I really like it how it is actually.. Sorry no good suggestions here… Only idea is smaller flowers in between? IDK.. you could always use half styrofoam or a styrofoam wreath as your base and attach the flowers to wire… good job though!

I think it looks great. I am working on making my own. What is it that you bought at Hobby Lobby to hold the flowers together? So far I have made roses attached to floral stem wire. I figured I would just have a bunch of stems and then tape them all together.

It’s really thick. They are also very long so I cut them in half with wire cutters. I got a pack of 12 at Michaels for I believe a $1.99. The package says Floral Stem Wire 16 gauge.

Very pretty, no suggestions here!  If you use the bouquet holder with the glue fabric to it or use the heavyweight doublesided fusing and fuse the fabric of your choice and wrap it around the bouqet like the cone.  Hope that makes sense.

I am doing fabric bouquets too.  I found this at hobby lobby the other day and I think it will be perfect for holding everything in place while I arrange the flowers and keeping them there throughout the day.  It also helps to create a wider “handle” so the flowers look more realistic. http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/hand-tied-bouquet-holder-624734/
