My best friend is getting married this weekend! I couldn’t be more excited for her. As part of my duty as the “Matron of Honor” I decided to create a mock flower bouquet for her to practice with during the rehearsal out of all the ribbons used as wrapping from her bridal showers. I searched and searched to figure out how to do this, but I didn’t find any tutorials (print or internet) that actually worked for me. I kind of played with the ribbons for a VERY LONG while and made a bouquet I am quite happy with, despite the colored ribbon I was working with due to the large number of gifts purchased from Bed Bath and Beyond. Here’s what I did.
Need for 1 flower:
22 in. ribbon
Got a ribbon about 22 inches long.
Tied a single knot at one end leaving a little extra hanging off.
Twisted the longer end away from the knot, added a dab of fabric glue, and wrap around the knot.
Repeat prior step until there is just a little bit of ribbon left.
Take floral wiring and push it into the knot, where the stem looks like it should come from.
Wrap excess ribbon around wire and secure with floral tape.
Create as many flowers as you would like and wrap all the stems together with floral tape.
Then wrap ribbon over floral tape and secure with fabric glue.
Then you have yourself a wedding rehearsal flower bouquet!
