im not that crafty but im thinking you just need to buy bulk petals some wire and one of those styrafoam floral balls. you could super glue the petals to the wire and get to sticking them in the floral balls. putting them as close to the ball at the top and lengthening the wire as you go down.

just and idea though….

I like that a lot too.  Maybe a Styrofoam bottom wrapped and you could use the wire and petals like suggested above.  I’m going to have to look for this online and see if I can find any ideas.  It’s beautiful.

Oh I love the pink design.

You could use Dollar store flowers (like material Roses) and take em apart for the petals. Find some decorative large leaves and start sewing. I would use a full flower for the core of the bouquet ( stem included) then work outwards, till you have the size you want.

If you wanted to do it by hand, I suggest getting a couple large boxes of large petals, then wire each petal, then add each wired petal to the styrofoam part of a bouquet holder, starting from the outside in to make your layers.

I just posted the same picture on here.. I’m in love with the idea of a glamelia bouquet, but most are so pricey due to the labor it takes to make them; we’re talking upwards of 5 or 6 hours. They are made by wiring each petal together.. I would love to attempt DIY but I KNOW that would be a disaster!

A few sellers on Etsy make them for a $125 price tag – they are real flowers, though.. and the bouquets don’t last long if they are made from real petals.

would you have to make these pretty close to the actual wedding though so they don’t wilt?  i heard they take FOREVER to make.

Have you ever seen this with good quality silk flowers?
