When Josephine started to plan how to make her wedding bouquet, she had already envisioned that it would be a little bit quirky with a lil but vintage inspiration.  With not-so-much budget to buy lots of fancy new brooches, she decided to get seconds vintage style necklaces! These necklaces, some are flowery, some are quite retro style (perhaps by grandmother generations passed down & sold)  and some with beads and fabric flowers glued on them. So that when she came up with a brilliant idea “why not detach the fabric flowers to form my very own wedding bouquet?!” It was really quick and easy to make, lets get creatives...

Supplies you need: 

  • Fabric flowers & assorted flower hair-clips
  • Cotton twine
  • A few scraps of wool (you may dye them in green to get the 'green feel')
  • Scissors
  • An egg beater/whisk (anything similar- using for the stem!)
Step 1:
Hold on to the whisk as shown on the image and with a little force, press em' by trying to deform it into a oval/circular shape. You can use tiny wires or something to tie on the criss-cross parts to keep them stay in shape if you need to.
Step 2:
Stuff the scraps of wool inside in whisk. This will help form the shape of the bouquet.
Step 3:
Can you believe you’re almost done? See its easy!
Detach the flowers from the necklaces and attach them to pins/hair clips then start clipping them and the assorted hair clips onto the whisk, until you’ve covered all of the wool area to form the bouquet – Do go mad and be creative (by adding pearls, butterflies, etc) cos we enjoyed this part so much!
Tips: You can pin/use wire to attach the flowers without clips on onto the curves of the whisk (not really to the wool directly as the wool only helps forming the whole shape.)
Step 4:
Cut off a fair length of the cotton twine and wrap it around the egg beater stem to cover the metal.
And then…voila! You’re done!
Hope you’ll enjoy making your own pretty bouquet soon!
