Artificial flowers do not have roots but they too are pretty. Some fake flowers in fact, look real. Artificial flower bouquets have also become a trend among modern brides though they are more fondly called as “handmade flowers” (as majority are hand-crafted) than artificial or fake.
I for one, have created several bouquets already, though so far I’ve only played around with felt cloth/fabric and paper. I’ve tried making fabric flowers before but I found that they are quite tedious to make since they are often too soft or the edges run amd burning edges is not really my thing. :p
But a friend came to me this morning, requesting help — they needed a bouquet by Friday. I am busy with work lately and I know I won’t have the time to make them by hand and I am really really really glad she agreed to using artificial flowers instead. I honestly have been wanting to try this out and I am sooo glad I finally had an opportunity!
This project took me only 20 minutes to make.
– Assorted artificial flowers bought from the mall
– Floral Wire
– Scrap Felt Cloth
– 1-inch Ribbon
1. Arange the pieces of flowers according to your taste or choice of design.
2. Tie or bundle the flowers using a floral wire to ensure the pieces do not fall off.
3. Wrap the bundled stems of the bouquet with felt fabric.
4. Accentuate the handle with a ribbon.
Pretty easy right?
Care to share your own bouquet projects? I’d love to see more for inspiration!
I don’t know much about color harmony but I love how these flowers blended together. You may say they are more of an autumn motif but to me, they shout Summer!!! And that’s coz over here, summer has finally started!
My GERD has made me terribly sick this past week and I have been recommended by my doctor to take a rest after my endoscopy — No outdoor activities or exaggerated movements. No stress or work. Relax. Breathe. Sleep.
But since I cannot really stand doing nothing, I decided to make sime flowers and yes, work from time to time. ^^v
Mother’s Day is coming. These flowers would be lovely to give, right?
If I were to sell them, how much do you suppose I could/should sell each?
That’s all for now. Do lemme know your thoughts! 😉
Some opportunities come only once in a lifetime. But sometimes, they can happen twice. And in such instances, you can only marvel at how truly wonderful God is. 🙂
So today, let me share with you another project I did for a local tv station. I did a DIY segment on Paperclips last November and I was so happy I got called in again last month for another shoot… This time, on sacks/burlap! And the segment aired last Monday, April 3, 2017.
You would think that since this is my second time, it’d be easier but it was not. You could even say I had a lot more boo-boos on this shoot. Nevertheless, it was a fun experience and the people were amazing to work with! I thank God that everything turned out well and I pray that the viewers and the staff of the network were pleased with the outcome.
I had a lot of lessons learned and I hope to work on them and improve next time.
I pray for a “next time”.
But as my friend reminded me tonight, seek first God’s Kingdom and all these will be added unto you… Good things happen according to God’s will and perfect timing in our lives. He knows the best plan and course of action for us! 😉
