Its very lovely. I really like it. I wish I had the confidence to do one. I’m a crafty gal AND a bit of a perfectionist. I wouldn’t be happy with any outcome. haha

I am very, very impressed! I always wanted to make my own fabric bouquet but could never figure out how to get them into the bouquet shape – all the tutorials made it seem like it just happened by magic!

May I ask how you made your actual flowers and what that dollar store cone thing actually is (so I can look for one, heh heh!).

Looks cute!

Just an idea to add girth, when I made my brooch bouquet, I bought a short 6 inch PVC pipe from Home Depot. I got a long cylinder piece of styrofoam and cut it so that it would fit in the PVC pipe and put some hot glue around it and pushed it into the PVC pipe. Then I put my bouquet in it and made sure the “stems” were tightly in the styrofoam and then wrapped the PVC with ribbon. Or you could put the stems inside a PVC pipe and just glue the top of the PVC pipe to the bottom of your lace holder thing.

I’m curious as to what patterns you used for your flowers…I LOVE the idea of doing DIY bouquets and fabric flowers, but i want there to be variety like with yours…also, to add some girth to the stem, you could try adding chenille stems and wrapping those with the ribbon? Do you think instead of lace, this type of bouquet would look nice with feathers on the bottom?

Your bouquet looks AWESOME and so clean! LOVE IT.

I love the boquet, but I think you need to do something to the part you hold.  Can you thicken it up a bit and add some pretty material to keep in with the theme?

Love the bouquet!  Great job!! 

I have a tip for ya for the handles…  mine were thin too and I wanted to add some thickness to them but also be comfortable to hold all day, so I went to the hardwad to are store and bought the black foam that you put over your pipes so they don’t freeze…i just cut it to the length i needed and put hot glue down it and shoved it on.  then i wrapped them with hockey tape! (ya, i am canadian!)  and then wrapped them with ribbon and added crystals.     sorry I don’thave any pics of them, but it really didn’t take long to do either.
