D.I.Y. Wedding Bouquet

Since I started the day off with a post about affordable weddings… I thought I’d continue on that theme and show you this very simple D.I.Y. bouquet I put together today. 
All you need are flowers within your color palette, an elastic band,  a beautiful ribbon, and a glittery little bauble.
For a more expensive look try grouping several different flower varieties with a similar hue (look for an assortment of shapes and textures that will play nicely off one another)… or stick to one type grouped tightly together for a sweet and simply, chic look.

For this example I picked up two packs of beautiful daffodils from my local Trader Joe’s (less then $4 for all of them).  I pulled the flowers apart and then reassembled them together to give the bouquet the shape I wanted.  Then I rubber-banded the stems in the center (under where the ribbon is), wrapped and tied a length of velvet ribbon around the band (only $1.75 from a local craft supply shop), and finished the whole thing off with a sweet little earring that I picked up at a thrift store (only $1.50 for the pair).  Tada!  Easy and pretty… don’t you think?!

    Hello!

    I love this bouquet – so gorgeous! I know this is kind of an old post, but I was wondering: do you have any idea how tall it is?

    Thank you,

    Kristin

    Hi Kristin. It's hard to remember the precise height of it, but I would estimate that it was around 10 inches tall. Of course the stems can be kept longer or cut shorter depending on preference, so the end result is really up to each bride.
