Weddings are one of the biggest moments in a person's life. Many people spend months or even years planning the perfect wedding. Every little detail needs to be arranged and coordinated to pull off the big day without any hitches. One of the most important details is the wedding flowers. Every bride deserves a big, beautiful bouquet to carry down the aisle. Unfortunately, real flowers don't last very long. If you want a bouquet to keep forever, you can make a gorgeous bouquet using fake flowers. This tutorial will walk you through the steps to make a fake flower bouquet.
Flowers of your choice
Hot glue gun
The first step is to gather the type of flowers you want. Unlike real flowers, fake ones are usually pretty reasonable in price. You can even hit up the local dollar store and take advantage of the selection they offer. If you want silk flowers, you will end up paying a bit more and might need to go to a craft store or specialty store to find them. Once you find the type you want, gather up bunches of the flowers to give yourself an idea of how big you want the bouquet and how much you need to buy.
Arrange the flowers in a bouquet and hold them securely in place. Take the wire and wrap it around the stems of the flowers. Make sure it is tight enough to hold the flowers in place.
Take your green tape and wrap it around the wire so it isn't showing. You want to wrap it around the entire stems so it ends up looking like one giant green stem when you are done.
Now that the bouquet is secure, you can decorate it to make it look nicer. Take a long piece of ribbon in the color of your choice. Wrap it around the stem of the bouquet to add a bit flair to the bouquet. You can also add pieces of lace and ribbon to the inside of the bouquet. A long trail of ribbon from the flowers adds a fancy appearance to the overall style of the bouquet. Attach all the ribbons and lace with the hot glue gun so they stay in place.
If you will be tossing a bouquet at the wedding reception, you can make a smaller version of your bouquet and toss it. This way, you still follow the tradition but get to keep the beautiful bouquet you designed for yourself. For more information, contact a company like Forever Yours Flowers.
