Hi all, I have recently become obsessed with this bouquet:
But I cannot justify the 250 dollar price tag that comes with it. I would love to DIY it, but I don’t even know where to begin. Has anyone come across any tutorials for something similar? Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

Could you try Martha Stewart’s tissue paper roses/coffee filter roses on a larger scale? You could buy regular tissue paper to cut them from. It might take more than one try to get it right but it is so cool!

you could always get something like this:
and trim the stem down to make it a bouquet

I have that site saved to my favorites and LOVE LOVE LOVE the big single bloom. If it had been in my budget, I totally would have done it.

@leavingthecity: Thank you! And good luck on your hunt.
I found this tutorial you might like. It’s a different look but would probably work quite well on a large scale!

Martha Stewart has a few tutorials for fabric flowers, there was even a template for one about the size you need. I was thinking of making something similar for my BM’s (since im really into fabric flowers now). I was thinking i would make the flower, attach floral wire by folding it and twisting it in half, sticking it i between the bottom layers of the flower and stiching it to the bottom layer.
For the holder i would cut a paper towl roll to the size you want the holder to be, decorate it, fill it with foam, and stick the floral wire in there.
I hope you can envision what im saying. I didnt make it yet so i dont have pics but this is how i was thinking of doing it
