Very pretty. Did you make this?
Thank you ladies, andyes i made this all on my own!
i love this! would you mind sharing how you made this? i want to do this exact thing but not sure how to. thanks!
@Lauralou99: First of all, you know they are all silk flowers right?
That being said, i bought the small white flowers with rhinestone stamens at Michaels. they were mot single stems tho, my FH was graceful enough to separate all 3 bunches for me. I found the real touch roses at Joann’s -6 pieces (lucky find as i had never seen them there before) and then bought 1 bunch of hydrangeas with another 6 real touch Callas, plus a roll floral tape and wire.
As for the arrangement, there really was no science to it. i just bunched them all together and rearranged them over and over again till they looked exactly the way i wanted them.
Finally i tied the floral wire around the arrangement as tight as possible and then taped it (if you’ve never used floral tape before-you have to stretch/pull the tape as you go, otherwise, IT WILL NOT STICK).My dear FH trimmed the stems to the exact length i wanted with pliers (Or something that looked like pliers-i’m not sure)….
To get the perfect smooth handle, i stacked 2 empty TP rolls (You can use the empty paper towel roll thing too), carefully taped them together and then sipped the taped stems/handle into it, covered it 1 more time with cardboard paper
As for the blinged out handle, i was going to use to manually stick every single stone, but then i found THESE! Self adhesive sheets at Joanns too. and VOILA! my blinged out bouquet for all to admire, Thank you.
