It also gave me a chance to collect some fallen twigs for my next ikebana arrangement. I found some fallen willow which is lovely to work with as it bends easily.
I picked up a bunch of daffodils for £1 on the way home from the supermarket and a blue circular dish from the pound shop.
I wanted to see if I could make a decent arrangement for £2 including the container. I am working on the challenge of #fivefrugalthings for this week. I think this is going to be number one.
This is my my ikebana daffodil arrangement, I used nine out of the fifteen daffodils in the bunch, the rest are happy in a vase. I could have used less but I liked the way this group looked.
I am sure people can do fabulous arrangements for free from flowers in their garden. I live in a flat so its the great outdoors and whatever flowers I can afford or grow indoors.

I thought the pale blue dish went nice with the yellow of the daffodils. You certainly can`t go wrong for £1. I am hoping to have quite a collection of containers by the summer.
Charity shops are a great place to look and when the weather improves don`t forget carboot sales.
You can find lots of tips on youtube for ikebana flower arranging, I like this one by a ikebana master.
and this one which shows you how to make a lovely ikebana gift
