DIY Flower Arrangement Coffee Mug from Creative Contessa Designs

I found these really cute large coffee mugs at the dollar store and wanted to find something creative to do with them.  Since the kids were still in school, I decided to make mini flower arrangements out of each coffee cup and send them to all the teachers.  They can be used for Thank You gifts, Birthday gifts, Get Well gifts , a Random act of Kindness or simply to make someone Smile.


Items needed:

Large Coffee Mugs {spent $1 on each mug)

Wet Foam (used a 40% off coupon at Micheal’s cost $3.24)

Peat Moss (found at dollar store $1)

Large Flower Bouquet with lots of Greenery  ($9.99)


Total Cost to make 10 Mug Flower Arrangements = $24.23

That is Less than $2.50 each!  What a great price for something that looks so pretty and brings so much joy to those who receive the flowers.



Gather Materials

Make sure they fit. Then pour water over the foam to keep fresh flowers moist. If you have dried flowers, be sure to use the dry foam and DO NOT Water.
