-An assortment of wild faux flowers, artificial greenery, and filler flowers such as Protea, Poppies, Roses, Peonies, Berries, Wild Raspberries, Thistles, Eucalyptus, Smilax, and Sedum Succulents
-Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Gather your faux greenery and Thistle spray flowers together. Then add a focal flower, like a Protea bloom, into the middle.
Step 2: Add pieces of the Raspberry spray throughout the bundle.
Step 3: Include smaller focal flowers, like dark pink Protea blooms.
Step 4: Continue clustering your medium sized blooms around the proteas.
Step 5: Trim the larger Sedum Succulent bloom and place it between two flowers of the same color to break up the color and add depth.
Step 6: Add smaller blooms to the bouquet. This bouquet features white Poppy stems and blush Roses.
Step 7: Increase the bouquets' texture by adding a purple Thistle bundle and mauve Wildflower pick.
Step 8: With floral tape, attach several feathers to the blue Thistle spray, hiding the tape within the foliage.
Step 9: Using a zip tie, secure the stems together tightly. Tape the bouquet stems around the zip tie with heavy duty floral tape.
Step 10: Cover the floral tape with a beautiful muslin bouquet wrap. Start the wrap by hot gluing the ribbon end to the floral tape. Continue to wrap the muslin around the stems several times, and cut the cloth so that the edge ends in the back of the bouquet. Cut the ribbon and glue to the back side of the bouquet to secure. Hand tie a knot around the wrap of lace or silk ribbon to add a decorative touch.
Step 11: Trim the bottom of the stems so that they are even.
There you have it... You have now created your own Protea & Berry Bouquet for your upcoming boho wedding! After your wedding, place this bouquet in a beautiful ceramic vase
and you have a stunning keepsake to decorate your home.
