I swear I almost felt a tickle of hayfever this morning… but it feels far too early! Is it just me?! Every day I think summer is almost here and I can’t wait for the wedding season to really kick in – my mind is rushing happily into July already! Time then, for something amazing, beautiful and allergy-free to feast your crafty eyes upon today: a stunning DIY bridal bouquet for 2016 with step by step instructions from the lovely Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye.
Make your own rose quartz & serenity themed silk bridal bouquet – step by step
You will need:
artificial flowers and foliages of your choice, wire cutters, cotton ribbon, floral twine, scissors
Select a few of your larger focal flower heads as a starting point to build your bouquet, try to spiral the stems as you add them.
Add other flowers around your focal flowers, making sure you keep a rounded even shape. Turning the bouquet in your hand makes adding flowers easier.
Using the floral twine tie the stem of the bouquet tightly near the top of the stems.
Using wire cutters cut the stems to the desired length.
Lay the bouquet on a flat surface and attach your ribbon, in this case a simple tied trailing ribbon.
