DIY Casket Spray Ideas

Published: November 7, 2022
funeral homes in White Oak, TX

Flowers play a big role in funerals. They were first associated with funerals as a way to help mask the odor of the body. Since then, they have become a staple with funeral homes in White Oak, TX. You can find flowers in the way of small arrangements on tables as next to the guest book, to large displays in the shapes of crosses or hearts.  

Another popular arrangement is in a casket spray. Although beautiful, these flowers can add quite a cost to the overall funeral budget. One way to save some money is to create the casket spray yourself. Even if you are not concerned about the cost, creating casket spray yourself can add a very meaningful and personal element to your loved one’s service.

What is a Casket Spray?

A casket spray is a floral arrangement that is typically provided by a close relative of the deceased. This person could be the children, spouse, siblings, or parents. This spray will be laid on top the casket during the services as a way to adorn it. The spray could be an inside spray, couch spray, or half-couch spray.

DIY Ideas for Cast Spays

Because this arrangement is a focal point, it provides a wonderful opportunity to add a very personal touch to the service. Some ideas for DIY casket sprays include: 

  • Personal Meaning - Flowers each have their own meaning and symbolism. Create a casket spay that conveys a message to your loved one by selecting certain flowers that represent what you would like to say.
  • Eco-Friendly Spray - More and more people are becoming eco-friendly. If this was important to you loved one, create a eco-friendly, organic casket spray by looking for natural, fair-trade flowers. You can also use biodegradable craft foam for the base of the spray rather than Styrofoam which is not very friendly for the environment.
  • Monochromatic Color Scheme - A casket spray that is in a monochromatic color scheme can make a very dramatic and elegant statement. To do this, select different shades of flowers of the same color.
  • Paper Flower Spray - If you would like to forgo real flowers, consider using paper flowers. There are several online video tutorials that show how to make many variations of paper flowers. You could make the flowers out of old papers or make it them more special by making them out of notes and letters people write to the deceased.
  • Sports themed spray - If your loved one was an avid sprots fan and followed as certain team, you could create a spay that uses flowers of the team’s colors.
