Weddings, Prom, Mother's Day, or You just think you Kick Azz!
Here's how I did it.
This is just one of the MANY designs that can inspire...
Head over to Pinterest to see what catches your eye...
Well, as you can see here I've got my Craftynesses together:
Flers, Coffee, Pad for Tunes of Inspo, Bins o' Things like Feathers, String, Beads, etc...
Love that watermark...
I'm not good at that... yet!
When I even remember to do it! lol
Here's where sh*# gets real:
- FLORAL TAPE
- TINY SPRIG OF PUSSY WILLOW (cuz spring)
- ONE TINY ROSE "spray rose" ($8.98/bunch @ local grocery)
- A FEATHER OR TWO
- ONE SPRIG OF BABIES BREATH ($2.99/bunch @ local grocery)
*** $11.97 total spent on whole vase of bud-ness!***
- SAFETY PIN
- DETERMINATION & RESOLVE!
One Feather is that rustic-y Brown, the other White for contrast against the lapel.
Chop that Feather till it is the desired length!
Take yer handy hands & start sizing up your elements to see what needs trimming back...
Lay em all out together to see how they look as an arrangement.
Loosely hold on as you fine tune it.
Tiny bit o' wire...
Twist it 'round to stabilize - takes less floral tape to secure this way which will reduce the bulk...
Wrap your Floral Tape around one time to start...
If this is your first time working with floral tape, note that if you stretch it gently it becomes stickier. ;-)
Place your Safety Pin against the arrangement - Clasp Side Inward - and wrap it twice with the Tape.
Time For TWINE!
Place the Twine at the Base & wind both sides up so you can tie it towards the start of your arrangement.
If you're not into Twine, use ribbon, lace, burlap, fabric scraps, your imagination! :-D
Took me 10mins.
For just one...
If you are Making many....
Get your Friends and Fam into it!!!
Rustic, Bohemian, Cute as a Boutonn...
I Made them for all the men at the Ceremony, whether they liked it or not! lol
These are just a few examples ;-)
Could be a fun thing to wear everyday...
Mother's Day is coming... Make a bunch for yer Matriarchs!
Get over to the Pinterest and get inspired!
Fabric or Paper Flower Corsages...
Rock On! See how pretty I am... I mean, the Boutonniere is... ;-)
