  • about 25 contrasted handmade flowers per (big) bouquet
    • of form, we used this method that I’ve written about previously to make our roses / peonies, and there are about iii flowers per colour/type in the bouquet
    • my mom made false fabric succulents using mint dark-green lining material and a method similar to this one
    • the lace ruffled flowers were fabricated by ruffling wide lace trim, rolling it into a spriral, and sewing to secure
  • vintage (or vintage-expect) keys for embellishing (these are the ones my sister used)
  • floral pins (these and these are the ones my sister used)
  • pre-made flowers for filling and sparkly brooches for centers of some flowers (she used this shop)
  • feather boas to pluck feathers from (nosotros used an off white and mint light-green one)
  • an eight” foam ball
  • neutral material chip to embrace the foam brawl
  • a dowel (for the handle)
  • lace trim and ribbon to wrap around the dowel and base of operations of the dowel
  • glue gun


Directions:

  1. Cutting the dowel downwards to the desired size you’d similar your “stem” to be. Ours were about 7″ long.
  2. Trace the circle of the dowel onto the foam ball, cut a pigsty with a knife the size of the circle, so dig down a few inches with a pocketknife or sharp spoons.
  3. Glue the dowel firmly into the pigsty you lot’ve made in the cream brawl with a glue gun.

  5. Apply ribbon and lace trim to muffle the join of the dowel and ball, and wrap it effectually the dowel stem equally desired. My sister finished the ends of her lace trim on the dowel by putting in a few pearl pins similar you would on a existent bouquet stem.
  6. Conform your material flowers onto the foam ball as desired. You can use the floral pins to place the flowers temporarily as you play with the arrangement.
  7. One time you’re satisfied with the organization of your flowers, pull them out one-by-ane, put a trivial glob of hot mucilage on the foam brawl where the flower was, and then place the flower and pin back down onto the ball and hold it in place until the glue adheres. Echo this with all of the flowers so that they’re secure on the cream ball.
  8. Glue brooches into the centers of some (or all!) of the flowers.
  9. Pull feathers from the boas and insert them into the bouquet where desired and secure with hot mucilage.
  10. Tie a vintage key to the base of the stem with some lace trim if desired.
