Make your own wedding bouquet | Hello! Hooray!

Tutorial: how to make a floral bouquet

The School of Thrift has had a wedding theme for the last couple of weeks, and it has been really inspiring to see lots of ideas on the Festival of Thrift Google+ page! I’ve already written a tutorial post about how to make some simple thrifty fabric bunting, and I wanted to show you how to make a bouquet too. So here’s my tutorial: how to make a floral bouquet. It’s actually surprisingly easy, and if you’re looking to have a crafty wedding or a wedding on a budget, then it’s one of the ways that you can save money and create something beautiful and unique to you. I made the bouquet in the photo for just Β£10!

 

You will need:

 

Some flowers (I used roses and spray carnations for this bouquet)
Some floristry tape (not the waterproof one)
Sharp scissors
Floristry pins
Ribbon

You’ll need to do a few practice runs before the real thing – experiment with different colours and flowers and pick your favourites too πŸ™‚ This is my actual wedding bouquet – I bought flowers from various stalls on York market to put it together:
