Another Shortcake DIY coming your way!
We made these bouquet charms as a handy dandy way for the bridal party to keep their bouquets separate (why does “keep it secret, keep it safe” immediately spring to mind? ) They were very simple to construct, and took very little time to put together.
A how-to? Here goes!
- wire in the colour and the gauge of your choice (but nothing too thick)
- beads of your choice. It works to either have different beads or different colours for the different bridesmaids
- charms of your choice (try Michael’s, or even cheap teen jewelry stores for charm bracelets)
- cut a length of wire that will be long enough, when folded in half, to not only dangle down from the top of the bouquet handle, but also to be inserted into the bouquet handle itself underneath the ribbon
- cut enough wire for each of your bouquets
- fold each wire in half
- begin stringing. Start with the charm, then add however many beads you think looks pretty.
- twist the two wires together at the top, above the last bead
- give to your florist!
