This D.I.Y. post is perfect for the bride who is looking for something a little more unique for her wedding. We all know of the traditional floral bouquets but we wanted to do a twist on the traditional bouquet. Today’s post is really simple and you can get as creative as you want with it. This tutorial is also awesome for making hanging centerpieces for a head table as well or even a centerpiece on your guests table. We think this D.I.Y. project would be very pretty hanging from a tree for a ceremony backdrop too. The ideas from this tutorial are really endless. So lets get started on how to make these geometric bouquets.
Step One: Gather your tools and supplies. Most of ours were purchased at Michaels.
- Flowers and greens of your liking ( We used some Ranunculus, Dahlia, Leaves, Pussy Willows, Calista, Roses and Wisteria.)
- Wire cutters, scissors and knife
- Floral foam block
- Geometric shape (Feel free to spray paint the shape to your color scheme if you like.)
- Ribbon, Lace. or wire. ( We chose ribbon.)
Step Two: Cut your foam block. Measure out a piece of foam that will fit into your geometric shape. Then cut the foam with a knife and place inside the shape, carefully. The foam is very fragile and will break apart easily.
Step Three: Start filling the bottom half of the foam with your greenery and hanging flowers.
Step Four: Start adding in your larger flower pieces now. Continue putting them in on all sides of you shape. If you have any open spaces feel free to add so greenery or leaves in to fill it up.
Step Five: Add your string, lace, ribbon or wire to the top for you to carry or hang.
This project is not very time consuming and super easy to customize to you liking and wedding style.
