How To Make a DIY Hemp Floral Bouquet

with Maria Calabrese & Emily Gogol, Ph.D.

A hemp flower bouquet is a fun and practical way to incorporate this awesome plant into your environment.

What do you need for a hemp floral bouquet? 

  • Hemp foliage - works for any flower arrangement of your choice. It will last for weeks if water is kept fresh.

  • Hemp flowers - green & fluffy to punctuate the color of your other flowers.

  • Other flowers: secret for bouquet making - use flowers from your local supermarket to practice. It doesn’t require expensive, artisanal flowers.

  • A container with water. A large mason jar with enough water to cover the stems of everything. It is important to change the water every other day to make the arrangement last longer.

Three Simple Steps to Build A Bouquet With Hemp


step 1 - put the greens in the bouquet first
Put the greens in first.

First, put the greens in the container you've collected and filled with a bit of water. The greens form the backdrop of the arrangement.  Hemp foliage makes a stunning backdrop for colorful flowers to pop against because of its incredibly rich dark green color.


step 2 - choose flowers on the rule of odds
Choose your flowers on the rule of odds.

When you choose flowers using the rule of odds, you choose an odd number of flowers (1, 3, 5, or 7) to include in the arrangement.

Use one flower for a dramatic flower arrangement or choose multiple flowers for different color complements, but stay with an odd number for the best effect.


step 3 - arrange the flowers & foliage as desired
Arrange the flowers & foliage as desired.

Now is where your creativity can shine!  Carefully arrange the color flowers around the greenery until you have your desired look.  You can make the arrangement symmetrical.  You can bunch one color in the center to add a focal point. You can play with different stem lengths to give the arrangement an appealing height dimension.  The ideas are only limited by your imagination!
