DIY Bouquets

Flowers are gorgeous, and there’s nothing like a beautiful bouquet, but fresh flowers can be so expensive, so I’ve gathered some cute DIY ideas to inspire you to make your own bouquet, that will not only save you money, but will last a lifetime to remind you of your special day.  With these handy little tutorials and a little creative flair, you can make bouquets, center pieces, button holes, corsages – The only limit is your imagination!

1. DIY Crepe Paper Flowers

CREPE PAPER FLO

If you had told me you could make a beautiful bouquet from crepe paper, I wouldn’t have believed you in a million years, but with these amazing tutorials from Martha Stewart Weddings and The Bride’s Cafe  you will learn to make the most beautiful flowers out of what is probably the weirdest material in this list!  I love how simple these are to make, and clearly how beautiful they can look!

2. DIY Lace Flowers


LACE FLOW

Lace is a classic wedding fabric, and with this tutorial from Missie Krissie you’ll be well on your way to making a gorgeous, statement bouquet.  Adding a brooch or some beading will really help the delicate lace to pop!

3. DIY Ribbon Flowers

SATIN RIBBON FLOWERS

There are so many different colours and types of ribbon out there, but I love these gorgeous satin flowers by Hamilton’s Boutique and Make It Do.  A bouquet of satin roses would compliment a bridal gown perfectly!

4. DIY Fabric Flowers

ZFABRIC FLOWERS

I love these sweet little flowers.  With these you’re free to use any fabric, any pattern, any colour to really get the look that you want.  Simply Vintage Girl uses a synthetic silky fabric, whereas Little Birdie Secrets makes hers with organza.

5. DIY Paper Flowers

Being a bookworm I love, love, LOVE these flowers.  Of course you could choose to make them with various coloured papers, but just imagine having flowers made from pages of your childhood favourites.  You can easily scoop up books from any charity shop,  and I just think they’re beautifully effective.  Check out The Elli Blog for a brilliant paper rose tutorial, and free downloads.  If you fancy something a little different, why not look at Folding Trees for a Kusudama tutorial, which comes in two simple parts.  Part 1, (making the flowers) & Part 2 (putting them together into a ball or bouquet.)
