    Hi ladies. I'm challenged when it comes to DIY. I'd love to hear from any of you who have made your own bouquet. I found some beautiful huge daisies at Michael's and I'd love to make my own bouquet. Any helpful hints would be great! Thanks!

      Hey there. Someone just asked this earlier today. Here is that post: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t37343

      Not many responses yet... I suggest you look around and see what you like. I am also making my own bouquet and think it will be fairly easy. I think the hardest part is picking out the flowers you want. I know I spent weeks even months debating about that.

        I made my own bouquet. I wanted to do it in lillies, but I found I needed a lot of smaller "filler flowers" to make it work. I just played with the flowers and kept adding to it until it worked. I used a rubber band to hold the stems together while I worked with it. I suggest you just try playing with flowers you have and see how it looks. If you have a more specific question while you're working on it, I can probably help you with that. Good Luck!

        Here is my bouquet:

          Where did you get the little frames to put on ? I guess I'm most worried about how to put it together? Do you just hot glue the stems? And then use the ribbon? Did you put the extra length from the stems in the bottom before you wrapped with ribbon? I really don't want to mess up flowers with the price they are. Thanks!

            After I had the bouquet arranged the way I wanted, I wrapped green floral tape around it tightly. You can buy the tape in any craft store in the floral department. It sticks to itself. I wouldn't use hot glue, as hot glue has a tendency not to stick in heat and humidity. I left the stems long on the flowers, and then trimmed them to the desired length, then wrapped the ribbon around the stem. The bouquet is very secure. I made the little frames for the pictures as well.
