I finally finished! It took almost a year, but I hung in there. There are about 115 stems in it, so you can probably guess it’s pretty big. I took it apart a started over several times. I made a total of 135 stems and it was more difficult than I thought it would be to determine just how big my faux hydrangea bouquet needed to be. I wanted it HUGE, but the bouquet was so big, I still had holes not covered with the 135 stems! Crazy, right? The final result was 34 inches in circumference and 115 stems. I love her! Now that I’m finally finished, I’ll be glad to answer any questions you may have about this type of project.
