Well, it's not completely finished, but it's getting there! Here's my DIY bridal bouquet so far.
The white "ribbon" is paper in the pic just to see how it looks. I'll go get the white ribbon from Michael's tomorrow to do it for real.
It ended up not being as big as I'd planned, but I still love it!!!!
Not sure if I'll add the swav. crystals in some of the blooms or not. I kind of like the more natural look, especially with the burlap (which I LOVE). I will also need to get the end trimmed somehow so that there's only an inch below the burlap showing. I want it cleanly cut across. Any ideas on how to do this?? Home Depot?? (The stakes are wooden.)
Will post the final pics! Hopefully I finish tomorrow. Then, it's off to make the bridesmaids' bouquets! Woo Hoo!!!!
On a completely unrelated note to this bouquet....
Coconoir -- I found this pic in my phone as I was trying to upload the bouquet pic. I thought of you and your theme of metamorphosis with the butterfly!! My FI and I went to a butterfly house some odd weeks ago, and it was a completely magical experience. We even saw butterflies emerging from cocoons and others taking their first flight. I love how the pic says the Magic of Metamorphosis. I know your journey with your Hubby-to-be will be magical as you both take flight. Love!
