So I decided to try and make my toss bouquet after seeing so many pictures of beautiful ribbon bouquets on here and on etsy. So I decided to make my own using some of the ribbon from bridal shower, and some that I bought in my wedding colors to use as the rehersal dinner bouquet and the toss bouquet. However I almost love it so much I might have to make another one to use as my actual bouquet! Let me know what you think! The ribbon roses are all made out of satin ribbon.

@artbee:total time was about 2 hours. Once I figured out how to do the roses I could make a about 6 of them in 10 minutes. And that was what took the longest!
Thanks everyone! I love this bouquet! Fiance even took a picture of it on his phone to show people lol cause he even likes it! lol

So I’m on a roll today with uploading my pics on here.
Here is an update of my toss bouquet, since I was having a hard time coming up with what to do for the stem/handle. Well I found this floral wire at Michals that reminded me of vine, so I used that cut into peices and attached it to the bottom of the bouquet, and weaved it all together, and then I took the remaining lace and placed it in the center to make it not look so empty. Sorry for the odd pictures, it was hard to get a good pic of it! I love it though, and it’s very sturdy and light weight!

ChantelleyLace & M.Ruder: They are pretty east to do! You need ribbon (nonwire) and you take a strip about 24-36 inches long, start at one end, and fold the ribbon at a 90 degree angle and wrap the ribbon around itself, once you wrap the folded section all the way, fold again, and keep doing that until you are at the end of your strip of ribbon. This youtube video shows you how to do them pretty well, however there are 3-4 different ways to make ribbon roses, they way I just described I can do the fastest, and I love how they look so that is why I choose that style, it’s really up to you though!
Then take a needle and thread and put a few a stitches into the bottom of the rose. I can usually get 4-5 roses out of one roll of ribbon. Once you make all of your roses, hot glue them onto a styrofoam ball.
I also strung some pearls in with the roses to give a little some extra, and I put some little scraps of lace in between them as well.
Once all of the roses are on, hot glue feathers to the bottom
Them pick out what you want to use for the stem, I used the floral wire that was wrapped in brown “stuff” (sorry I don’t really know how to describe, but you should be able to get the idea from teh pics above)
I cut the wire into about 18″ peices, and then I stuck them inbetween the feathers on the bottom of the bouquet, hot glued the crap out of them, and then weaved them together.
