Pretty Easy Bridal Bouquet

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.

 

Materials:

– Assorted artificial flowers bought from the mall

– Floral Wire

– Scrap Felt Cloth

– 1-inch Ribbon

 

Steps:

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!

 

To God be the glory! 🙂

  1. That’s lovely! I didn’t know that so many brides use handmade (non-living) flowers. I guess they would hold up well after years.

    I love flower arranging too, though I’m a novice enthusiast. I had fresh flowers in my bouquet, but my mother-in-law dried them for me immediately. There is still a certain beauty left of them even after almost 20 years.

    I don’t know if you’re interested, but I wrote a post a while ago about flower arranging as a creative outlet for my mental illness recovery. It’s at https://birdflight.blog/2017/04/07/recovery-through-art-my-flower-arranging-self-expression/

    1. Thank you! I actually want to learn flower arranging too. I also love the idea of drying the flowers. If I had known how to do that, I would have preserved my wedding bouquet too. 🙂

    1. Thanks! Indeed. Many brides also request for the whole (female) entourage to have their bouquets in felt/fabric or paper to serve as thank you gifts or keepsakes. 🙂

  2. This is lovely, I am in the process of trying to make my bouquet for my wedding next year (my blog is charting my slow progress haha) and it is a very relaxing hobby! I really like your colours, very autumnal
