these decorative elements are not visible. They only help to arrange the flower arrangement and achieve the unique look of the rose box. The floral foam bricks give the roses optimal stability in the box.
Customize and cut to size
Cut off the roses with scissors so that they are stuck in the flower foam and only the blossom is visible. Measure the exact length as this step is considered especially important to the project. After the first rose is carefully cut, you can design all the others on the same principle. The uniform height of the entire flower arrangement is also important for this DIY project. You may need to press down a little on each rose to get an exact flower height.
Carefully insert individual roses
This is how quickly and easily you can create a perfect gift with roses. The DIY project can be made even better if you add a unique color combination, texture, or shape to the flower arrangement. In the next point you will find the perfect inspiration for this. Guaranteed!

A rose box can also provide a direct link to the recipient. The more personalized the gift, the greater the surprise effect. This is one of the best forms of success for birthdays or for Valentine’s Day. Roses of a uniform color, distinguishable from the others, form any letter according to your choice. This is very often the first letter of a name such as that of your partner or girlfriend. White roses are the most popular decorative elements for the formation of the letter shape.
Individual flower arrangement for your partner
Larger boxes offer more space for more letters, heart shapes or even small texts such as “i love you”. Rectangular rose boxes are best for displaying creative textures.
