- Wedding: May 2014
I finally DIYed all of the flowers for the wedding!!! I went to Hobby Lobby this weekend and picked up some real touch closed roses for the guys for 1.50 each (Reg price $2.99) and some good ole structured open roses for the ladies ($.99 cent each). I also got 2 bushes of small pink silk flowers and some faux lavender (or what looked like lavender. LOL) to compliment them. I was able to make 8 bouts, and 8 corsages with what I bought. With the leftover flowers I had sitting around the house and from this project I was able to make 10 extra corsages for all of our dear aunts! They are going to love them!
To make the bouts and corsages, i just cut the stems to 2-3″ long and bound them tightly with floral tape, no wiring required. I was truly amazed at how easy it was! I also added an 1/4″ wide bow of ivory ribbon to the corsages that isn’t pictured.
