DIY Bouquet

Materials: 
Silk Flowers in your Wedding Colors
Artificial Greenery
Floral Tape
Wire Cutters
Scissors
Silk Ribbon

DIY Bouquet

Step 1: Using your wire cutters, trim the leaves from the silk flower stems.  We will be incorporating unique greenery sprays throughout the bouquet soon!

DIY Bouquet

Step 2: Begin bundling flowers together.  Start with the medium to large flower heads.  This will be your base to work from. 

For a bouquet that is all your own, mix together flowers in different sizes, shapes, and colors.

DIY Bouquet

You can tape the flowers together as you go or hold the stems together in one hand and wait to tape until you are finished.  To use stemwrap gently pull the tape as you wrap, this will help the tape stick to itself.

Step 3: Continue adding florals.  Use different flowers to break up colors and textures.  This will add depth to your bouquet and give it that "wild" look.

Step 4: If you have shorter stems or are using a silk flower bush in your bouquet, you can add length to the flower stems with floral tape.  This is a great tip for adding succulents to your bouquet. Use discarded stems from flowers whose stems are too long.  Discarded stems are also a great way to fill out your bouquet handle.

Step 5: Add greenery throughout your bouquet.  For a wild, organic look add cascading leaves to the base of your bouquet.  The wire stem in artificial greenery is easy to bend and move to create the look you love. 

DIY Bouquet

Step 6: Secure the flowers into place with floral tape.  Throughly wrap the stems together, you don't want anything to move during the bouquet toss.

With your wire cutters, trim the stems so they are even. Leave at least 6" of stem. 

Tip: Practice holding it in your hands, like you would as you walk down the aisle, to get an idea of how much of a handle you feel comfortable with.

Step 7: Cover the stemwrap with ribbon.  Start by wrapping the 1 1/2 inch silk ribbon around the stems.  Tie the ends together and allow the ribbons to hang freely.  To up your ribbon game, try adding a second color and/or some velvet.  You too can wrap your bouquet like a pro!

You can mix and match your flowers and colors to create bouquets for your entire wedding party!  Add more flowers and greenery to increase the size of your bouquet so that it stands out.  Use flowers that POP like bold protea and brightly colored hellebore.
