I just recently completed my first DIY project for my wedding next May and I just had to share!
I have been obsessed with fabric flower/brooch bouquets but couldn’t justify the price so I decided to unleash some inner creativity.
I used this tutorial: http://www.rufflesandstuff.com/2011/05/no-sew-fabric-flower-tutorial.html
My flowers came out great… My main reason for choosing this particular tutorial was the ease and they could be accomplished with a glue gun… big PRO as I am not sewing savvy…
I used light pink layered with ivory lace, grey layered with tulle, and a plain cream…
I don’t have pictures of the entire process but I copied the flower tutorial to a tee and secured the flowers onto the floral wire by bending and glueing each one.
I used the glue gun and floral wire for the brooches also and when everything was made, i secured each individual stem with floral tape and then all of the stems…
After it was all taped up, I cut the stems with wire cutters and wrapped it with strips of the pink fabric… I tore these instead of cutting to give it a little more texture.
This is the first project of many for our outdoor wedding but I am pleased

I really like how you did the bottom/underside of the bouquet with the lace. I’m doing a felt flower bouquet and I’m having some trouble figuring out how to do the underside so this is great inspiration!

Thank you! The first layer is cream felt that I cut a small hole into and pushed it up over the stems and then just trimmed around it… I folded the lace over after that 🙂 The lace alone wouldn’t have covered the green stems!

looks like the tutorial is gone… says the page is not there anymore? Your bouquet is beautiful. Great inspiration as I have been struggling with my brooch bouquet. I made fabric flower pomanders but seems the folding was a bit different than yours and I love the way it looks.

That is so weird! If you copy and paste it into your browser it should work… I think 😉
When I first started it I didn’t even know what my end result would actually look like but I like the flowers better bunched up together then separate…
I am glad that you like it!

super easy tutorial!!! When I followed the link it didn’t work & I also tried cut & paste into browser….realized for some reason there was an odd %20 after the .html when i pasted, so deleted that & the turtorial opened up perfectly!!
