A pretty bespoke wedding bouquet for my friend Katy xx
I wanted to make something special for my friend Katy's wedding in May and so was delighted when she liked my suggestion of making her wedding bouquet.
It wasn't a difficult project but time consuming making ribbon roses (but I just sit and make them on the bus, watching tv, anywhere really) and it got really fiddly at the end trying to get everything to sit nicely.

  • Step 1

    Make lots and lots of ribbon roses in various colours. One of those situations, when you think you have enough, make a couple more. Stitch them to pipe cleaners to form 'stems'

    There are plenty of ribbon rose tutorials available but I just went with a rolling and folding process that I think makes them more organic looking

  • Step 2

    I attached the buttons to gold wire and then tied them to the roses. the next step is forming a bunch with them and playing around with the shape and size and how everything sits.

    Step 3

    I put a bit of stuffing in the middle of the bouquet in an attempt to keep everything in place.
    Next cut a doughnut of cardboard and wrap with ribbon to form a base.
    Wrap the pipe cleaner 'stems with ribbon, stitching and securing and then tread the ribbon wrapped cardboard doughnut on to your bouquet.

    After everything was in place-ish and the base was completed, use a plastic 'invisible' thread to stitch everything in place. Then add a couple of wedding brooches for some sparkles :)
