@MrsBee2B:  Just find your inspiration photo and try your best to duplicate it.  It’s important to buy high quality faux flowers.  Some look really cheap, so avoid those.  GL!

I am currently making mine. I found a bunch of fabrics I liked, be it the pattern, colour etc. then just looked up tutorials. If you want cotton flowers look up cotton fabric flower tutorial, if you want to try melting then google that. Also, pinterest is where I found a lot of flower tutorials.

For assembling them you can use a whisk (also on google), or a foam (hard foam, not the wet floral foam it just flakes apart) ball with a stick shoved in it and wrapped in ribbon. I used the suggestion and am going with a heavy gauge fabric covered floral wire, I make a little spiral on one end and hot glue my flower to the spiraled part. Then I just form the bouquets and wrap with tape or floral tape as you go to keep them together.

 

Hope this helps! I looked up how to do it for ages before I decided that the wire and glue was the best option for me.

@MrsBee2B:  The ones you have posted have broaches, I am not too sure how to do that style besides maybe sewing them to your flower, but you will need a strong base to attach those flowers to, wire may not be strong enough as they may bend out of shape as the day goes on.
