- Wedding: October 2015 - Don\'t know...
Hey! So, I’m getting married in the nearish future, and while my fiance and I love steampunk and plan to have elements of it in our wedding, my heart will always lie with good ol’ Lord of the Rings and Renaissance faries.
I’m DIYing a lot of things for the wedding, including fabric flowers for bridesmaids bouquets. I had bought a plastic flower holder thing at Hobby Lobby and I thought, “what shall I do with the plastic handle the girls hold? Should I wrap it in fabric, or ribbon, or paint it?” Then, I put wedding stuff aside and took up Sting, my replica LOTR sword my friend just got me. I was like “Look at me, I’m so freaking cool with my awesome orc slaying sword. I’m just going to carry Sting on my wedding da-…”
Oh. Snap. Thus, my sword bouquet was born.
This was a relatively easy and quick project, minus making all of the flowers. This is one of 7 that I will need to make, for my bridesmaids. I’ll probably make a tossing bouquet without the sword…for obvious reasons 😛
Thanks for looking!
