Repurposed Flower Frog Ideas

Clever Repurposed Flower Frog Ideas

Not long ago, I posted some fun trash to treasure finds from when I went flea market shopping on Instagram. I bought this green metal object even though I had no idea what it was. All I knew was that it interested me. It was industrial looking and also one of my favorite colors, green. 

This unusual piece had a farmhouse style that just made me attracted to it. I turned it over and saw that it was made by Dazey Manufacturing Company in New York. So, I Googled it and found that it is a flower frog. What the heck is a flower frog? I Googled THAT and found that they are used inside bowls and vases to help arrange flowers and keep them into place… oh… and Martha Stewart collects them (thank goodness for Google!)!! Since I don’t arrange a lot of flowers I thought I’d think of some repurposed flower frog ideas and find some other ideas out there too. Here is a round-up of some fun ideas, both my own and some others I found around the web.

  1. I use the pointy part (meant for a flower stem) to hold my incense sticks! It works perfectly with the thicker sticks and keeps them upright so when they ash… it doesn’t go everywhere!

  2. Great tip! I love how you’ve repurposed an otherwise “junk” item at home. I especially adore the use of flower frog in organizing and displaying dangling earrings.

  3. I collect floral frogs and they are usually made from lead, bronze or glass. I would not recommend the lead metal version for use to hold your toothbrush. Anything you handle a lot actually.
